there is a problem with the new openssl097a package.
it doesnt actually provide openssl = 0.9.7a as required by things
like current kdelibs in rawhide... at least its a problem until
everything in rawhide is rebuilt to require the new openssl.
rpm -q --provides -p openssl097a-0.9.7a-1.i386.rpm
openssl097a = 0.9.7a-1
rpm -q --provides -p openssl-0.9.7e-2.i386.rpm
config(openssl) = 0.9.7e-2
openssl = 0.9.7e-2
The usual "%name = %version-%release" Provides is automatic for a package.
When you rename the package, it changes, too.
You cannot add an explicit "Provides: openssl = 0.9.7a" to the openssl097a
package, because recent behaviour in RPM would remove such a package with
the next update of the openssl package.
