[Python-modules-team] Bug#883137: backblaze-b2: /usr/bin/b2 already provided by libboost1.XX-tools-dev

Package: backblaze-b2
Version: 1.0.0-1
Severity: serious
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package failed to install
because it tries to overwrite other packages files.

Since I expect these two binaries to be unrelated, using Breaks+Replaces
or Conflicts would be an *incorrect*  solution. The new package will have
to rename its binary to avoid this conflict.
