fortunes-spam (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The package's control file defines Provides: fortune-coookie-db. Note the extra "o". The discrepancy with other fortune database packages is seen here:

$ apt-cache show fortunes-min fortunes-off fortunes-spam|egrep "Package|Provides"
Package: fortunes-min
Provides: fortune-cookie-db
Package: fortunes-off
Provides: fortune-cookie-db
Package: fortunes-spam
Provides: fortune-coookie-db

fortunes-spam is all alone in providing this virtual package:

$ apt-cache showpkg fortune-coookie-db
Package: fortune-coookie-db
 <snipped a few empty fields>
Reverse Provides:
fortunes-spam 1.2-1

$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
Release: 12.04
