      Description

      Debian and Ubuntu already have a package named "tachyon":

      https://packages.debian.org/sid/tachyon

      Parallel/Multiprocessor Ray Tracing Software

      http://jedi.ks.uiuc.edu/~johns/raytracer/

      which has been in Debian since 2008, and apparently was started in 1994.

      Because this package has a higher version number (0.99~b2+dfsg-0.4) it will always take precedence to the Bigtop "tachyon" package, and on upgrades this will cause chaos.

      Maybe the package should be named tachyon-java or apache-tachyon instead to avoid upgrade problems?
