Description Doncho N. Gunchev 2007-10-04 17:30:55 EDT
Description of problem:
eclipse-egit requires git, git requires all git-* and *-git packages and one 
of them is emacs-git. emacs-git in turn requires emacs-common, which eats more 
than 80 megabytes.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install eclipse-egit
Actual results:
dependencies end up requiring emacs-common (>80 megabytes most users don't 

Expected results:
emacs stuff should not be installed.

Additional info:
Ray Strode has suggested that maybe eclipse-egit should require git-core, so 
I'm filling this here (not against git). I'm not certain which is the best 
solution, so I leave it up to you to decide :-)

Hi, thanks for the bug report. I changed the requirement from git to git-core.
Cheers, Ben
