Find attached the spec for the new/old remtty package.

My tests with the "Obsoletes" clause were unsuccessful:
Using "yum  upgrade" retty-0.1 (from rpmforge) was upgraded to
remtty-0.2 (from my provate repo) but I did not manage to get the old
retty-0.1 package removed automatically.
Had to remove it manually to avoid an automatic upgrade to the
conflicting retty-1.0

Probably you are more successful.
