[pkg-go] Bug#851818: golang-glide: Collision in binary vs source package namespaces

Source: golang-glide
Version: 0.12.3-1
Severity: important


This source package generates a binary package named glide. But there
was already a source package in the archive named glide. This creates
great confusion in our infrastructure. For starters the bugs
previously assigned to the glide source package are now "owned" by the
glide binary package. :( Notifications and similar are now sent to both
source and binary glide packages.

Although the namespaces are in principle somewhat independent, creating
cross-collisions has been frowned upon for a long time. So I'd like to
ask that you rename the glide binary package to something else.
