Description Tomas Lestach 2009-03-26 07:06:57 EDT
Description of problem:

Package perl-XML-Writer is not Required by anything on Satellite 5.3.0, we might want to not ship it.

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

Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20090323.0 on i386

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Satellite 5.3.0.
2. Run rpm -q perl-XML-Writer, check that package perl-XML-Writer is installed.
3. Run rpm -e perl-XML-Writer.
4. Run rpm -q perl-XML-Writer again, check that it's now been removed.
Actual results:

Package perl-XML-Writer is installed but it is not required by anything in the Satellite, so it can safely be removed.

Expected results:

Either the package should be Required by some other package, or it should not be on the compose.

I am not able to find anything on 5.2 Satellite that used this perl module (so far).
Comment 2 Brandon Perkins 2009-03-26 14:02:30 EDT
Justin, please look and confirm that this can be removed.
Comment 3 Justin Sherrill 2009-03-27 11:23:19 EDT
[jlsherri@quartet spacewalk]$ git grep "XML::Writer"

Nope, not used it doesn't look like.
