Now, what is the correct dependency declaration?


Package: bacula-director-mysql
Conflicts: bacula-director, bacula-director-common (<= 7.4.3+dfsg-2~)



Package: bacula-director-mysql
Replaces: bacula-director-common (<= 7.4.3+dfsg-3)
Breaks: bacula-director-common (<= 7.4.3+dfsg-3)

Package: bacula-director-common
Depends: bacula-director-mysql (>= 7.4.3+dfsg-3) |
bacula-director-sqlite3 (>= 7.4.3+dfsg-3) | bacula-director-pgsql (>=

Solution (b) would be the one the policy shows in 7.6.1 "Overwriting
files in other packages". But we don't totally replace
bacula-director-common, we just take over one file.

This is a bit ouside of my packaging experience until now, so I am not
really sure what exactly to do (without further embarrasing myself).
