Bug#959920: systemctl,elogind: No more co-installable

Package: systemctl,elogind
Severity: important
Version: systemctl/1.4.4181-1 elogind/241.3-1+debian3


since the upload of systemctl/1.4.4181-1, systemctl "Provides: systemd"
which IMO is generally a good thing.

But since elogin "Conflicts" with systemd, these both tools, which
provide systemd replacements are no more co-installable — which is a bad

I currently don't see a satisfying solution for that, but it would be
nice if both package maintainers could come up with a solution which
still makes sure, elogind and systemd are not installed in parallel, but
systemctl and elogind can be continued to be installed together.
