Math::GMP was designed to be a drop-in replacement both for Math::BigInt and
for regular integer arithmetic. Unlike BigInt, though, Math::GMP uses the GNU
gmp library for all of its calculations, as opposed to straight Perl functions.
This can result in speed improvements.
rpmlint is completely silent.
Package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
Specfile is properly named, legible, and uses macros consistently.
BuildRequires: is proper.
License is acceptable, matches License: tag and is included as %doc.
Source file md5sum matches upstream.
Package builds and installs on FC4 x86.
Thanks for the review. It turns out I needed to patch the testsuite to get it to
work on 64-bit arches (see http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=12751).
Build on target fedora-development-extras has now succeeded.
I've updated owners.list and requested an FC-4 branch.
