Description Simon Wilkinson 2008-03-27 10:47:40 EDT
Spec URL: http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/sxw/perl-Task-Weaken.spec
SRPM URL: http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/sxw/perl-Task-Weaken-1.02-1.fc9.src.rpm
One recurring problem in modules that use Scalar::Util's weaken function is
that it is not present in the pure-perl variant.

This restores the functionality testing to a dependency you do once in
your Makefile.PL, rather than something you have to write extra tests
for each time you write a module.

update new SRPM and will APPROVE this review.
Comment 2 Simon Wilkinson 2008-03-28 04:44:36 EDT
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing suggests that 'Artistic 2.0' is the correct short license tag for the 
Artistic license, and doesn't list 'Artistic' as a valid option - is that no longer the case?
Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-03-28 08:27:45 EDT
and where can I see text of Artistic 2.0 included in upstream tarball?
Artistic 2.0 license text is given at
and Artistic 1.0 license text is given at 
Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-03-28 08:29:40 EDT
And I rechecked license its actually 
look at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing for "Perl License (variant)"
Comment 5 Simon Wilkinson 2008-03-28 09:03:10 EDT
Thanks for clearing that up - I'll remember that for the future. 

New SRPM is

cvs done.
Comment 11 Paul Howarth 2009-08-10 09:56:06 EDT
The license for this package is "Same terms as Perl itself", which is "GPL+ or Artistic", not "GPLv2+ or Artistic" as included in the package. Perhaps you could fix that and update to 1.03?
