I think that the problem is that the version number for ekiga-snapshot
is 0-20081220-1 which is less than 2.0.12. Perhaps if the version number
were changed to something greater that 2.0.12 (eg, 3-20081220-1) then
the problem would go away.
Increasing the version of ekiga-snapshot does not work.
There are two solutions:
- either stay as we are now. Note that only gnome-desktop-environment
is removed (+old pwlwib/opal), not 47 packages!!
- or do not use ekiga-snapshot anymore, but ekiga (while ptlib and opal
are still named -snapshot, to avoid soname problems). Note that this
will not be intrusive or conflict with debian package, because the
version will be carefully chosen.
What do people prefer??
