      Description

      While maybe not a huge thing it's a nuisance if during minor version changes packages suddenly change.

      On a previously installed CentOS 5 server with MariaDB 5.5.23 server/client/common rpms installed I see that when trying to install the equivalent 5.5.28a packages there's a conflict with an already installed mytop package from a different source:

      [root@myhost ~]# rpm -Uvh MariaDB-5.5.28a-centos5-x86_64-{server,client,common}.rpm
      warning: MariaDB-5.5.28a-centos5-x86_64-server.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 1bb943db
      Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
      	file /usr/bin/mytop from install of MariaDB-client-5.5.28a-1.x86_64 conflicts with file from package mytop-1.4-2.el5.rf.noarch
      [root@myhost ~]# rpm -Uvh MariaDB-5.5.28a-centos5-x86_64-{server,common}.rpm
      warning: MariaDB-5.5.28a-centos5-x86_64-server.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 1bb943db
      Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
         1:MariaDB-common         ########################################### [ 50%]
         2:MariaDB-server         ########################################### [100%]
      [root@myhost ~]#

      So if you want to provide mytop for the systems you have MariaDB 5.5 on please provide this as a separate package.

      If mytop is going to be installed on MariaDB 10 versions that's fine as there's no change, but don't break upgrades of existing systems as this is a nuisance.
