Re: Correct way to rename a binary package

Since I want to support smooth upgrades, I need to do the following:

  Package: hunchentoot
  Version: 2.0
  Provides: cl-hunchentoot [1]
  Replace: cl-hunchentoot (<< 2.0)
  Conflicts: cl-hunchentoot (<< 2.0)

  Package: cl-hunchentoot
  Depends: hunchentoot
I was under the impression the "conflicts" was considered bad (it makes upgrading from an old version of cl-hunchentoot to hunchentoot harder), and it was generally better to leave the conflicts out and rely on the replaces header alone.

Or... maybe this is a slightly different situation.
