A collection of modules that formats HTML as plaintext, PostScript or RTF.
Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2005-08-25 14:24:11 EDT
Suggested improved Summary: HTML formatter modules for Perl 
IMO perl-Font-AFM should be Required, not only BuildRequired. 
HTML::FormatPS doesn't work without it, see setfont() there; that's not an 
optional dependency but a hard error if the needed Font::Metrics::$something 
module cannot be found.  And the code to do that is obviously so funky that 
rpm cannot detect the dependency. 
In my local package, I used "Requires: perl-Font-AFM" instead of "Requires: 
perl(Font::AFM)" and ditto for BuildRequires.  That's because Font::AFM is 
never actually used except for the version check in Makefile.PL.  The actually 
needed modules are Font::Metrics::*.  This is just a note, not a blocker, you 
decide what to do with it. 
But the suggestion to pull perl-Font-AFM in one way or another when this 
package is installed still holds.

You are right, updated srpm with your comments reflected to appear soon at:
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2005-08-26 14:40:30 EDT
Approved, but please see the the suggested summary improvement from comment 1 
post-CVS-import in case you missed it.

Package Change Request
Package Name: perl-HTML-Format
New Branches: EL-6
Owners: tremble

No response from owner, and it's going to be tied to EL-6 SRPMs anyway...
Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2010-07-16 13:22:46 EDT
spot seems to already own a EL-6 branch here.
