Review Request: perl-Set-Crontab Expand crontab(5)-style integer lists

Set::Crontab parses crontab-style lists of integers and defines some
utility functions to make it easier to deal with them.
Note: This is the first of a series of packages that we trying to get into Fedora for the ultimate goal of getting Spacewalk into Fedora.
I really hate to say this, but this software is licensed under the Artistic
license _only_ (not the usual "Same as Perl"). Software which is only available
under the Artistic license is not permissible in Fedora according to the lawyers.
I thought that I remembered that also, but when I looked at the wiki page last
night (the same one you refer to) I didn't see Artistic as bad. Now when I look
again, I am just wrong. Apparently Artistic != Artistic 2.0 it's ok.
If you really need this package, you could contact the author and see about
relicensing the code. Or perhaps just get him to clarify whether he's using the
original artistic license or one of the acceptable versions. Unfortunately the
link in the license text in the documentation doesn't actually go to any license
On IRC last night, though, I recall someone indicating that this module isn't
actually used by spacewalk.
Spacewalk need it due Schedule-Cron-Events.
I will try to contact original author.

Waiting to appear updated on CPAN...
Release 1.01 was broken.
Release 1.02 is fixed and is relicensed:
This module is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
it under the same terms as Perl itself.
Licence is ok. Let's wait for koji build...
oukej, your package pass the review
