0f5fd8ee458daa4792f509d2dce2ea53  perl-IO-Compress-Base.spec

* 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
  and (maybe)

* build requirements
  add the following comments
    #BuildRequires:  perl(Test::Pod)
    #BuildRequires:  perl(Test::NoWarnings)

  Both these modules are available in Extras, but I still
  don't know when the building system will be able to pull
  Extras packages.

* 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).

Comment 4 Steven Pritchard 2007-03-17 11:15:38 EDT
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.)
Comment 5 Robin Norwood 2007-03-21 13:17:38 EDT
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



How's that?
Comment 6 Ralf Corsepius 2007-03-22 00:26:30 EDT
Missing: BuildRequires: perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)
Comment 7 Robin Norwood 2007-06-05 14:52:13 EDT
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.
Comment 8 Robin Norwood 2007-06-06 18:09:21 EDT
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=243010 -
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
Comment 10 Jason Tibbitts 2007-06-08 17:47:34 EDT
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
to '+'.
