Description Iain Arnell 2010-07-15 16:51:53 UTC

please respond to bug #555496 and bug #611014

perl-DBI-Dumper and perl-Data-Alias fail to build under perl 5.12. They should either be fixed or retired. According to rel-eng, perl-sig and perl maintainer can't initiate EOL for these packages[1].

I understand that ppisar has already contacted you about this[2]. 

There have also been automatic broken dependency mails for several weeks already.

I'm going to be (and have been) rather busy for a while -- over the next month I'm getting married, moving to Oregon, and changing my $job....  So my priority has been, and has to be, Real Life.

Iain, I trust your judgment here.  I'm not sure either of them should be retired, but neither do I have the time to sort through it all right now.  Data::Alias looks like it's being actively worked (at least by the Debian people), so hopefully some good will come of that.

Comment 2 Iain Arnell 2010-07-24 06:10:36 UTC

I tried adding myself to both packages, but pkgdb seems to be confused with DBI-Dumper. I'll take a look at both pkgs again to see if we can get some positive result. And I'll try to keep an eye on the rest of your pkgs too.
