These are the characteristics of two programs that show that package A and package B are two versions of the same package and not two distinct packages:

  • the same name or very similar names
  • the same vendor
  • increasing version numbers
  • package A will not be developed anymore and package B development has just started
  • existing dependencies on at least package A where also package B is allowed
