Description Peter Lemenkov 2008-06-04 06:45:02 EDT
When I needed to install ocamldoc I tried yum install ocamldoc first, but failed
because this program packaged as ocaml-ocamldoc.

Simple addition of Provides: ocamldoc to proper section in ocaml.spec should
solve this issue.

Yeah, I kind of agree with you in this case.

There were some very bogus provides ('lablgl', 'lablgtk') which I finally removed from
Rawhide a couple of weeks ago.  Those are libraries and the packaging policy clearly
states that the OCaml libraries are 'ocaml-foo{,-devel}'.

But for programs like ocamldoc I guess it's OK to have an extra 'Provides: ocamldoc'.

Of course, yum search ocamldoc would have worked :-)

I'll rebuild in Rawhide in a moment ...
