Description Joel Uckelman 2011-11-18 13:41:10 EST
Description of problem:

After upgrading to Fedora 16, I get loads of errors from BackupPC's web interface in my httpd logs:

[Fri Nov 18 19:23:55 2011] [error] [client 192.168.1.33] [Fri Nov 18 19:23:55 2011] Text.pm: Use of qw(...) as parentheses is deprecated at /usr/share/BackupPC/lib/BackupPC/Storage/Text.pm line 301., referer: http://192.168.1.38/BackupPC?action=browse&host=localhost&num=69&share=/&dir=/etc/rc.d
[Fri Nov 18 19:23:56 2011] [error] [client 192.168.1.33] [Fri Nov 18 19:23:56 2011] Lib.pm: Use of qw(...) as parentheses is deprecated at /usr/share/BackupPC/lib/BackupPC/Lib.pm line 1412., referer: http://192.168.1.38/BackupPC?action=browse&host=localhost&num=69&share=/&dir=/etc/rc.d
[Fri Nov 18 19:23:58 2011] [error] [client 192.168.1.33] [Fri Nov 18 19:23:58 2011] BackupPC_Admin.pl: defined(@array) is deprecated at /usr/share/BackupPC/lib/BackupPC/CGI/Browse.pm line 68., referer: http://192.168.1.38/BackupPC?action=browse&host=localhost&num=69&share=/&dir=/etc/rc.d
[Fri Nov 18 19:23:58 2011] [error] [client 192.168.1.33] [Fri Nov 18 19:23:58 2011] BackupPC_Admin.pl: \t(Maybe you should just omit the defined()?), referer: http://192.168.1.38/BackupPC?action=browse&host=localhost&num=69&share=/&dir=/etc/rc.d

These make the httpd logs noisier than is necessary, so it would be nice if BackupPC adopted the current Perl syntax to make them go away.
