kde service "Provides" for rpm packaging
rdieter
As a followup to my last blog about auto-installation of plasma dataengines, here's an incremental step in getting there, a straw-man implementation for generating kde service-related dependencies during rpm generation.

The latest version of what I'm working on is at:
http://rdieter.fedorapeople.org/rpms/kde4-service.prov

This is for the Provides side of things.  A harder unsolved problem still is the Requires side, which currently requires perusing of code (or writing packagekit hooks or finding magical ponies).  I'd much prefer if this sort of metadata was more easily available, say, also in service .desktop files, but I'm not picky.

Enjoy, discuss, frolic.
