I just wanted to remind folks that FESCo would really like for us to
finish up guidelines for conflicts (and Conflicts:) soon.  Not much
has happened to the draft since it was presented.

The discussion I actually recall revolved around the suggestions in
the "Conflicting Files" section:

 man pages should probably go into different "sections" (like
 Coin2-devel and Inventor-devel) instead of being renamed.

 I recall objection to using "alternatives" for conflicting binaries.

There's probably plenty I don't recall, however.  We really should try
to finish this up and present it to the various committees next week.
