Re: Source package taking over removed package's place in the namespace

Situation: Two source packages collide in the namespace. The second
one gets rather awkward name. Later, the first package dies and is
removed from unstable, testing, and (after release) stable, but still
Question: Can the second source package take the first source package's
(less awkward) name, or does it have to wait until oldstable is archived?
So far as I can tell, that should be fine.
dak requires that (source, version) tuples be unique, so the new source
package would need to have a different (practically, higher) version than
the old one; that's not a problem in this case.
