While trying to get GNOME 2.24 build on openSUSE 11.0, I found that with our BuildRequires, a lot of packages will build against old versions in 11.0. Reason for this is that we, in most cases, don't use something like:
BuildRequires: xyz-devel >= x.y.z
This causes the repo to be rebuilt frequently against old/new packages.
So, my question is, should we try to fix this up (obviously not against all packages at once)? I think it'd be quite good to have in the future (think, building GNOME 2.26 for openSUSE 11.1 if we get that far.. :-)
AFAIK, it isn't the openSUSE way to do things like that (depend on specific versions) best double check with darix et al, but I have been advised not to. I know the other distros do so, but hey we're a special bunch :)
