2016-12-16 - psimons@suse.com
- We cannot update from fdupes 1.51 to 1.6.1. That "downgrade"
works okay'ish for Tumbleweed because we can replace the old
package with the new one, but in SLE this is not possible. We
asked upstream to please release a "2.0" version to remedy these
issues (https://github.com/adrianlopezroche/fdupes/issues/74),
but he does not respond. Therefore, we'll call this version 1.61,
ignoring upstreams change in the versioning scheme.
2016-12-05 - psimons@suse.com
- Upstream has changed their versioning scheme after version 1.51.
Unfortunately, the new version 1.6.x won't be recognized as
"newer" by zypper. This commit adds appropriate "provides" and
"obsoletes" attributes to the spec file to remedy that issue.

- Drop 50_bts284274_hardlinkreplace.dpatch. The --linkhard option
added by this patch has an implementation bug that can cause data
loss. https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=677419
has more details.
