Reporting a conflict between two packages?

There is a conflict between the python3-fiona package (Fiona is a GIS package) and fio, the disk performance measuring tool. What is the correct way of reporting this problem?

  • Open a bug against one package?
  • Open a bug against both packages?
  • Something else?

Is there testing that should catch this sort of issue before packages are released? The simplest solution would seem to be renaming Fiona’s fio command to fiona.

Perhaps you should file tickets against each package and cross-link them.
This way both maintainers will be aware of the issue.

I’m afraid the problem is difficult to detect with testing.
It requires to check files from all possible packages excluding conflicting ones.
And the result becomes obsolete on any package update.
