Description Ralf Corsepius 2008-01-09 14:09:14 UTC
Description of problem:
Upstream has deprecated Perl6::Bible

cf. http://search.cpan.org/~lichtkind/Perl6-Bible-0.37/

Unless there is another package using it in Fedora (I am not aware of any), I
would think it would be appropriate to remove this package from rawhide.

Comment 1 Steven Pritchard 2008-01-09 14:58:56 UTC
I'm working on a Perl6::Doc package, but somewhere between Perl6::Bible and
Perl6::Doc, a lot of character set encoding issues have creeped in to the
documentation.  When I get those worked out, I'll submit the new package,
probably obsoleting the old one.

Comment 2 Ralf Corsepius 2008-01-09 17:01:33 UTC
Fine with me - this package is your baby :)

Comment 3 Steven Pritchard 2008-01-10 19:44:47 UTC
I think I have the character set encoding issues ironed out.  If you have a
chance, could you (or anyone else reading this) look at this package:


Since nothing requires Perl6::Bible, I'm inclined to add "Obsoletes:
perl-Perl6-Bible" and a symlink for /usr/bin/p6bible pointing to /usr/bin/p6doc,
then just remove perl-Perl6-Bible from the repositories.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 04:21:45 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 23:21:38 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 16:32:31 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
