Description Chitlesh GOORAH 2008-12-21 08:53:51 EST
Description of problem:
rpmbuild is taking "use module" found in comments as Requires:


=for To do:
use regexp-generating

rpmbuild takes perl(regexp::generating) as a Requires, which is wrong.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rebuild the srpm http://chitlesh.fedorapeople.org/RPMS/perl-Hardware-Vhdl-Lexer-1.00-1.fc10.src.rpm
2. now comment the workaround mentioned in the spec
3. you will see commenting the workaround, add perl(regexp::generating) as Requires
Actual results:
rpmbuild takes perl(regexp::generating) as a Requires

Expected results:
No requires for module in commented codes

I don't see anything related to rpmdevtools here, reassinging to rpm.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Candidate fix

perl.{req,prov} try to skip over POD sections, but don't know about =for.  The attached patch should fix it.

Applied upstream, thanks for the patch. Doesn't seem worth separately tracking for Fedora though.
