I have now added versioned conflict scanning and also checking for packages
which depend on versions older than the ones about to be installed.

To make packages with these problems easier to find, there are two new lists:


It is not obvious to me how (or if) I can recognize a "bad" versioned conflict
from a "good". For instance, lvm10 conflicts with lvm2 << 1.95.15-3 while the
lvm2 version in testing is 1.95.15-1. Is this simply a case of lvm10
superseding lvm2, and nothing I should warn about? If so, how can I tell?
