Package: php4-cli
Severity: important


While trying to install php4-cli on my box (in coordination with CRON to generate daily stats), I encountered this problem:

Les paquets suivants contiennent des dépendances non satisfaites :
  php4-cli: Dépend: php4-common (= 6:4.4.4-8+etch6) mais 6:4.4.4-9+lenny1 devra être installé
E: Paquets défectueux

(translated from French to English, might not be the exact wording)

The follow package has unresolved dependencies:
  php4-cli: Depends on: php4-common (= 6:4.4.4-8+etch6) but 6:4.4.4-9+lenny1 is supposed to be installed
E: Erroneous package

Latest news show:

# [2008-07-26] Accepted 6:4.4.4-8+etch6 in stable-security (low) (Sean Finney)
# [2008-05-27] Accepted 6:4.4.4-8+etch6 in stable-security (low) (Sean Finney)
# [2008-04-26] Removed 6:4.4.4-9+lenny1 from testing-proposed-updates (Thomas Viehmann)

Shouldn't be php4-cli be updated with 6:4.4.4-8+etch6 instead of the now obsolete  6:4.4.4-9+lenny1?
