Great idea, you can start with your package... Seriously, it's hundred
of packages, you can hardly fix all of them and you can't be sure that
there won't be any missing requires during updates. It would be nice if
we have possibility to check it automatically. Rpm changed few things
and it's now finding more requires. That's a start ;-) But it shouldn't
happened few days before freeze.
