Description Walter Gould 2008-01-15 00:45:43 EST
Spec URL: http://niscripts.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/rpms/SPECS/perl-Storable.spec
SRPM URL: http://niscripts.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/rpms/SRPMS/perl-Storable-2.18-1.fc8.src.rpm
Description: The Storable package brings persistence to your Perl data structures
containing SCALAR, ARRAY, HASH or REF objects, i.e. anything that can be
conveniently stored to disk and retrieved at a later time.

This is my first fedora extras package and therefore, I am looking for a sponsor.

Thanks in advance.

A very unfortunate choice of a package to get involved into Fedora ;)

perl(Storable) is one of the dual-lifed perl modules, which upstream perl ships
as part of the main perl package as well as an independent module.

As such, perl(Storable) is part of the main perl package in Fedora, which means
it can not easily be replaced by a perl-add-on package.

I.e. I regret, but this package can't be added to Fedora.
