Bug ID: 1319126
Summary: incorrect use of Requires(pre)?
QA Contact: extras-qa(a)fedoraproject.org
CC: erlang(a)lists.fedoraproject.org, jeremy(a)jcline.org,
We've identified your package for having `Requires(pre)` RPM flag without
`Requires` . `Requires(pre)` rpm tag could be interpreted wrongly, so to
prevent any harm to Fedora users I am notifying you about this fact.
Any package that is specified in `Requires(pre)` could be freely removed.
Citing from RPM pages:
If there are no other dependencies on the package providing /usr/sbin/useradd,
that package is permitted to be removed from the system after installation(!)
If you really rely on dependency just during the installation process and your
package don't necessary require the dependency for the proper run of your
application then ignore this bug report and close it as NOTABUG. Otherwise add
to your spec file additional `Requires` for the dependency, please.
