Last modified: 2009-04-03 05:45:02 EDT
Description of problem:
spec file doesn't provide "provides" field, other packages trying to installing with old name are failing due to this
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.try installing smc-fonts-meera it will say package does not exist
it should still install smc-meera-fonts package
fixed in smc-fonts-04.1-6
i think it will be in tomorrow's rawhide
While you certainly have the option as maintainer to add Provides, you should note that other fedora font packages did not add them and the maintainers of packages depending on them just fixed their deps.
Which is the correct long-term fix anyway.
I think we should keep it till f13 probably
