Hi,

What is the best way to handle conflicts of packages? Ie: I have a
stable (release) version of software A, and I also have a bleeding edge
version of the same software (that tracks the same current stable
version). What I want to do is that if they install the CVS version (or
the release version) they can't install the other version without
un-installing the other one. I'd like to do this to make sure that they
are linked against the correct version of the libraries.

Best regards
 Michael Boman
