Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts.
It seems to me you asked a reasonable question:
> Why should frei0r-plugins break itself?
Through no fault of your own, when I filed the bug
1.) was unaware that a source package named
just "frei0r" existed, and
2.) failed to mention I assumed
a.) the "Breaks" header referred to a
non-existent package, and
b.) what the original author meant was to say
frei0r-plugins broke an *earlier version*
You were right!
I was wrong!
But, but, but, I now find myself wondering if
maybe the "Breaks:" header should just be removed.
a.) it doesn't make sense for a package to
break itself, then maybe
b.) it also doesn't make sense for a package
to break its own source package.
And I don't have a strong preference.
Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.
I find I often benefit from other peoples' point
Now seems to be one of those times!
Time is the fire in which we all burn.
