Bug Description

The "node" package is Amateur Packet Radio Node program, as described on
As I could see, it isn't related in any ways to node.js (the nodejs package).
But installing "node" via apt-get just removes nodejs and all related things for no reason o_o.

There is a debate going on upstream about how to handle this conflict, as node.js and node share the same binary name, which is why they are conflicting. I have added a watch for the Debian bug.
