- Drop explicit BR: perl.
Comment 2 Jason Tibbitts 2006-03-02 12:39:23 EST
Not much more to say here.  Summary needs fixing, but otherwise everything is
fine.   The Requires: perl(Kwiki) >= 0.32 is unnecessary as RPM will find the
Kwiki dependency and no older version exists in extras.  Interestingly, RPM
doesn't find the mod_perl2 requirement.

Approved; please supply a better summary when you check in.

Whilst the versioned perl(Kwiki) dep doesn't need to be versioned for Extras, it
may be useful for those people that rebuild Extras packages for different
distributions (not an uncommon thing). It might be argued that adding a
versioned dep clutters the spec file but I think that it's a personal preference
issue for the maintainer rather than something that should be fixed. IMHO.
Comment 4 Jason Tibbitts 2006-03-02 12:53:43 EST
Sorry, I meant to indicate explicitly that this wasn't a blocker, as I did in my
other review.  I just wanted to point out that RPM will find the perl(Kwiki)
dependency on its own so there's no need to list it.

The package is approved in any case.
Comment 5 Steven Pritchard 2006-03-02 13:00:11 EST
For the record, those versioned deps are generated by cpanspec.  (Try "cpanspec
-v Kwiki::ModPerl" if you want to see exactly what I was working from.)  I
usually don't trim them, even if they aren't strictly necessary.  I usually do
remove non-versioned deps, and Core module dependencies are automatically
removed by cpanspec.
