Ticket #217 (closed enhancement: fixed)

'Deps' module should support "OR" / "alternate" dependencies

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: desai
Priority: major Milestone: Bcfg2 1.0.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-server Version:
Keywords: Deps Cc:


For debian (and other, I'm sure) packaging formats, the system should support parsing an either, or dependency for a package.

An example of this is for bcfg2 itself - the debian package requires either fam, or gamin, but not both.

The selection of which one would occur at a higher level (i.e., a bcfg2-server group), but automatically generated package dependency lists would know that dependencies are fulfulled.

(Another example is for any package that requires a web server - it can be apache, apache2, etc. - you just need to have one installed.)
