Subject: [gentoo-user] How to solve file collision as a package maintainer

Hi folks,

As a proxy maintainer of dev-lisp/roswell, I got this bug:

It seems that some files (e.g. /usr/bin/ros) are installed by both
dev-lisp/roswell and net-libs/librouteros.

I believe this should not be the only scenario that two packages have
file conflicts.

Could anyone please give me any clues about how to solve this kind of

Many thanks!
