Description Kir Kolyshkin 2006-10-28 18:44:26 EDT
Description of problem:

%description of package "sendmail" refers to another package, "sendmail.cf". It
should refer to sendmail-cf instead, since this is the right name.

Perhaps the bug is also valid for FC6 and RHEL* -- feel free to file.

[root@sacred ~]# rpm -qi sendmail

Summary     : A widely used Mail Transport Agent (MTA).
Description :
The Sendmail program is a very widely used Mail Transport Agent (MTA).
MTAs send mail from one machine to another. Sendmail is not a client
program, which you use to read your email. Sendmail is a
behind-the-scenes program which actually moves your email over
networks or the Internet to where you want it to go.

If you ever need to reconfigure Sendmail, you will also need to have
the sendmail.cf package installed. If you need documentation on
Sendmail, you can install the sendmail-doc package.
