Description Ondrej Moriš 2018-12-10 15:01:53 UTC
Description of problem:

In RHEL-7 we deprecated openswan by libreswan. For backward compatibility we let libreswan provide openswan in rpm so that anyone installing openswan gets libreswan. Please notice that openswan was never part of RHEL-7. And hence we believe that it is now time to stop providing openswan in RHEL-8. IOW we want to remove any openswan references from libreswan specfile.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

libreswan-3.27-2.el8

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:

1. dnf repoquery --provides libreswan
2. dnf repoquery --conflicts libreswan

Actual results:

1. config(libreswan) = 3.27-2.el8
   libreswan = 3.27-2.el8
   libreswan(x86-64) = 3.27-2.el8
   openswan = 3.27-2.el8
   openswan-doc = 3.27-2.el8

2. openswan < 3.27-2.el8

Expected results:


1. config(libreswan) = 3.27-2.el8
   libreswan = 3.27-2.el8
   libreswan(x86-64) = 3.27-2.el8

2. None

Note: We can keep "conflicts" just to make sure that one cannot install openswan when libreswan is installed (but also keep in mind that openswan is not a part of distribution).
