Your right but then I don't know why I received broken dependency
mails for the last couple of weeks/months but not, lets say, a year
ago. The package pyicq-t for EL4 has not changed since 2009 but I
receive the broken dependency mails only since a couple of
weeks/months and not since 2009.
That's probably because broken dependency mails were only generated
intermittently up until the last few months.
This is something which confuses me:
If python-twisted-* never existed for EL4, then pyicq-t should have
never made it into EL4 because of the dependency.
True, but there's no process enforcing this other than the maintainers
checking that their packages are installable; I don't think there's an
AutoQA process for EPEL as yet.
