There are more. Search bugzilla for "conflicts". I've had the filing of bz
tickets semi-automated till I lost the work-in-progress ticket tracking
script which I had stored on a non-backuped-machine. At least the
following conflicts appear to be new compared with my last log:

  R-Matrix  conflicts with  R-core
  R-Matrix-devel  conflict with  R-core
  astronomy-backgrounds  conflicts with  *-backgrounds*  (in bugzilla)
  globus-common-progs  conflicts with  grid-packaging-tools  (in bugzilla)

The script I use to check a set of repositories is old and unfinished:

Working on such scripts and enhancing them is only fun if the filed
tickets are dealt with and are not ignored.
