Followup-For: Bug #425120
The command time is provided by two packages:
The policy (section 10.1) states that:
> Two different packages must not install programs with different
> functionality but with the same filenames. (The case of two programs
> having the same functionality but different implementations is
> handled via "alternatives" or the "Conflicts" mechanism. See
> Maintainer Scripts, Section 3.9 and Conflicting binary packages
> - Conflicts, Section 7.4 respectively.)
> If this case happens, one of the programs must be renamed.
Therefore, I assume this bug's severity should be serious, so it is an
RC bug and it is candidate for a freeze exception.
BTW, Thank you for maintaining VDR, which I am using a system at home.
