Review request: perl-HTML-Format - HTML::Format Perl module

SRPM Name or Url:
A collection of modules that formats HTML as plaintext, PostScript or RTF.
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:
Approved, but please see the the suggested summary improvement from comment 1
post-CVS-import in case you missed it.

No response from owner, and it's going to be tied to EL-6 SRPMs anyway...
spot seems to already own a EL-6 branch here.
