[New: openFATE 313500] allow to combine modalias and packageand
Feature added by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)

Feature #313500, revision 1
Title: allow to combine modalias and packageand

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Partner organization:

Userspace drivers often do not make sense to have installed without the
subsystem using them. E.g. - X drivers without X - sane backends without sane -
cups filters without cups Therefore using modalias for such driver packages may
either be useless or may cause undesired installation of other packages.
Modaliases on X drivers for example would cause installation of X in the
Minimal installation that is specifically intended to be without X.

We therefore need a way to combine "packageand" and "modalias" supplements.
