Re: OpenSSH uploaded replacing ssh, please test
In article <firstname.lastname@example.org> you write:

It strikes me that changing the package names is a bad idea, likely to
randomly break things under users' feet and generally cause confusion.
Why cause confusion by having `ssh' versions before 1.2.<whatever> be
one thing and versions after <whatever-else> be another, when we have
mechanisms to do this properly?
(e.g. openssh replaces ssh, or arrange things with alternatives so that
both can coexist)
