Please delete superseded source and binary packages indicator-sensors_0.1.orig.tar.gz from https://launchpad.net/~baltix-members/+archive/ PPA

Asked by Mantas Kriaučiūnas on 2012-01-20

I can't delete superseded source and binary packages indicator-sensors_0.1.orig.tar.gz from our Launchpad PPA (https://launchpad.net/~baltix-members) - version. 0.1-1~natty6 package is visible in our PPA, see:

https://launchpad.net/~baltix-members/+archive/ppa/+packages?field.name_filter=indicator-sensor&field.status_filter=&field.series_filter=natty

But indicator-sensors version 0.1-1~natty6 isn't visible through delete function:

https://launchpad.net/~baltix-members/+archive/ppa/+delete-packages?field.name_filter=indicator-sensor&field.status_filter=&field.series_filter=natty

Because of this I can't copy new release of indicator-sensors from official indicator-sensors PPA:

https://launchpad.net/~alexmurray/+archive/indicator-sensors/+copy-packages?field.name_filter=&field.status_filter=published

I always get this error:

The following source cannot be copied:
    indicator-sensors 0.1-1 in oneiric (indicator-sensors_0.1.orig.tar.gz already exists in destination archive with different contents.)

It's not possible to have two files with the same name and different contents in a PPA, even if one of them is no longer published. You need to rename the file.

So, there are no way to delete incorrectly named https://launchpad.net/~baltix-members/+archive/ppa/+files/indicator-sensors_0.1.orig.tar.gz file from PPA?

I think you want to change the version to indicator-sensors 0.1+baltix0.orig.tar.gz and set the package version in the debian/changelog 0.1+baltix0 so that is the baltix version of 0.1.

Can you help with this problem?
