Re: Are conflicts in debuginfo packages OK?

Right, that's a complication.  (It could be handled by suffixing the
arch in the source-tree-name part.)

Considering that the same files are also linked into multilib-safe
collision-free /usr/lib/debug/.build-id files, where debuggers already
know to look for them, the .../usr/bin* ones could be deprecated.  Or
the conflicting /bin files could be moved to a separate non-library
subpackage.


I hope it is obvious that it would be appropriate to be able to debug
anything installed from the normal repositories.  That the status quo
is not quite up to the job (in the case of some multilib libraries) is
a bug.
