Description of problem:
both db1-1.85-8 and gnome-libs-220.127.116.11.90-20 both contain
Either gnome-libs probably shouldn't provide these files since if you obsolete
db1 then you can't have db1-devel installed.
See explanation on #73138 - do we need an explicit Conflicts? The fact that the
files conflict should be enough right...
db1-devel isn't intended to be installable; the point of moving db1 into
gnome-libs was to kill any compilation vs. db1.
I think adding an explicit conflict is the least that should be done. Just
leaving conflicting files seems rude. Do I have to crosscheck every file from
every package just to decide what to install? Why not just leave db1 as a
separate package? Clearly it is required by gnome-libs otherwise it wouldn't be
there. Why hide that fact?
