to be clear about the version constraints, that is not itself a
bug - we add these specifically to avoid a common bug, whereby
some parabola package would become broken by an upgraded arch

the version constraint allows the program to continue functioning
as expected, rather than becoming broken routinely; and the
pacman error serves as a warning, that the package needs to be

anytime that pacman gives an error message, it is almost always
worthy of a bug report - in the case of 'poppler' and 'icu'
dependents, the bug reports are a matter of routine; and there
are permanent tickets for tracking them
