Nothing obsoletes strigi-libs (installed by default in Fedora 24 KDE)
Last modified: 2017-10-22 09:14:24 EDT
A default Fedora 24 KDE install includes strigi-libs - not sure why, but probably one of these deps:
[adamw@adam fedora-comps (master)]$ sudo dnf repoquery --releasever 24 --whatrequires strigi-libs

strigi was orphaned and retired last July, and now when you try and upgrade from F24 to Rawhide without --allowerasing , it fails because strigi-libs' dependencies are no longer satisfied (libexiv2.so.14).
--allowerasing will work around this, but it can be dangerous (can allow DNF to remove other packages that the user doesn't *want* to remove) and I believe retired packages should be properly obsoleted.
I'd suggest this could be obsoleted by, say, plasma-workspace, or some baloo package that will always be included in KDE, or if all else fails, by fedora-obsolete-packages.
I think kdelibs can obsolete it, it is what was dragging in strigi-libs to begin with and is now being built without Strigi.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.
