SL 10.0 already includes gaim 1.5.0, which is the latest stable.
But I also provide 1.5.0 for SL 9.3, 9.2, 9.1

Note sure about "gaim-beta"... users won't be notified automatically of an upgrade to gaim 2.0.0
stable and will stay on gaim-beta if they don't pay attention.

Obviously, gaim-beta must have

Obsoletes: gaim
Provides: gaim
Provides: gaim = %{version}
- ---8<--------------

Ok, thanks for sharing your experience with gaim 2.0.0 beta ;)

I'm currently packaging it, which includes backporting all SUSE patches, but I won't include it in
my repository just yet, will put it somewhere else (additional repository, rpm-md only) and announce
it when finished (intended for bleeding-edge testing only).
