Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 19:36:56 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 20:10:26 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 3 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2013-08-12 11:49:49 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 7 pjp 2014-12-03 18:22:22 UTC
Hello jplesnik,

Could you please fix this soon?

Comment 8 Petr Pisar 2014-12-04 08:46:34 UTC
She cannot. This "vulnerability" is an underspecified security enhancement request that could break compatibility. Therefore we are not going to patch it without upstream consent. Please aim your effort in the upstream bug report <https://rt.perl.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=110730>.

Comment 9 pjp 2014-12-05 14:15:16 UTC

It's been more then 3 yrs since the issue was found and reported. Since there is no fix in sight, please close this bug as CLOSE DEFERRED with due comments about it.

Comment 10 Petr Pisar 2014-12-05 14:25:35 UTC
This has to be fixed by upstream to assure consistent behaviour between Fedora and the rest of the world.
