Hi Dmitry,

this is the by-effect of our unfortunate naming of PHP packages. PHP
packages now automatically generates Provides for all included

So, intentional yes, correct up-to-discussion. I can drop the Provides
quite easily, but ...

php-gettext has just few rev-deps:

Checking reverse dependencies...
# Broken Depends:
ampache: ampache-common
civicrm: civicrm-common
nagvis: nagvis
phpmyadmin: phpmyadmin
scuttle: scuttle
tt-rss: tt-rss

# Broken Build-Depends:
ampache: php-gettext
civicrm: php-gettext

So the other option might be to rename php-gettext written in PHP to
php-php-gettext (same as f.e. Fedora has) and fix those 6 packages.
Marcelo, what do you think? Does this seem viable to you?
