Package: mplayer
Version: 2:1.3.0-1
Followup-For: Bug #823589
User: ubuntu-devel at lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu yakkety ubuntu-patch

In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to achieve the following:

  * Add mplayer2 transitional package to fix upgrades (LP: #1580268)

So, I noticed after fixing this in Ubuntu that you fixed it in Debian
git 48 hours ago.  Your fix is, however, incomplete (notice the extra
parts of my diff that aren't included in your commit, where I version
the Replaces, and change the Conflict to a versioned Breaks).

It would be lovely if you swapped in my fix for yours (at least the
missing bits).
