Hey Ray!

Hi Andres,

So I'm wondering, is this possible in OBS/OpenSUSE? Is 'webserver' a meta-package that let's the user choose between the available webservers? (apache, cherokee,...)

I guess, the most widely used http-daemon might be "apache2", so you might add apache as you webserver.
but keep in mind that SLED does not support "apache2", use "lighttpd" instead.

Mmm, apache2 is not present in SLED?? Well, I guess then that my package will only be available in SLES and Opensuse... (indeed, it's server side software so...)

BTW, it happens the same with the dependency "smtp-daemon" in this fedora rpm I'm mentioning. And I recently asked a question on IRC about this, but related to database engines so, if this is supported, can I do something similar for requiring mysql OR postgresql? (As I've been told that rpm doesn't support this out of the box; I wonder if we should advocate for a RFE upstream about a new "packageor()" keyword.)

I am not very sure about what do you want? smtp-daemon or database?
"postfix" would be a good choice for smtp-daemon
and "mysql" is OK for database.

But this is the thing I want to avoid: I don't want to select a preference of mine, the user should select.
