Description Clément OUDOT 2017-07-18 08:30:33 UTC
Seems this Perl module was never packaged, but is a dependency for LemonLDAP::NG.

If not possible to package, please let me know so I remove if from required dependencies.

Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2017-07-18 10:53:47 UTC
It looks like a lot of work to get this in EPEL-7.

Some of the dependencies (e.g. match::simple, Types::DateTime, Types::URI) are not currently packaged in Fedora and many of the others don't have EPEL branches yet.

I think it would need a packager that really wants this in EPEL to do this themselves, rather than someone that could build the packages and forget about them; there's a responsibility to EPEL users to maintain packages once they're there, particularly for any security issues that crop up.

Comment 2 Clément OUDOT 2017-07-18 12:45:43 UTC
Ok, not very important as WebID mechanism is not widely used.

Comment 3 Petr Pisar 2017-07-19 08:07:30 UTC
Does Web::ID work <https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=102317>?

Comment 4 Jan Kurik 2017-08-15 08:18:49 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.

Comment 5 Ben Cotton 2018-11-27 18:32:40 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30  Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version' of '27'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 6 Ben Cotton 2018-11-30 17:47:56 UTC
Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
