Hello (especially Adrian),

some of my questions were answered in an IRC session on
opensuse-buildservice yesterday, but others are still open. I'll give a
short summary and hope someone can answer the remaining questions ;-)

Adrian, this mails contains some "ask Adrian" hints I got from darix -
can you please have a look? ;-)

Another workaround I tested (idea from darix) is
#!BuildIgnore: php4 apache2-mod_php4 php4-mysql php4-gd

This fails on 10.0 and 9.3 with
mod_php_any is needed by fontlinge-QA-0.0.1-17.1
php-mysql is needed by fontlinge-QA-0.0.1-17.1
php-gd is needed by fontlinge-QA-0.0.1-17.1
but the php5-* packages provide them also :-(

This seems to be the solution causing the least trouble.

darix: of course you can ask adrian to add a prefer for one of them

-> Adrian, can you add a "prefer php5 (and php5-mysql, php5-gd) to
home:cboltz, please?
Or can I add it myself with osc editmeta ? (If yes: how?)

According to judas_iscariote, it should be mapped to "php" on Fedora
(checked on FC 5).
Adrian, can you add this mapping, please?

The best solution for this is
Requires: perl(Image::Magick) perl(DBD::mysql) [...]

Adrian, there should still be mappings for
- perl-PerlMagick -> ImageMagick-perl on FC5
- perl-Msql-Mysl-modules -> perl-DBD-MySQL in FC5
etc. ;-)

Good question, can I remove this because PHP needs it anyway?

Still open - any ideas about this?

PS: I also was persuaded to use the osc client instead of the web
interface - until now, I don't rue this :-)
BTW: It's quite easy to learn if you already know CVS.

By the way, it's a sign of how good the distribution is that we're
arguing about the name and not dealing with problems in the essence of
the thing. Even the overloaded servers are what an old boss of mine
would have called a "success problem." [Randall Schulz in opensuse]
