The problem is, you cannot build one module for dovecot that does them
all, so the module has to be rebuilt with slightly different options and
must conflict with all other dovecot-antispam RPMs. Is possible from one
spec file and tarball? This would require different setup, build,
install and package setups. This is because the same module would be
built for each area, need to be packaged, and then move onto the rest.

Are you suggesting that in order for multiple things to Provide: dovecot-antispam they need to come from the same SRPM?

Sorry for not responding quickly. This email disappeared. The problem I have is that dovecot-antispam has to be built specifically for each of the three or four ways it works. (Being: crm114, dspam, mail forward and some signature thing.)

Instead of having four SRPMs which are identical other than just a few configuration lines and SPEC file changes, is it possible to build all four from one SRPM or at least from one tarball?

Thank you,
