I don't think it requires provides/obsoletes, as a simple version
make this package newer than the other one, and replace it properly.
A simple version check would update the package if the name remained the same,
but that's not the case here. What used to be rabbitvcs is now rabbitvcs-core.
If someone installed rabbitvcs + rabbitvcs-nautilus from upstream page and now
updates to the newer version in Fedora repos, the following will happen:
1) rabbitvcs package has no update so it will stay on the upstream version
2) rabbitvcs-nautilus will be updated
3) rabbitvcs-nautilus will pull in rabbitvcs-core
4) yum transaction check will fail because files from old rabbitvcs upstream
package and rabbitvcs-core from Fedora repos will conflict.
Proper way to fix it is by adding Obsoletes to rabbitvcs-core, but the question
is if you want to preserve clean upgrade path from upstream packages or not.
I removed the unresolved dependency for rabbitvcs. It resolved here
wasn't properly removing and installing the rpms. I'll get a VM to properly
test the RPMs on a clean install.
Yeah, I think it'd be a good idea to install packages from upstream page and
try to update them to make sure they can be properly updated without having to
uninstall anything by hand.
Thanks a lot for your time and observations.
Glad to be of help.
