Can the provides include a version number?

I just read about it at
which says:

  So, a Provides field may not contain version numbers, and the version
  number of the concrete package which provides a particular virtual
  package will not be looked at when considering a dependency on or
  conflict with the virtual package name.

That's also where the root of the problem lies,
"gnome-desktop-environment" depends on a particular version number (or
higher), which is not (and cannot be) provided by the virtual package.

Yes, but ekiga-snapshot is not a virtual package. That's why I was not sure 100%.

So it doesn't work via "provides". Sorry for the noise.
