Hello and thanks Andreas for the bug report,
golang-metrics-dev is outdated for 2.5 years and greatly deviates from
the package naming convention defined by the pkg-go team in
This naming deviation apparently causes this bug to reoccur.
Instead of removing the up-to-date golang-github-rcrowley-go-metrics-dev
packace which follows the right naming
convention, me and my sponsor suggest the following actions:
* Revise golang-github-rcrowley-go-metrics-dev using Conflicts:
golang-metrics-dev & Replaces: golang-metrics-dev.
* Open bug report to the 8 reverse dependencies of golang-metrics-dev
and suggest to depend on golang-github-rcrowley-go-metrics-dev.
* Request removal of golang-metrics-dev from the archive when it has
zero reverse dependencies.
We can proceed with the above actions if there are no objections or
