Description of problem:
Due to bugs #76626 and #76627 (gated obsoletes zebra and zebra obsoletes gated)
I added "zebra*" to the package exceptions list, but this had no effect and
zebra was replaced by gated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install zebra
2. add "zebra*" to the package exceptions list
3. run "up2date -u"
Actual Results: zebra is replaced by gated.
Expected Results: zebra shouldn't be replaced.
Adding also "gated*" to the package exception list prevents zebra from being
replaced, but this is only a workaround.
There is no way to know what package will obsolete in the future an other
package and put that also in the exceptions list.
I see i forgot the up2date versions: up2date-2.8.39-1.7.2 and up2date-2.8.39-1.7.3
This should be fixed in later versions by two
support for "blacklisting" bad obsoletes like the
close attention to the skip list in these cases
