Package: dpkg
Severity: wishlist

Hello,

Please could you enable support for packages to provide
a specific version of a virtual package?

Like that having this tag in the control file of
an installed package:

Provides: foo (= 1.0)

would render installable packages that depend on foo (= 1.0)

Cheers,
