Re: [opensuse-packaging] Is there a quick way to test all Requires are in factory?


On Dec 22 02:53 David Haller wrote (excerpt):
... usually[1] all "Requires:" are required by "BuildRequires:"


"Requires" and "BuildRequires" are independent of each other.

In other words: "Requires" and "BuildRequires" define two sets
of packages where the intersecting set is usually non-empty
but usually none is a superset of the other.

[1] can't think of a counter example right now

Think about a package which requires executables (also scripts)
or whatever other files which are provided by another package.

Most of my packages have "Requires" which are not in "BuildRequires".
