Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144632
RFE: Obsoletes to include ranges like Provides
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:58 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.
Poked appropriate lists
Nothing heard, over a year.
