Description Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-01-06 15:30:00 EST
Spec Name or Url:
http://gsd.di.uminho.pt/jpo/software/fedora/perl-UNIVERSAL-isa.spec

SRPM Name or Url:
http://gsd.di.uminho.pt/jpo/software/fedora/perl-UNIVERSAL-isa-0.05-1.src.rpm

Description:
Whenever you use "isa" in UNIVERSAL as a function, a kitten using
Test::MockObject dies. Normally, the kittens would be helpless, but
if they use UNIVERSAL::isa (the module whose docs you are reading),
the kittens can live long and prosper.

This module replaces UNIVERSAL::isa with a version that makes sure
that if it's called as a function on objects which override isa,
isa will be called on those objects as a method.

In all other cases the real UNIVERSAL::isa is just called directly.


Note: new requirement of perl-Test-MockObject
Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2006-01-31 05:52:58 EST
Review:

- rpmlint clean
- package and spec naming OK
- package meets guidelines
- license is same as perl, matches spec
- spec file written in English and is legible
- sources match upstream
- package build OK on FC4 (i386) and in mock for rawhide (i386)
- BR's OK
- no locales, libraries, pkgconfigs, or subpackages to worry about
- not relocatable
- no directory ownership or permissions problems
- no duplicate files
- %clean section present and correct
- macro usage is consistent
- code, not content
- no large docs
- docs don't affect runtime
- no desktop file needed
- scriptlets

Needswork:

- Source URL
http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/id/N/NU/NUFFIN/UNIVERSAL-isa-%{version}.tar.gz
doesn't work - suggest
http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/N/NU/NUFFIN/UNIVERSAL-isa-%{version}.tar.gz
instead

Fix that and I'll approve the package.

Paul,

My mistake! There were two "id" directories in the supplied source URL.

New SRPM:
http://gsd.di.uminho.pt/jpo/software/fedora/perl-UNIVERSAL-isa-0.05-2.src.rpm

The specfile link is the same.
