[PKG-Openstack-devel] Bug#812452: python-openstackclient-doc: fails to upgrade from 'sid' - trying to overwrite /usr/share/doc-base/python-openstackclient

Package: python-openstackclient-doc
Version: 2.0.0-2
Severity: serious
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package fails to upgrade from
'sid' to 'experimental'.
It installed fine in 'sid', then the upgrade to 'experimental' fails
because it tries to overwrite other packages files without declaring a
Breaks+Replaces relation.
