Since 'aptitude install ekiga-snapshot' removes ekiga,

As far as I'm concerned, this means that ekiga-snapshot is NOT

I think that the problem is that the version number for ekiga-snapshot
is 0-20081220-1 which is less than 2.0.12. Perhaps if the version number
were changed to something greater that 2.0.12 (eg, 3-20081220-1) then
the problem would go away.

Increasing the version of ekiga-snapshot does not work.

There are two solutions:
- either stay as we are now. Note that only gnome-desktop-environment is removed (+old pwlwib/opal), not 47 packages!! - or do not use ekiga-snapshot anymore, but ekiga (while ptlib and opal are still named -snapshot, to avoid soname problems). Note that this will not be intrusive or conflict with debian package, because the version will be carefully chosen.

What do people prefer??

Perhaps 1:2008blah... would work ?

I tried 3-... and installed it. When I try to install g-d-e, it still wants to remove ekiga-snapshot and install ekiga etc. So here I was almost sure it does not work.

I checked on debian guidelines or something like that, it says more or less that versioning does not work for provide, but it was not so clear to me.

Finally, I was on chat and their answer is in my previous e-mail.
