           Summary: make 32-bit arch dependencies optional for rpm
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64

            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement

Newer rpm tools for Fedora [¹] and OpenSuse [²] support weak dependencies
(using Recommends: instead of Requires:). Like for the debian package we should
use that to support minimal installations.
This requires quite some change for our release scripts as the debian rpmtool
used currently doesn't support this.
It's also yet unclear whether such rpm packages are backwards compatible.
