Subject: libc6 conflicts with 'timezones', while timezones depends on libc6
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

Package: timezones

Is 'timezones' a required packet on a libc6 system? It depends on libc6,
but glibc conflicts with    timezones!

My `dselect' apt method source list:

deb http://ftp.at.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.at.debian.org/debian-non-US unstable non-US

In the select menu I see the following:
    --- Available packages (not currently installed)
---                            =

    ----- Available Required packages -----
    ------- Available Required packages in section base -------
 --- Req base     timezones GNU C Library:
Timezone data and utilities

If I try to select it, I get the following:

timezones    removed (configs remain);  remove (was: remove).  Required
libc6 conflicts with timezones
timezones depends on libc6

and it deselects some hundred packages (depending on libc6)
