Description Enrico Scholz 2001-08-03 16:01:36 UTC
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?

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-08-06 22:28:20 UTC
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.

Comment 2 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-08-10 03:17:46 UTC
There is no one package which can rightly own one of these dirctories. Perl uses
these for /classes/ of modules.

Comment 3 Enrico Scholz 2001-08-10 08:44:48 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-08-10 22:11:20 UTC
and if you install perl tarballs? No, not changing it.
