Repo hell?
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=83939

Another example of situation, that shouldn't occur in any case - unrelated package uploaded to community repos, that cause overwrite over crucial SSU package. And, despite few initial comments, it *is* actually harmful.

Sure, this mess is mainly due to lack of common sense on uploader's side (which he has history for...), but isn't it also repo bug? If yes, Community OBS is going to fix that, yep?

What do You think, does it require intervention from repositories maintainer (removing FCKD package)? We don't want to end up with plentora of reboot-looping devices...

BTW, before someone reply that "it's -devel and usual warnings apply" - yes, I agree, but it's not the point here. Problem is, that it got same name convention as other thing from crucial SSU repo, causing overwrite of the latter. Shouldn't happen.

Definitely. The build log[1] shows that the builder correctly detected
the conflict and aborted the armel build, but somehow a binary package
ended up in the repository anyway[2]. Could you file a bug report under
<https://bugs.maemo.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=maemo.org+Website>?
