Please tell me if I understand how it works.
If I want to develop a package MyPackage wihch depends on AnotherPackage and
there are packagesAnotherPackage AnotherPackage1.0 AnotherPackage2.0:
- if I want to depend on >=1 I just depend on AnotherPackage
- if I want to dependo on <=1 I must depend on AnotherPackage1.0
But in debian & ubunto AnotherPackage sometimes requires AnotherPackage1.0
(for example mysql installs mysql 4.0 not 4.1) and sometimes
AnotherPackage2.0 (like for python).
There should be a rule preventing confusion so that packages that just want
mysql or python must not depend on version number with <=, if they want to
depend on something with <= they should depend on the right vesion.
