Description Chitlesh GOORAH 2008-12-21 13:53:51 UTC
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

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2008-12-21 15:30:11 UTC
I don't see anything related to rpmdevtools here, reassinging to rpm.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 10:28:04 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Panu Matilainen 2010-02-15 07:05:24 UTC
Applied upstream, thanks for the patch. Doesn't seem worth separately tracking for Fedora though.
