Description of problem:
PLEASE FIX THE VERSION ABOVE SO IT APPLIES TO THE BRANCH THAT IS TO BE
FROZEN ON MAY 7TH.
The new (January 2004) Cyrus-IMAPd version 2.2.3 has added a
"fetchnews" program and manual page that were not part of previous
versions such as 2.1.16.
This name, "fetchnews", has been in use by the Leafnode package since
leafnode 1.9.3, released in July 1999, and causes a problem for
distributors as not two manual pages with the same name can be installed.
I have sent a mail to the Cyrus upstream maintainer and asked them to
change the name, I have offered to change the name in leafnode as well
in exchange after the next major leafnode release.
Related bug reports:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install cyrus-imapd RPM
2. Install leafnode RPM
Actual Results: the 2nd RPM to be installed will report a conflict
Expected Results: cyrus-imapd should not have used the name fetchnews :-)
The result of the negotiations will appear in the bugzilla.fedora.us
and FreeBSD bug data bases first.
latest fc2 has renamed fetchnews to cyrfetchnews
