Comment 1 John Dennis 2004-11-12 14:26:13 EST
Thank you for your bug report.

You're right, that RPM does not have the link, but I can't explain
why. The link creation is in the spec file. If I build the rpm locally
the link is in the rpm. If I rebuild the rpm in the official build
system the link is in the rpm. I can't explain why that particular rpm
was missing the link, nor is it reproducible :-(

I'm going to close this bug as won't fix, not because I don't think
its important, but because I don't know what there is to fix. Unless
the official build system flakes out again is some weird way the link
should be in all future rpms. 

FWIW, cyrus-imap*2.2.6-2.FC3.8 is in rawhide, is otherwise identical
to 2.2.6-2.FC3.6 and has the link.
