Allan, I still don't know how I can solve the above mentioned problem.
As you see I versioned the provides and required the version in this
case and it doesn't help.
As I see it I have the same problem here as Laurie Clark-Michalek.
I believe if this was in AUR and I tried to download calf-git through
yaourt it would try to install lash despite lash-git being installed
