Thinking about this done more, if used to be that one could start from a 5.3 release image, change the updated url to trunk, abc update to a current trunk. If there was a successor version to the 6.0 release ReleaseBuilder package version in trunk, and perhaps configuration to force if you be loaded, then the conflict could be avoided. One would start from a 6.0 release image, change the update url to trunk, and update. Things would continue to work as before.
