Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 50816
should own /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/HTML directory
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
perl-HTML-Tagset creates files in /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/HTML but
does not own this dir. Therefore, upgrading creates warnings like
| Warnung: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/HTML directory created with perms
Similar reports can be written for a lot of the other perl-XXX packages.
Shall I write reports for them also?
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
There is no one package which can rightly own one of these dirctories. Perl uses
these for /classes/ of modules.
Directories can be owned by multiple packages. Therefore, either make all
HTML::* packages the owner of the .../site_perl/5.6.0/HTML directory, or provide
a meta-packages providing this dir and add requirements on this packages.
Currently the site_perl directory is messed up by a lot of empty and unowned
directories, when perl-XXX packages are removed.
and if you install perl tarballs? No, not changing it.
