This is what I'm starting to learn: supposedly, something like
"repoquery --whatprovides java-sdk" or "repoquery --whatprovides
java-jre" is the way to go. It's a virtual Provides thing, but when I
checked, JPackage's packages didn't come up (perhaps because they don't
provide binary packages or maybe the virtual Provides).

The rpm, yum and repo query mechanisms coupled with their virtual
provides are proving to be pretty cool.

P.S. Change of Subject: and thread?
