Description Peter Robinson 2015-11-23 22:19:17 UTC
So git-2.4.2-2 introduces a split of git into git and git-core with the later not needing to depend on perl.

The following two files included in git-core, at least from 2.5, bring in the perl deps again.

/usr/share/git-core/contrib/hooks/setgitperms.perl
/usr/share/git-core/contrib/hooks/update-paranoid

I'm not sure whether we move the two single files into the main git package, or whether we move over all of the contrib directory into either the main git package or a git-contrib sub package.

Either way can we remove them from git-core so we can drop the perl dep from git-core again. Affects at least f-23 and rawhide

Comment 1 Petr Stodulka 2015-11-27 17:10:02 UTC
Thanks Peter for report. I miss that when I split packages. These should be moved to git package on F23 too.

Comment 2 Petr Stodulka 2015-11-27 17:31:29 UTC
I am not sure that new subpackage git-contrib has enough benefit for us. I want to cut away from git-core now as little as possible.

No issues, it was just a thought, I basically want as much as possible without perl ;-)

It should be OK now.
