Package: java-package
Version: 0.52
Severity: normal


during the 0.52 cycle the package names were changed from (i.e.)




While I generally think the new names are cleaner the old package is not
replaced by the new package automatically.

I can think of two ways for this to happen.

a) add appropriate Breaks+Replaces to the generated package
b) document a way to build transitional packages

I have attached our local way of doing b) here. Probably not perfect,
but seems to do the job.
