HI All,

Thanks for the comments and suggestions.

I agree with this as is the same as I was thinking.

Then the package would be libjs-jquery56 instead of just libjs-jquery,

This, however, would mean that we would have to introduce a new source

i.e. jquery5.6 which ships libjs-jquery56.

So, in a particular case of YUI, my thoughts are:

 1. Change YUI 2.8.2r1 package to include  libjs-yui28 binary package.
Update installation directories (/usr/share/javascript/yui/2.8.2r1/*.js),
and provide a virtual package libjs-yui.

2. Eventually introduce a new source package: yui3.5, which ships
libjs-yui35, and libjs-yui as a virtual pointing to the newer library, then
drop that in the above package.

Does this make sense? Do you guys agree?

Note: Since we currently need this in Ubuntu ASAP, I'll probably introduce
the yui3.5 package in Ubuntu before it hits Debian.
