Hi, Steve Langasek <firstname.lastname@example.org> writes:Ubuntu includes several Perl module packages that do not adhere Debian's naming policy. Once Debian includes these modules in a differently named package, there are problems if one tries to install both packages at the same time. See  or  for examples.Do you have a proposal for how to identify these packages? Ubuntu packages are also expected to comply with this part of Debian policy, so this doesn't change anything unless we can automatically identify the ones that don't.I did search for package containing files in /usr/(lib|share)/perl5. Most problematic packages were already renamed, I only filed a bug report for gtk2-ex-formfactory-perl  (already fixed). I also identified a package that was renamed in Debian, but where the old package has not been removed from Ubuntu yet .
Perhaps file a bug against lintian to watch this kind of pattern? Regards, - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
