Package: libedataserverui-3.0-dev
Version: 3.2.2-3
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 'sid' fails
because it tries to overwrite files that are owned by other packages
without declaring a Breaks/Replaces relation.

See policy 7.6 at

This problem is exposed during the upgrade of the 'evolution-dev'
package, not by upgrading only the buggy package itself.
In order to have piuparts automatically track this problem, I'll mark
this bug as Affects/Found in the exposing package(s), too.
