[Mageia-dev] RFC: Add versioned require in rpm on rpm-helper

So just to make sure I'm following this right:
 1. Versioned require will fix urpmi-based upgrades.

 2. Installer (fresh-install) will be fine because basesystem-minimal
will pull in rpm which will pull in rpm-helper.  WE can be confident
this will happen early.

 3. Installer (upgrade) will still be broken as it does not treat the
rpm package inside the chroot as any kind of priority update that is
installed early in the upgrade process.

Is that correct?
