Description Leo Baltus 2007-01-22 16:10:21 UTC
Description of problem:
As of mutt- a dependency is changed from smtpdaemon to

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
always: install mutt-

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qip --requires mutt-
2. rpm -qip --requires mutt-
Actual results:
1: /usr/sbin/sendmail
2: smtpdaemon  

Expected results:

Additional info:
the smtpdaemon dependency was there to have a generic dependency, this breaks 
installation where an mta is beeing used which does not provide /usr/sbin/sendmail.

Comment 1 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-01-22 16:19:08 UTC
Which mta that would be? mutt doesn't connect to a smtp daemon, it uses

Comment 2 Leo Baltus 2007-01-22 16:39:44 UTC
Well, any mta for all I care. 

Better still is to have no dependency on any mta at all since it is
configurable, but since there is one I would rather have a generic depedency
rather than this specific one /usr/sbin/sendmail.

Comment 3 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-01-22 16:57:44 UTC
The dependency is more general, all packages in Core + Extras that provide
smtpdaemon provide also /usr/sbin/sendmail. mutt- doesn't require a
smtp deamon, so you can have only esmtp installed.

Ah, I was not amaware of this package, thank you for pointing this out to me.
