RE: release critical bugs of grace

If it is a name change of package, shouldn't it
be then:
  provides  xmgr
  replaces  xmgr
  conflicts xmgr
which should ensure (?) removal of xmgr when grace
is installed and still satisfy dependencies, if there
are any

or are they really meant to coexist peacefully in one
