Unfortunately, the old version I have on my machine is actually older than buster and not installable in buster. Thus a compatible version should be created first. Something like that was done in the past. BTW, I think that "unison" should just be a metapackage depending on unison-debian<x>, where <x> is the Debian version (with adapted paths and executable names). That way, users could install both Unison from stable and from testing/unstable (unison just depends on libc6, so that this should be OK in practice). This may make things easier for unison-all. -- Vincent Lefèvre <vinc...@vinc17.net> - Web: <https://www.vinc17.net/> 100% accessible validated (X)HTML - Blog: <https://www.vinc17.net/blog/> Work: CR INRIA - computer arithmetic / AriC project (LIP, ENS-Lyon)
