Description: perl-IO-Compress-Base is the new base package for the various IO::Compress module. The latest version of packages such as perl-Compress-Zlib requires this package.
* IO-Compress-Base-2.003.tar.gz: MD5 digest verified against CPAN tarball
* Package name follows standard
* URL and Source0 urls are valid
* License verified (README file and main POD page)
* perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_xxx) present
* perl vendor libs present
* File permissions are sane
* No active tickets in
* %files section
* build requirements
add the following comments
Both these modules are available in Extras, but I still
don't know when the building system will be able to pull
* Warning: IO::Compress::Base will be a perl 5.10 core module.
Silly question, perhaps: is there a reason this bug's "product" is core, not

The update of the core package perl-Compress-Zlib from version 1.42 to version
2.00x will require several new modules (perl-IO-Compress-Base being one of them).
I'm going to need this for IO::Compress::Bzip2, which is required by the next
version of cpanspec.
Unfortunately, the version I submitted as bug 232703 requires
IO::Compress::Base >= 2.004. Would you mind bumping the version of this?
Oh, and if the IO::Compress::Base package I submitted in bug 232678 is any
help, please use it. (Apparently I missed this when I was searching for
duplicates because it is a Core review, not an Extras review.)
ok, I've bumped the version to 2.004, incorporated the changes from comment #1,
and stole some of Steven's %description text from bug #232678
Missing: BuildRequires: perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)
Finally revisiting this - Added the missing BuildRequires pointed out by Ralf:
Putting the review flag back to '?' for jpo to re-approve with this change.
There are 5 compression-related packages needed for a new Compress::Zlib
(2.004), including this one. Here are the bugzilla URLs for them:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=228537 - perl-IO-Compress-Base
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=243012 - perl-Compress-Raw-Zlib
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=243016 - perl-IO-Compress-Bzip2
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=243019 - perl-IO-Compress-Zlib
Here are some that have uncommented the Test:: BuildRequires mentioned in
comment #1 :
Hmm, this is holding up other packages. Since jpo has already approved this,
I'll give it a quick once over.
Builds fine in rawhide. The build dependencies seem OK to me; the tests are all
run save for just one which doesn't seem related to missing build dependencies:
1/79 skipped: readonly + threads
All tests successful, 1 subtest skipped.
Files=4, Tests=155, 0 wallclock secs ( 0.26 cusr + 0.06 csys = 0.32 CPU)
So I think everything's fine here, and I'll go ahead and set fedora-review back
