Description Robin Norwood 2006-12-06 15:46:12 EST
The latest version of perl-RPM-Specfile (1.51) now requires perl-YAML.

perl-YAML is in extras, however.  To solve this problem, we could:

o Move perl-YAML to core (which might not be such a bad idea, as YAML is getting
more popular)
o Move perl-RPM-Specfile to Extras.

After some discussion on fedora-perl-devel list, consensus seems to be to move
perl-RPM-Specfile to Extras.

Of course, there's some debate as to whether there will even *be* an extras for
FC7, or whatever it will be called. :-)

So, please Do The Right Thing with this package, whatever that is, bearing in
mind that there is a new dependency on perl-YAML, and the package doesn't really
need to be in the core distribution (though it should still be available).
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2006-12-06 15:47:13 EST
Have you put it through the package review process for Extras, had it approved, etc?
Comment 2 Robin Norwood 2006-12-06 15:52:17 EST
Ah, no - is there a separate process for Core -> Extras, or the same process?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2006-12-06 15:54:30 EST
At the moment, the process from Core->Extras is the same as the process from

I don't want to know why perl-RPM-Specfile now requires YAML, do I?

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
