Pull components dependent on perl out of main postfix package?
Last modified: 2009-02-25 11:28:50 EST
Description of problem:
I am working to make the dependencies of a subset of Fedora's packages more fine-grained. I would like to try to pull the perl dependency out of the postfix package.
The postfix package requires perl because it includes /usr/sbin/qshape. Could this be added to a sub-package (e.g., postifx-queuetools) or rewritten in C?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Notice postfix requires perl.
Actually, a real man could rewrite the script in bash, I think. Not that I would have a time and wish to do so.
You are absolutely right. I am (very) slowly trying to do just that...or cheating and finding C implementations done by others.
I'm preparing a subpackage for the script.
postfix-2.5.5-2.fc11 now has -perl-scripts subpackage which contains qshape and pflogsumm scripts.
postfix-2.5.5-2.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
postfix-2.5.5-2.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.
postfix-2.5.6-1.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
postfix-2.5.6-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
