Sounds good to me, worst that happens is we don't move it into Factory.
Is the best way to do this to add something like this to the spec file:
Provides: gaim = %version-%release Obsoletes: gaim
Or is there some spec-file-foo for saying it upgrades a differently named package that I'm not aware of?
Nope, that should be it. See ekiga for an example.
It might also be a good idea to add "Conflicts: gaim < [some version]" so that you can't also install an older version of gaim, which would probably fail because of file conflicts at install-time.
