I previously had wesnoth and wesnoth-music installed (my games
metapackage depended on both, since wesnoth didn't have a dependency
chain to wesnoth-music, just a recommendation).
Now, wesnoth-music no longer exists, and wesnoth became a metapackage.
As a result, I don't have wesnoth-1.8-music installed. Furthermore, I
still have the old wesnoth-music package from 1.6 installed.
Please consider providing a wesnoth-music metapackage, for several
- To provide an upgrade path for people who had it installed.
- To ensure that the old package does not remain installed.
- To provide an unversioned package name for metapackages like mine to
depend on, to avoid needing to update them for every new version of
