That's not why they conflict. It's because jre7 explicitly has
java-runtime=7 as a conflict (among others). 'conflicts' has nothing to
do with 'provides'.

And how will that help?

It seems that a package is updated and the newer version explicitly
depends on jre7-openjdk. This is probably a packaging error (although
after a quick glance at the repos, I cannot find any such package).
