Upstream-only version dependency in debian/control
(Please CC me in your replies, I'm not subscribed to debian-devel)
I'm trying to get my package to depend on a specific upstream version of
another package and ignore the Debian component of the version string.
Given package foo 1.2.3-1, I want package bar (which is not built from the
same source package) to have a line like:
Depends: foo (= 1.2.3)
Depends: foo (= 1.2.3-1)
Depends: foo (>= 1.2.3)
(since that last one would accept foo 1.2.4-1 for instance)
Is that possible? Is this documented anywhere? Chapter 7 of the policy
doesn't seem to mention it.
