Description of problem:
In order to support https queries, p-F-R needs p-C-S. It will work
without (and throw an error message if https is tried, stating that
p-C-S is needed). Since p-C-S is rather small, p-F-R ought to pull it in.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install p-F-R (without p-C-S)
2. Try a https request
Actual Results: Error message stating that p-C-S is needed
Expected Results: Users should not have to worry about this.
Realistically, if we were to add a requirement on perl-Crypt-SSLeay, it would be to perl-
libwww-perl (which contains the http routines Frontier uses). However, both modules
function sufficiently well without the added requirement to not qualify as absolutely
requiring ssl functionality. If RPM supported a 'suggests' capability, I would add it there,
but adding a hard dependency when the module in question functions properly without it
is not the right choice.
