With you're proposal, I think switching from one alternative implementation to another one won't work. For example switching from tschack to jackd3 would break with undeclared file conflicts AFAIUI. And my understanding of this whole hickhack was to allow users to switch jack implementations without having to recompile packages.

If I understand your concern correctly, it is easily handled using "Replaces:".

I deliberately did not go into such details, as I can easily imagine lots of details being forgotten, but cannot imagine it eventually done right.

In other words: Do you only fear that I forgot some details, or do you fear that it is impossible to implement at all like I drafted, even with carefully composed package relations?


(If it works) my idea would allow this; and without having each and every implementation to declare conflicts against every existing other implementation.

Sorry, I lost track: Could you please, in a differently named subthread, repeat your proposal?


If I get no response on this by sunday, and noone else objects, I will go ahead with my proposed plan.

Please do respond - I realy do want input on this, and may very well have missed something obvious to oters that make the plan not work out at all.

Also, please do speak up if anyone feels they made earlier proposals still valid to compare against. I sincerely apologize if missing out on them - I lost track of it in these discussions, and did not find/take the time to go through the whole thread to isolate them.

Kind regards,

 - Jonas
