Dear Florent,

Thanks for the hint.

As the policy says:

"Please note that this does not override the section on changelog files
below, so the file /usr/share/package/changelog.Debian.gz must refer to
the changelog for the current version of package in question. In
practice, this means that the sources of the target and the destination
of the symlink must be the same (same source package and version)."

Is there a way to make sure that probcons-extra will depend on the
probcons package with the same version as itself?

Have a nice day,
