Description Seth Vidal 2007-06-20 23:06:02 UTC
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 06:39:46 UTC
Please make it versioned, like "Provides: hg = %{version}-%{release}".

Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2007-06-21 06:44:44 UTC
why? What does it matter if it is versioned or not for this kind of provide?

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2007-06-21 06:48:37 UTC
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?

fair enough -added - sorry for the long delay.
