[opensuse-factory] RFC: Browser independent provides (fate#313084)
Hi all,

I got a bug about icedtea-web is not installed by default

I am sure that instead of relying on patterns, the problem can be solved
very easily in icedtea-web package itself

Supplements: packageand($BROWSER:java-openjdk)

will push the package when browser and JRE is installed. However what is
the $BROWSER? To my suprise we have 8(!) different browsers in Factory
atm. But maintaing a list of several changing (security team might
decide 8 more or less unmaintained browsers is too much) Supplements
does not sound sexy for me, so I wrote a FATE#313084 Universal rpm
symbol for browsers

In short I propose add

1.) One common symbol for all browsers 'browser', 'browser-plugin', or
2.) Rendering engine specific one 'gecko' or 'browser(gecko)', 'webkit'
and 'presto'

Please share your opinion here or in the FATE.
