[aur-general] Conflicting contents of different packages

Hi guys,

I maintain a package dex-editor-git in the AUR. It was recently reported to me that it conflicts with a package named dex present in the community repository.


The conflicting files are /usr/bin/dex and /usr/share/man/man1/dex.1.gz

Both packages are unrelated so I believe putting *dex* in the conflicts array isn't right.

Can anyone suggest me a way to handle this, short of renaming the files?
