Description Ralf Corsepius 2008-03-17 11:39:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Module::CoreList-2.13 seems defective.
cf. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=437804

Upstream recommends to upgrade to 2.14.

Module::CoreList is one of the "dual-lived" perl modules, which would mean we
have to alternatives to choose from:
a) Reactivate the (currently) retired perl-Module-CoreList package
b) To replace the Module::CoreList in Fedora's "perl" package.

What would you prefer?

I am in favor of a), because it would provide a more flexible solution, which
would avoid having to rebuild "perl" (Allowing this option had been one purpose
of the perl-package split). Downside: core-perl would be build against an
outdated Module::CoreList (2.13). Also, I am not sure if yum can handle this.

But I also don't have much of a problem with b) - It would be less flexible and
a bit more effort.

I prefer B. It will be in rawhide soon.

I regret having to say so, but your decision is a "slipped-by" opportunity ;)

a) would have been a precedence for a perl-dist package being provided by
different src.rpms (old from perl, new from separate package).
It would have been an opportunity to demonstrate a better, closer and more
flexible coupling of perl to CPAN: "If a core package is too old/broken",
replace it with an external one ("dual-lived" in Perl terms).

Anyway, you chose your poison ;)
