Hi,

I need both Mail::SPF and Mail::SPF::Query for sa-update to work properly.
(sa-update is part of spamassassin.)

Un fortunatly the packages are mutally exclusive. Is this just a packaging 
issue where perl-Mail-SPF got a few files too many?

[root at balin spamassassin]# yum install perl-Mail-SPF-Query perl-Mail-SPF
