Typically, we don't change the version when creating replacement
packages that apply a patch. We only change the version when the
replacement package actually updates to a new version.

Thanks for taking care of this!

Pushed as 9178566954cc7f34d2d991d31df4565adad93508!

As discussed on IRC, I ended up making ‘polkit/fixed’ private, with the
version string unchanged (inherited from ‘polkit’).

We wondered whether Cuirass would build ‘polkit/fixed’ if it’s private.
Turns out it does, but this comment in (gnu ci) is still valid:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(define (all-packages)
  "Return the list of packages to build."
  (define (adjust package result)
    (cond ((package-replacement package)
           ;; XXX: If PACKAGE and its replacement have the same name/version,
           ;; then both Cuirass jobs will have the same name, which
           ;; effectively means that the second one will be ignored.  Thus,
           ;; return the replacement first.
           (cons* (package-replacement package)   ;build both
                  package
                  result))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

IOW, the replacement, and only the replacement, gets built.

The current ‘zstd’ replacement is private
<https://ci.guix.gnu.org/search?query=system%3Ax86_64-linux+spec%3Amaster+zstd>
only shows derivations for the replacement, not for the original one.
That’s okay though because the original one necessarily got built
earlier.

Thanks,
Ludo’.
