Dear developers,

Most of you have probably already ran into problems with
binary-incompatible YCP modules after updating to newer yast2-core. It
happens when new core is changed internally and it's caused by wrong RPM
dependencies in yast2-* packages.

==Solution in yast2.rpm==
Only yast2.rpm contained
Requires: yast2-core
but even that definition hadn't been enough. By now,
contains: Requires: yast2-core >= %(echo `rpm -q --queryformat
'%{VERSION}' yast2-core`)
(suggested by Coolo)

Hmm, so we cannot release yast2.rpm as maintenance update without
releasing also yast2-core?

We can release a new yast2.rpm as an update if the %{VERSION} of
yast2-core is the same as it was before.

But new yast2-core needs to rebuild everything. Well, maybe not
always... It depends.

That's why I wanted you to tell me your opinions :)

So, it's no-no then ;-)

I suggest to put the version dependency everytime yast2-core changes the
binary format - this happens like once in 2 openSUSE releases.
