Is this OK? Do I need something else?
in the binary section of hunchentoot, I think you have to add
If you want to provide a transitional binary package cl-hunchentoot
which depends on hunchentoot you can't use this conflicts. If you
would go *without* such a transitional package (and I think this
is an alternative solution if there was no such package in any stable
release) you should use this conflicts. In addition you should think
if there are other packages that depend from the former package.
