Description of problem:

From rpmdiff result
https://errata.devel.redhat.com/rpmdiff/show/38074.?result_id=383730 :

Subpackage cups-lpd on i386 ppc s390 consumes library(s) libcups.so.2 from subpackage cups-libs but does not have explicit package version requirement cups-libs = 1.3.7-8.el5_3.5<br/>Please add Requires: cups-libs = %{version}-%{release} to cups-lpd in the specfile to avoid the need to test interoperability between the various combinations of old and new subpackages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2009-06-02 03:42:22 EDT
There isn't actually any problem here because:

  cups-lpd requires cups = %{version}-%{release}
  cups requires cups-libs = %{version}-%{release}

so as a result cups-lpd already requires cups-libs = %{version}-%{release} transitively through the main package.

So the question is whether we want to make this explicit in order to pacify rpmdiff.
Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2009-10-12 13:00:58 EDT
Transitive requirement resolving should be ok, we rely on it in many other forms throughout the distribution.

The fix would be easy, but i'm unsure if it is really required.

Thanks & regards, Phil
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2009-10-27 13:01:17 EDT
It's not required.
