Package: bat
Version: 0.21.0-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Apparently because of an executable conflict in another package 'bat' was
renamed 'batcat' ater discussions in #932634.

Apt-file, lintian conflict file and package description still mention this

But the situation changed:

  - at least for version 0.21.0-2, I don't have any 'batcat' executable
installed, and 'bat' is in /usr/bin.
  - The executable creation date to 10th july and the issue was closed in july

The issue is with the description of the package and with interactions with
other projects.
There is no mention in the changelog.

Some project were looking for 'batcat' as a requirement for debian.
