Description of problem:
perl-Crypt-SSLeay ships own ca-bundle.crt file in the /usr/share/doc/perl-Crypt-SSLeay-<version>. According to the "Last Modified" date in the file, it has not been updated since 2000. It's docs only, but as it's getting quite venerable (lot of certs are expired, other needed today are most likely missing), it should be removed or replaced with a symlink to ca-certificate's one if it's really needed.
I'd like to replace it with a symlink to /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt, as you've suggested... unless somebody has a better idea.
Do you actually expect it to be used anywhere? I suspect it can only get used if someone copies it from /usr/share/doc, but never directly (given the changing directory name). Hence there should be low regression risk if the file is removed completely.
The file is mentioned in the documentation and could be used with the example tools (%doc eg/). I'd rather keep it.
As far as I can see, all references to ca-bundle.crt within the package are of the form certs/ca-bundle.crt, so they can not refer to the file in the doc directory directly.
Yes but that's just where we put the 'certs' directory. It's better than nothing, imo.
perl-Crypt-SSLeay-0.58-7.fc17 ca-bundle.crt now points to ca-certificates ca-bundle.crt ...
