I would consider it a package rename, nail -> mailx, thus the nail changelog
should be preserved.
Would it have been more appropriate to just have nail obsolete mailx? What
is the actual upstream name?
mailx could be kept in fedora, nail doesn't really obsolete it, like a
rename do. I think that the issue here is that a virtual provide should
be used for mail (or a file provide like /bin/mail) such that the
package providing mail can change in time.
