True, but I guess the signature is a bit more obvious.

Yes: the URL to a tarball in the lookaside cache is:


So tarballs with the same name for the same package can co-exist as long as
their md5sums are different, which is a pretty safe bet.

Yes, that's the intention - see

Don't know what you mean by that. I was wondering whether it was pari-gp that
used the data packages, or the underlying library "pari" - the conflict should
refer to the part of pari that actually uses the data.

But that's derived from this package though, isn't it?
