Bug Description

Debian added pidgin-mbpurple as pidgin-microblog, so we need to have a transitional package for Lucid for pidgin-microblog and drop pidgin-mbpurple from the archive.

Package built here:
https://launchpad.net/~micahg/+archive/patch-test/+packages

Properly replaces pidgin-mbpurple now.

Thanks for your report.

Confirmed in lucid. pidgin-microblog and pidgin-mbpurple should conflict with each other.

Don't hesitate to submit any new bug.

They should not conflict, but rather the Ubuntu pidgin-mbpurple should be replaced with the debian pidgin-microblog and add a transitional package.

pidgin-mbpurple should be dropped and replaced with debian's pidgin-microblog

I'll upload it with two small changes (diff attached):
* Add ${misc:Depends} to the transitional package
* Change description of transitional package. The short description should not take more than a line and the long description was missing.

    - Add Replaces/Breaks on last version of pidgin-mbpurple in archive
  * Add pidgin-microblog.install while transitional package exists
