I think I forgot to mention one limitation of the upgrade hack:
bacula has several database backends - however these are not
pluggable (e.g. dlopen/so file). Therefore we have packages like
bacula-directory-sqlite and bacula-director-mysql. Currently you can
have both installed in parallel but use just one of them (that's
where the alternatives come into play).
With the upgrade hack, the different db specific packages will
conflict with each other. If a user has such a configuration he can
not upgrade without removing one of the packages before.
That sounds like something to note to epel-announce when the package is
pushed out to stable. (ie, why it's happening and what to do to get it
The hack seems fine to me... but I also think it should just stay
around in EPEL5 after it lands. You can get rid of it for RHEL6.
