Bug#461651: loosing dependencies
Package: fortunes
Version: 1:1.99.1-3

Currently, the `fortunes' package depends on either
`fortune-mod' or `fortune-min':

$ apt-cache show fortunes
Package: fortunes
Source: fortune-mod
Version: 1:1.99.1-3
Provides: fortune-cookie-db
Depends: fortune-mod (>= 9708-12), fortunes-min

It probably doesn't make sense, provided that the fortune files
may as well be read by, e. g., M-x fortune in Emacs, or even by

Could this dependency be relaxed, please?

The following line may be added as well, if it's necessary:

Conflicts: fortune-mod (<< 9708-12)
