Thank you !
IMHO, the RPM using community would benefit greatly from having ALL .spec
file syntax completely defined & documented somewhere .
The only documentation on .spec file syntax I can find is :
Maximum RPM: http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm-snapshot/index.html
Fedora RPM Guide:
And neither of these make any mention of the "Provides: X '>'/'>='
Does anyone know of any better reference documentation for .spec file syntax ?
Thanks & Regards,
