Description Paul Bolle 2010-07-25 09:20:41 UTC
Description of problem:
I ran into some minor packaging issues with perlxstut 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. n/a
Actual results:
perlxs docs are part of perl
perlxstut docs are part of perl
neither perl nor perl-devel require perl-Test-Simple

Expected results:
perlxs docs are part of perl-devel
perlxstut docs are part of perl-devel
perl-devel requires perl-Test-Simple

Additional info:
0) While following perlxstut I discoverd Test::More wasn't installed. It turned out that Test::More is provided by perl-Test-Simple (which is only required by perl-core).

1) This command seems to list perlxstut's requirements: 
$ man perlxstut | grep " \+use .*;"
           use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
           use ExtUtils::testlib;
           use Test::More tests => 4;
               use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;

Basically that's ExtUtils::MakeMaker and Test::More.

2) For perlxstut one also needs h2xs. h2xs and friends are part of perl-devel.

3) It seems that both the perlxs docs and the perlxstut docs should be shipped as part of perl-devel and that perl-devel should require perl-Test-Simple or perl(Test::More).

4) Feel free to ask me to provide a (trivial) patch to perl's specfile.

Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2010-07-26 07:27:07 UTC
In manual is mentioned Test::More, but you can use for your xs files different test-suite or don't test at all. I'd rather don't require it.

perlxs* docs will be moved into perl-devel in next rebuild of perl package.
