# emacs-libidn merged with main package in 1.30-4
Obsoletes: emacs-libidn < 1.30-4
Provides: emacs-libidn < 1.30-4
Requires: emacs-filesystem >= %{_emacs_version}

Too bad it was merged :-/

* Thu Jun 25 2015 Miroslav Lichvar <mlichvar at redhat.com> - 1.30-4
- merge emacs-libidn with main package (#1234563)

"Package should not ship a separate emacs sub-package"

"The Emacs add-on packaging guidelines no longer stipulate that packages which
also bundle support for Emacs should split out those Emacs files into separate
sub-packages. This package should instead ship those files with the main
package which should also Require emacs-filesystem. See
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Emacs for more detail."
