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:

https://bugs.gentoo.org/691754

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
problem?

Many thanks!
