Fedora 12 and 13 packages installed when installing GNote and Inkscape on Fedora 14
 
Hi. I recently upgraded from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14 and noticed something strange when I used Yum to install GNote and Inkscape. Yum installed the Fedora 14 version of the programs, but installed some dependencies that were actually from Fedora 12 and 13. The output below shows what packages were installed.

Yum output:

==================================================================================================== ===================================================================
Package Arch Version Repository Size

Installing:
gnote i686 0.7.3-4.fc14 updates 1.6 M

libwpg i686 0.1.3-4.fc12 fedora 92 k
python-lxml i686 2.2.8-1.fc14 fedora 570 k



When I ran the yum command to list all of the packages for the dependencies in question, it only listed the version for Fedora 12 or 13. Is there something wrong with one of my repositories or do these Fedora 14 programs actually use packages from previous versions of Fedora?

Nothing wrong.

Thats the way it works.

In fact, if you'd like to see more, do this:

rpm -qa|grep fc13
rpm -qa|grep fc12
