Re: [opensuse-factory] Dependency check on delete requests is insufficient.

I wonder if zypper is capable of "search for all provides in this

I think Mandrake urpm could do it.

For what it's worth, both DNF and Zypper (both in openSUSE Tumbleweed)
are capable of this. Zypper doesn't by default for user install
requests (you need to use "-C" for that), but it certainly does for
dependency resolution. You can do queries using DNF with "dnf
repoquery --whatprovides" or "dnf provides", and you can with Zypper
with "zypper search --provides".

Most OBS tooling resolves by capabilities (aka Provides) first, and
then handles preferences afterward.
