Re: suggests/requires in rpm - missingOK

Should the missingOK flag just make you able to *install* a package

have a libary that needs to be upgraded in paralell to an app, and you
upgraded the app but not the lib (because of slow packager etc) - then
some functionality would suddenly just wanish...



Nah, convoluting install vs upgrade mode behavior changes into "missingok" would
make everyone's head hurt. Certainly gives me a headache ;-)


Nice and KISSy, "missingok" is a "optional" edge in a dependency graph until the
depsolver guys catch up ...
