Package: libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-dev
Version: 1.6.1-5
Severity: serious
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package fails to upgrade from
It installed fine in 'squeeze', then the upgrade to 'wheezy' fails
because it tries to overwrite other packages files without declaring a
replaces relation.

See policy 7.6 at

>From the attached log (scroll to the bottom...):

  Selecting previously unselected package libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-dev.
  Unpacking libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-dev (from .../libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-dev_1.6.1-5+b1_amd64.deb) ...
  dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-dev_1.6.1-5+b1_amd64.deb (--unpack):
   trying to overwrite '/usr/share/gir-1.0/JSCore-1.0.gir', which is also in package libwebkit-dev 1.2.7-0+squeeze1

This bug affects the piuparts tests of several other packages. I'll set
  affects ... otherpackage  and
  found ... otherpackage/version
on this bug when they are discovered. With this tagging piuparts-analyze
can detect them and move the failed logs to the bugged category.
