* Proposal owners:
We would make a pipewire-pulse package that provides the same features
as the pulseaudio (daemon) package.
We would only provide a drop-in replacement daemon, the pulseaudio
client libraries will remain unchanged.

The idea is that when installing pipewire-pulse, only the pulseaudio
package is removed and replaced by the
pipewire-pulse implementation.

Is it required to make the packages conflict?

The implementation that is used needs to have its service activated.

I understand the need for replacing pulseaudio package when upgrading, but it should be possible to have both installed and have the service from only one activated? Atleast for current fedora that will make it easier to test and switch between implementations.
