Bug Description

The recent upload of quassel 0.9.2-0ubuntu2 appears to have made the quassel-client-qt4 package unupgradable:

lfaraone@cobalt:~$ sudo aptitude dist-upgrade
The following packages will be upgraded:
  quassel-client-qt4 quassel-data{b} quassel-qt4-data{b}
3 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 1,892 kB of archives. After unpacking 0 B will be used.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 quassel-qt4-data : Conflicts: quassel-data but 0.9.2-0ubuntu2 is to be installed.
 quassel-data : Conflicts: quassel-qt4-data but 0.9.2-0ubuntu2 is to be installed.

This is because quassel-client-qt4 Depends: quassel-data and Recommends: quassel-qt4-data. You can upgrade the packages by choosing to leave the Recommends: unsatisfied, but that isn't ideal.

The changelog of the most recent upload indicates:
  * Make quassel-data and quassel-qt4-data conflict as they ship common files.

However, my `dpkg -L` of each package doesn't seem to indicate any common **files** are shipped, just common **directories**, which shouldn't be a problem.

Thus I think we should drop the Conflicts:.

This bug was fixed in the package quassel - 0.9.2-0ubuntu3

quassel (0.9.2-0ubuntu3) trusty; urgency=low

  * Revert addition of conflict relations between quassel-data and
    quassel-qt4-data, as the packages are usually installed at the same time
    and do not ship common files. (LP: #1257592)
