Description Paul Howarth 2012-04-05 12:41:41 UTC
perl-POE buildrequires and requires perl(POE::Test::Loops), which of course requires perl(POE) itself. This will be a problem when it comes to bootstrapping perl 5.16.

The test suite skips affected tests if POE::Test::Loops is not present, so omitting it is not a big problem.

The explicit runtime dependency on POE::Test::Loops is also debatable, and in fact there is an explicit exclude in the spec to prevent that module being picked up as an automatic dependency (see Bug #632855), so I believe that should go too (it would have to for bootstrapping anyway, otherwise perl-POE-Test-Loops would not be bootable).

Suggested changes:

Comment 1 Petr Šabata 2012-04-05 14:03:37 UTC
The exclude is there to filter the underspecified dependency but I agree it should be removed completely.

I'll apply your suggested changes.
