Is that a provisional issue?

I mean, IMHO there's no point in maintaining this two releases of the same
thing/pkg in different repositories, unless you name them different to be
seleccted as appropiate (not exclude tag involved).

If so, how many pkgs are going to be like this way? It seems to me it could be a
nightmare, but this is only my opinion. Hints allowed.

TIA for your time,
