 Standardize server virtual provides
Standardize server provides. This implies changing smtpdaemon to server(smtp).
- Name: PatriceDumas
 Current status
- Targeted release: Fedora 9
- Last updated: Wed Mar 19 2008
- Percentage of completion: 100%
The servers provides have been added, now the package maintainers can add them in the dependent packages. They can also keep smtpdaemon for compatibility with previous releases.
There is no precise time schedule for having replaced smtpdaemon by server(smtp), though it would make sense to have it done when F-8 is EOL since server(smtp) was introduced in F-9.
 Detailed Description
The detailed description is at:
 Benefit to Fedora
Rationalize server provides.
Add server(smtp) Provides to the packages providing smtpdaemon, and once it is done change smtpdaemon Requires to server(smtp).
More details on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/ServerProvides
 Test Plan
No test plan.
 User Experience
 Contingency Plan
The Guideline is the documentation, Ville page listing virtual provides is already updated.
 Release Notes
Users should change the smtpdaemon Provides and Requires to server(smtp).
