So if I want package X on a porterbox, and another Debian porter wants
package Y, and they conflict because of poorly chosen command names,
the two of us should coordinate so that we can send a suitable series
of each-other-reverting updates to the DSA ansible repo and thereby
arrange to both do our work, albeit interleaved rather than
simultaneously ?
