Description Jose Pedro Oliveira 2008-10-06 14:08:54 EDT
Description of problem:
The latest version of perl-libwww-perl (5.814) doesn't include the files
/usr/bin/{HEAD,GET,POST}.  All previous versions installed them.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Actual results:
The perl-libwww-perl shipped with Fedora 9 included the mentioned files.
The Fedora 9 perl-libwww-perl update removes them.
The rawhide perl-libwww-perl version no longer includes them.

Expected results:
Restore the missing files.

Additional info:

$ rpm -qpl releases/9/Everything/i386/os/Packages/perl-libwww-perl-5.808-7.fc9.noarch.rpm | sort | head

$ rpm -qpl updates/9/i386.newkey/perl-libwww-perl-5.814-3.fc9.noarch.rpm | sort | head

$ rpm -qpl development/i386/os/Packages/perl-libwww-perl-5.814-2.fc10.noarch.rpm  | sort | head

NOTE: The F9 update release is newer than the rawhide one.

The new upstream Makefile.PL supports the --aliases option that allows us to install the mentioned files.

This affects Fedora 9 as well and is a serious regression. It has broken applications which depend on those scripts to be there.

Comment 9 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2008-10-12 11:28:22 EDT

Thanks for the update. 

Just a note about the changelog entry:

   "- fix #465855 - add --aliases into INSTALLDIRS"

This entry is misleading. To be precise "--aliases" is a command line option of the script Makefile.PL while INSTALLDIRS is an ExtUtils::MakeMaker variable. They aren't related as the changelog entry suggests.


PS - Version 5.8.17 is already available in CPAN:
