Re: MBF: Multi-Arch: same violations

Here is the bug template:

v v v v v
Package: $1
Severity: important
User: multiarch-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Usertags: multiarch

$1 is marked Multi-Arch: same, but fails to coinstall with itself on $2
and $3. You can find a failing installation log attached. Please
consider removing the Multi-Arch: same header or declaring the relevant
architecture-qualified Conflicts.
^ ^ ^ ^ ^

These issues will become serious once multiarch is documented in policy.
I intend to create the bug reports in a week. Any objections?

I think you should mention the third option of fixing the conflict
in the bug template - I suspect that at least in some cases these
might simply be bugs in the packaging that, when fixed, would lead
to the situation where the corresponding package could remain
M-A: same without having to specify any Conflicts.
