Dear all

I am using tumblweed in combination with kodi from packman repository.

when trying to upgrade from Tumbleweed-20181205 to latest tumbleweed 
version I get the following problem:


Problem: kodi.binary-addons-17.6-1.11.x86_64 requires libtag1 = 1.11.1, 
but this requirement cannot be provided
   deleted providers: libtag1-1.11.1-4.1.x86_64
  Solution 1: deinstallation of kodi.binary-addons-17.6-1.11.x86_64
  Solution 2: keep obsolete libtag1-1.11.1-4.1.x86_64
  Solution 3: break kodi.binary-addons-17.6-1.11.x86_64 by ignoring some 
of its dependencies


Please note that the be version of libtag1 is now 
"libtag1-1.11.1+git20181028-1.1.x86_64" .

It seems kodi  kodi.binary-addons-17.6-1.11.x86_64 was built with 
requiring "= 1.11.1" rather than ">= 1.11.1".

So can you change the packaging of kodi.binary-addons-17.6-1.11.x86_64 
from "=" to a ">=" to allow any newer libtag1 version?

Thank you for you consideration!
