Bug#910498: debian-edu: autopkgtest regression: education-menus_2.10.38_amd64.deb (--unpack):, trying to overwrite '/usr/share/tasksel/descs/debian-edu-tasks.desc

Source: debian-edu
Version: 2.10.38
Severity: serious
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-ci@lists.debian.org
User: debian-ci@lists.debian.org
Usertags: regression

Dear maintainers,

With a recent upload of debian-edu the autopkgtest of debian-edu fails
in testing when that autopkgtest is run with the binary packages of
debian-edu from unstable. It passes when run with only packages from
testing. In tabular form:
                       pass            fail
debian-edu             from testing    2.10.38
all others             from testing    from testing

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report. I am surprised
that piuparts doesn't detect this. As it seems that both education-menus
and education-tasks seem to ship the same file but don't conflict.

Currently this regression is contributing to the delay of the migration
to testing [1]. Can you please investigate the situation and fix it? If
needed, please change the bug's severity.
