I've just built perl-SQL-Statement-1.20 in EL-6 (it's part of a chain of dependencies for one of my packages) and noticed that it has failing tests and a comment that they're fixed in 1.21_1. And we're up to 1.27 in devel now thanks to ppisar.
Any chance you'll consider updating to 1.27 in EL-6? I know there's a potential incompatibility with older code, but if it's not updated now, I suspect we'll be stuck with 1.20 in EL for the foreseeable future.
I went ahead and made the update.
