Description Dale Bewley 2006-11-16 18:12:37 UTC
Description of problem:
Spamassassin includes /usr/bin/sa-learn which has unsatisfied
dependencies for perl-Archive-Tar and perl-libwww-perl. 

Should this be considered a bug? Is there a reason not to add these deps?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install spamassassin
2. /usr/bin/sa-learn
Actual results:

[root@noc yum.repos.d]# sa-update
Can't locate LWP/UserAgent.pm in @INC ...
[root@noc yum.repos.d]# yum -y install perl-libwww-perl
[root@noc yum.repos.d]# sa-update
Can't locate Archive/Tar.pm in @INC ...
[root@noc yum.repos.d]# yum -y install perl-Archive-Tar

Expected results:

[root@noc yum.repos.d]# sa-update
sa-update: importing default keyring to '/etc/mail/spamassassin/sa-update-keys'...

Additional info:

Comment 1 Theo Van Dinter 2006-11-16 18:50:55 UTC
sa-learn has no such requirements.  As shown in your "actual results" section,
sa-update has extra requirements (all listed in the docs).

I think this has been addressed in other tickets, but the SA view point is that
sa-update is optional in 3.1, so the modules it requires are optional, so
they're not listed as requirements in our spec file.


Comment 2 Dale Bewley 2006-11-16 19:29:58 UTC
Shoot! I'm sorry. I didn't mean to say sa-learn. I meant sa-update.

If because sa-update is considered optional you don't want to list the
requirements, I guess I can live with that.


Comment 3 Warren Togami 2006-11-16 19:49:37 UTC
For FC5 we considered sa-update to be optional, but FC6 has the requires added
making it mandatory.
