Description Jeff Pitman 2004-08-28 09:32:27 EDT
Description of problem: 
Sometimes it is difficult to get a set of possible packages setup for 
Obsoletes.  One way to make things easier is to be able to Obsolete a 
common file or directory shared among these sets of packages. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
Example Tag: 
Obsoletes: /usr/lib/python2.3 
Actual results: 
error: line 17: File name not permitted: 
Obsoletes: /usr/lib/python2.3 
Expected results: 
Successful SPEC compile with filename or directory obsoletes.
