Fedora Update Notification
2013-07-01 22:38:37

Name        : dpkg
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 1.16.10
Release     : 6.fc18
URL         : http://packages.debian.org/unstable/admin/dpkg
Summary     : Package maintenance system for Debian Linux
Description :

This package contains the tools (including dpkg-source) required
to unpack, build and upload Debian source packages.

This package also contains the programs dpkg which used to handle the
installation and removal of packages on a Debian system.

This package also contains dselect, an interface for managing the
installation and removal of packages on the system.

dpkg and dselect will certainly be non-functional on a rpm-based system
because packages dependencies will likely be unmet.

Update Information:

add support to logrotate and minor spec enhancements.
