Description Peter Bieringer 2007-02-09 13:11:54 UTC
Description of problem:
perl-Net-DNS 0.48 doesn't support SPF, it's too old

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to use Mail::SPF on RHEL4 system
Actual results:
# spfquery --id account@domain.example --ip
Net::DNS::typesbyname() argument (SPF) is not TYPE### at
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi/Net/DNS.pm line 144.

Expected results:
Support of SPF DNS type

Additional info:
SPF is supported since 0.56:

*** 0.56 February 20, 2006

Fix rt.cpan.org 17694
   Net::DNS::typesbyval() now confesses on undefined
   args. Acknowledgements to Dean Serenevy.

Feature Implemented SPF (typecode 99).

   The class completely inherits from Net::DNS::RR::TXT (the easiest 
   RR to implement ever).

Please provide an update.

Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-08-15 09:53:59 UTC
I'd rather not update to 0.58. There was a lot of changes, features, etc. I'm not sure if this package won't break ABI with other modules.

Comment 2 Marcela Mašláňová 2010-02-22 13:18:01 UTC
The last planned update of RHEL-4 will be focused on performance and security bugs only. The next release should solve this issue.
