GIT obsolete git-p4 in RPM spec file.v1.5.3.1
HPA noticed that yum does not like the newer git RPM set; it turns out that we do not ship git-p4 anymore but existing installations do not realize the package is gone if we do not tell anything about it. David Kastrup suggests using Obsoletes in the spec file of the new RPM to replace the old package, so here is a try. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

+Fixes since v1.5.3
+This is solely to fix the generated RPM's dependencies. We used
+to have git-p4 package but we do not anymore. As suggested on
+the mailing list, this release makes git-core "Obsolete" git-p4,
+so that yum update would not complain.
