How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

mysql is pulled in as a dependancy of dovecot.

Expected results:

dovecot installed or upgraded without mysql unless separate rpm 
package is installed to include mysql support.

Additional info:

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.
Comment 2 Scot Harris 2005-01-15 12:01:40 EST
This is true in FC2 and FC3.
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-01-15 18:15:36 EST
This cannot be easily done without rearchitecturing of dovecot
upstream.  Sorry.
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-01-15 18:51:37 EST
See Bug 145241 for more details.
Comment 5 John Dennis 2005-01-17 15:49:37 EST
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.
