First post. I think there's a packaging error in the mythweb package
for Leap 15.0. I'm not sure how to report bugs for packman, so I'm
trying here.

When I try to install mythweb from packman (i.e.
mythweb-0.28.2+git.20180201.af896aee-lp150.1.1.noarch.rpm) I see an

nothing provides apache2-mod_php5

But the only PHP module for apache from opensuse repositories seems to
be v7: apache2-mod_php7 - PHP7 module for the Apache 2.x webserver

Now according to <https://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/12588> this
version issue was encountered three years ago and was fixed in mythweb
two years ago apparently in v0.27. So 0.28 should be OK.

But when I look at
mythweb-0.28.2+git.20180201.af896aee-lp150.1.1.src.rpm and specifically
at mythweb.spec I see:

# spec file for package mythweb-0_27
# Copyright (c) 2016 SUSE LINUX GmbH, Nuernberg, Germany.
# Copyright (c) 2011,2012 Herbert Graeber


Requires:       apache2-mod_php5
Requires:       php5
Requires:       php5-mysql

I also see

# Please submit bugfixes or comments via http://bugs.opensuse.org/

So I think that an old spec file has been partially updated to a later
release. Is it possible to update the requires as well please? Or have
I misunderstood how all this works?

Also, I'm not sure whether the opensuse bugzilla is still the correct
place. There seems to be no place to specify a packman bug?
