Description: ------------ pear makerpm PEAR produces line in .spec Conflicts: php-pear-PEAR_Frontend_Web != 0.5.0 this is 1. invalid for .spec 2. it is produced in case where it's not neccessary needed, because $dep['conflicts'] is present in array but empty. here's fix for the #2, not sure for #1.

thanks for the patch. In fact, it is correct. The <conflicts/> tag transforms the entire dependency into a reverse dependency, which means it disallows all versions that are not present, so this should be producing a dependency that conflicts with all versions <= 0.5.0 except for version 0.5.0. The problem is that this results in the wrong thing (conflicts with all versions != 0.5.0), it should translate to a "conflicts with all versions < 0.5.0", so the logic in converting the dependency needs to be overhauled to generate a set of versions and then put that set into RPM terms

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
