Dependancy in dovecot for mysql
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:51:14 EST
Description of problem:
Latest version of dovecot has a dependency for mysql. This should
broken out into a separate package to install the mysql option
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install or update latest version of dovecot
mysql is pulled in as a dependancy of dovecot.
dovecot installed or upgraded without mysql unless separate rpm
package is installed to include mysql support.
dovecot also has dependency on postgresql and openssl. Both packages
appear to be options just like mysql depending on how dovecot is
configured. Each of these should be broken out into optional packages.
This is true in FC2 and FC3.
This cannot be easily done without rearchitecturing of dovecot
See Bug 145241 for more details.
It appears this request can be accomodated by following the procedure
outlined in the INSTALL file of dovecot to produce loadable modules
and then packaging those loadable modules in sub-packages. I opened
bug #145371 to track this as FC-4 requirement.
