[Bug 1540135] Re: Make this metapackage conflict with kaccounts-providers
Looks like we got a better solution. Please follow bug 1451728, I'm
closing this one as we won't make the packages conflict.

Make this metapackage conflict with kaccounts-providers
Status in account-plugins package in Ubuntu:
Anyone that tries to install Kubuntu-meta, or from Kubuntu tries to
install Ubuntu-desktop, will hit conflicts with accounts-sso providers
in /usr/share/accounts/providers (and possibly in service files in the
future). As a result, many automatic bugs are being generated on both
packages relating to this conflict in both directions, below are the
most popular ones for each:
kaccounts-providers is imported from Debian directly without
repackaging and Debian does not package the Ubuntu account-plugins
anywhere. Upstream KDE is being forced to break accounts-sso standards
and impose systemwide envvars to work around that this package should
conflict with KDE's: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=347219
Either Ubuntu / Kubuntu should be amending the Debian package to make
it conflict with these plugin packages when importing it, or the
psmteam should make this package conflict with kaccounts-providers.
The later would be less work, since account-plugins is only packaged
in Ubuntu for Unity.
This change is necessary in Wily and beyond since those are the
releases shipping kaccounts-providers.
