TLP package vs. pm-utils
i'm the author of the TLP power management tool .
With the help of my sponsor Andreas Tille i prepared a Debian package
 for TLP 0.6.
Older TLP packages – available via my PPA, not in Debian – depend on
pm-utils (pm-suspend) for being called upon suspend/resume events. The
necessity to depend on (and coexist with) pm-utils is imho gone with
Debian's move to systemd.
Looking into the current pm-utils package in Debian testing i noticed
that it is kind of inert: nor is pm-powersave called by upowerd –
changed in upower 0.99.1-1, see  –, neither is pm-suspend called by
My conclusion would be to add
> conflicts: pm-utils
to my package – associated with the additional advantage that there is
no need to mask pm-utils' power.d/hooks via postinst/postrm anymore .
- Am i missing something here?
- Is my conclusion correct?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
