Description Nerijus Baliūnas 2007-06-21 21:29:59 EDT
I see in changelog:
* Apr 13 2005 Thomas Woerner <twoerner@redhat.com> 8.13.4-1
- new version 8.13.4
- added requires for the sendmail base package in sendmail-cf, sendmail-devel
  and sendmail-doc

Why was it done? I was able to install sendmail-devel package w/o installing
sendmail in RHEL 4. I need sendmail-devel because it includes libmilter, and I
use postfix with milters. I don't see why sendmail-cf and sendmail-doc should
require sendmail base package too.
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2007-07-24 11:34:37 EDT
This has been done to be consistent to other devel and doc packages. There
should not be a package without any dependency. There were also requests to add
these dependencies. You can install sendmail without breaking your postfix

Closing as not a bug.
