Hi, please retire dvipng package. It is now part of TeX Live and is properly obsoleted. Thanks!


blocked in rawhide thanks

Blocked in f18 as well.

Are you going to add
{{{
Provides: dvipng ...
}}}
too, or do you expect this set of packages to adjust their dependency to
{{{
Requires: texlive-dvipng ...
}}}
or
{{{
Requires: tex-dvipng ...
}}}

oops, wrong repoquery (that one was on f17), f18's is:
{{{
$ sudo repoquery --whatrequires dvipng
TeXamator-0:1.7.5-1.fc18.noarch

}}}

Actually texlive-dvipng package in texlive now contains Provides: dvipng and Provides: tex-dvipng. A non-texlive package requiring dvipng could use any of Requires to these three still keeping all the dependencies OK.
