Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 462676
Review Request: perl-Config-General - Generic configuration module for Perl
Last modified: 2008-10-30 03:25:32 EDT
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/mchristi/target/perl-deps/perl-Config-General.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/mchristi/target/perl-deps/perl-Config-General-2.38-1.src.rpm
This module opens a config file and parses it's contents for
you. After parsing the module returns a hash structure which contains
the representation of the config file.
The format of config files supported by Config::General is inspired by
the well known apache config format, in fact, this module is 100%
read-compatible to apache configs, but you can also just use simple
name/value pairs in your config files.
In addition to the capabilities of a apache config file it supports
some enhancements such as here-documents, C- style comments or
multiline options. It is also possible to save the config back to
disk, which makes the module a perfect backend for configuration
It is possible to use variables in config files and there exists also
support for object oriented access to the configuration.
Marcela Mašláňová <email@example.com> is going to maintain the perl-Config-General. This is in F9 already. A different non-redhat person maintains that.
For the spec and src rpm in the first comment, I took the current fedora rpm. rpmlint did not report any errors on the spec or src rpm.
The package pass rpmlint and all other requirements.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
This package will be fixed in components #462774. This is just a review of package for RHEL-5.3 and could be closed.
Just sanity checking here -- this is a review of this package to be included in RHEL5.3, not EPEL, right?
-- "a different non-redhat person"
Yes, this review is for RHEL.
