Description Seth Vidal 2007-06-20 19:06:02 EDT
Description of problem:
I keep forgetting that hg == mercurial

yum will install-by-provides

so if you would add:
Provides: hg

to your package then I could do:

yum install hg and it would dtrt, rather than now where it tells me it has
nothing to do. :(

I'll happily make this edit for you, I just didn't want to step on toes.

done in cvs on f-7 and devel
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2007-06-21 02:39:46 EDT
Please make it versioned, like "Provides: hg = %{version}-%{release}".
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2007-06-21 02:44:44 EDT
why? What does it matter if it is versioned or not for this kind of provide?
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2007-06-21 02:48:37 EDT
What kind of provide?  Why wouldn't it matter?  Why wouldn't we want every
Provides that has a natural version to be versioned in packages too?
Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2007-07-01 11:00:22 EDT
fair enough -added - sorry for the long delay.
