Description Terje Røsten 2010-07-14 22:38:35 UTC
Description of problem:

latest perl in rawhide has: 

Obsoletes: perl-suidperl <= 4:5.10.1-118

while my system has perl-suidperl 4:5.10.1-118.fc14 note the fc14 disttag here,
this means the installed version is newer and the obsolete tag
has no effect. Please fix this by changing e.g. to:

Obsoletes: perl-suidperl < 4:5.10.1-119

or something similar with the same effect.

For more background please read this thread on yum-devel:

Thanks for bug report. This will be fixed in next build.

Comment 2 Petr Pisar 2010-07-15 07:37:31 UTC
Thanks for report. We have already spotted the problem.

However I'm not sure this is the right solution. Imagine we release new
perl-suidperl-4:5.10.1-119 in F13, F13 user installs it and then he decides to
upgrade to F14. Things will go wrong. I think

  Obsoletes: perl-suidperl < 4:5.12.1

is more appropriate to avoid my hypothetic scenario. The 4:5.12.1 is first
version where perl-suidperl is missing.

I will discuss it with Marcela, package owner, and we will release F14 perl as
soon as possible.

Comment 3 Terje Røsten 2010-07-15 07:54:56 UTC
Thanks for the quick respons, Obsoletes: perl-suidperl < 4:5.12.1 seems correct.

Comment 4 Petr Pisar 2010-07-15 17:03:42 UTC
Fixed in CVS.
