--- Begin Message ---Package: node-backbone Version: 0.5.3-3 Severity: serious User: trei...@debian.org Usertags: edos-file-overwrite Architecture: amd64 Distribution: wheezy->sid (partial) upgrade Hi, automatic installation tests of packages that share a file and at the same time do not conflict by their package dependency relationships has detected the following problem: Selecting previously unselected package libjs-backbone. Unpacking libjs-backbone (from .../libjs-backbone_0.5.3-2+deb7u1_all.deb) ... Setting up libjs-underscore (1.1.6-1+deb7u1) ... Setting up libjs-backbone (0.5.3-2+deb7u1) ... Selecting previously unselected package node-backbone. Unpacking node-backbone (from .../node-backbone_0.9.2-2_all.deb) ... dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/node-backbone_0.9.2-2_all.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/nodejs/backbone.js', which is also in package libjs-backbone 0.5.3-2+deb7u1 This is a serious bug as it makes installation/upgrade fail, and violates sections 7.6.1 and 10.1 of the policy. As this problem can be demonstrated during partial upgrades from wheezy to sid (but not within wheezy or sid itself), this indicates a missing or insufficiently versioned Replaces+Breaks relationship. But since this particular upgrade ordering is not forbidden by any dependency relationship, it is possible that apt (or $PACKAGE_MANAGER) will use this erroneus path on wheezy->sid upgrades. Here is a list of files that are known to be shared by both packages (according to the Contents files for wheezy and sid on amd64, which may be slightly out of sync): usr/lib/nodejs/backbone.js node-backbone was split from libjs-backbone in 0.5.3-3 The following relationships are currently defined: Package: node-backbone Depends: libjs-backbone Conflicts: n/a Breaks: n/a Replaces: n/a The following relationships should be added for a clean takeover of these files (http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-relationships.html#s-replaces): Package: node-backbone Breaks: libjs-backbone (<< 0.5.3-3) Replaces: libjs-backbone (<< 0.5.3-3) Cheers, Andreas PS: for more information about the detection of file overwrite errors of this kind see http://edos.debian.net/file-overwrites/.
