Description Allisson Azevedo 2009-01-24 17:44:32 EST
Spec URL: http://allisson.fedorapeople.org/packages/clutter-perl/clutter-perl.spec

SRPM URL: http://allisson.fedorapeople.org/packages/clutter-perl/clutter-perl-

Description: The Clutter Perl bindings allow you to write canvas-based applications in
a Perlish and object-oriented way, freeing you from having to care about
casting and memory management of the original Clutter C API, and yet
remaining close to its spirit.

You can find out more about Clutter at http://www.clutter-project.org.
Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2009-03-13 12:05:14 EDT
Since this is a regular Perl module, hosted at CPAN, shouldn't it follow the normal Perl module naming guidelines?  That would make it perl-Clutter.

Also, I believe the URL should be http://search.cpan.org/dist/Clutter/.  The non-capitalized one takes me to a search page.

It might be good to contact upstream to see what the actual license of the package is.  The README file says LGPLv2+; the Clutter man page says "LGPLv2+ or Artistic".  The Clutter::TestHelper says "under the same terms as Clutter itself" and some other documents (Clutter::Cookbook, for example) just have a copyright notice with no license.
