Description Ralf Corsepius 2010-07-03 05:43:15 UTC
Description of problem:
perl-Data-Alias fails to build on rawhide.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rebuild the package in rawhide
Actual results:
Build failure.

Expected results:

Additional info:
* Apparently this package is incompatible to perl-5.12 and can't be built against it.
* Its upstream appears dead.

This package needs to be made working or it will have to be removed from 
Fedora >= 14. AFAICT, this package is not used by Fedora itself, so it's probably safe to remove it.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

According to rgs on perl5-porters list[1], upstream will not be updating Data::Alias for perl 5.12. And despite Niko's efforts at debian[2], it doesn't look like a comprehensive patch will be coming from them either.

Fortunately, though, we're in the same position as debian - the only direct reverse dependency was perl-Data-Visitor, and that was a soft dep that's already been removed.

I've gone ahead and tried to have it blocked for F14 and rawhide[3]. If that works, I'll retire it in git and pkgdb.

perl-Data-Alias is retired now in F14 and rawhide.
