Description Jeff Pitman 2005-01-09 23:29:08 EST
Obsoletes: foo >= 1.0.1 
Obsoletes: foo < 1.1 
This would Obsolete all versions of 1.0.1 to 1.1 exclusive.  Currently, one 
must manually entire all possible existing versions to obsolete, which can be 
cumbersome to deal with.

This is a couple of hours work and looks to be useful, permitting
a range of EVR to be removed.

Sign off from the python heads for the semnatic change please.

And rather than opening another bug, another RFE:

I think Obsoletes: should become persistent, treated as
Conflicts: after install.
