Re: Doing a proper package split (cream)

'cream' is a package with a lot of documentation. Until version 0.33 I had all the files in a single package. Now in 0.34 I want to split off the documentation so i have cream (main) and cream-doc (documentation).

That only makes sense when the documentation is large and the package has arch-specific components. Since both packages are arch:all, at least in the control file you posted, I doubt it is worth it.

Conflicts: cream(<<0.34)
Replaces: cream(<<0.34)

If there is no functional conflict, you can omit the Conflicts: here, as you are merely replacing files in the old version. This would, however, allow a situation where the new docs and the old programs are installed.
