12 It's not exactly clear to me what's so hard to understand here. You had gvim
13 and vim-core in your package.keywords in effect requesting version 7.0.201 of
14 both of those. You didn't have vim in package.keywords in effect requesting
15 7.0.174 of that. vim-7.0.174 depends on vim-core-7.0.174 which cannot coexist
16 with vim-core-7.0.201 as it isn't slotted.
18 That leaves two possible solutions. 1) Removing gvim and vim-core from
19 package.keywords as you seem to have done. 2) Adding vim to package.keywords.
21 PS: Please don't top-post.
