Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 820663
update of Finance::Quote
Last modified: 2014-03-17 01:58:31 EDT
I was asked to rebase this package to the latest upstream version. There are no new releases on cpan, but they are on github:
Also SUSE has quite few new patches:
Bill, I'm quite surprised that you are the maintainer of Perl package. If you want to get rid of it, someone from Perl SIG could take it.
I maintain it b/c I own the only thing that uses it (GnuCash).
SuSE had contacted me about joining their package as the 'new' upstream source a while back, I just hadn't gotten around to switching it yet. AFAIK, the github mentioned hasn't really been updated much.
The latest upstream is not same as SUSE. I'm looking at their patches and the most life upstream on github.
The problem are failing test suites. It looks like no one was running them or no one was trying them with latest Perl. I'll try to fix it and contact github developer.
Would this be a duplicate of #807072?
It might be.
I was looking on a new upstream git, which had less failures https://github.com/pfenwick/finance-quote ,but some tests are still failling and some patches are different or missing. If you are willing to test it, it would help. I'd rather don't broke currently working things.
Ok, I finally prepared srpm. Peter would you mind to test it with gnucash? I'm not using it.
My version is snapshot from the upstream github and few patches from Debian and few from OpenSUSE. It seems to me some online tests are working just sometimes. Some tests stopped working (financecanada), but they didn't work well even before.
Marcela - do you want to apply for comaintainership? I can give perl-sig commit access in pkgdb, but I don't know if that accomplishes anything as that's not a user account.
Marcela: You're right! The tests, they fail a little bit ;)
Failed 24/52 test programs. 267/728 subtests failed.
Even with disabling the tests, the function still doesn't seem to work for me, but maybe that's because of AUD the errors (my default currency)

Bill, I'm a provenpackager, but I can be even comaintainer. The SIG group doesn't work for commits, it's currently used only for CC'ing all bugzillas.

I looked on those online failing tests and they are failing less than before or they didn't work properly even before.
Try this srpm: http://mmaslano.fedorapeople.org/bugy/perl-Finance-Quote-1.17-10.20120515git811c96.fc16.src.rpm
I've added patches, which were mentioned in Debian. They fixed issues for more than one currency if I understand German ;-)

Please, would you spin an update to version 1.18 that was released back in September 30. It should fix this issue as well, and as affected person I'd be glad to test it. :)
2012-Sep-30 Release 1.18 is available both from CPAN and Sourveforge. It solves most used module errors.
Hm, I need to review ~20 patches if they are sort of in.
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:

Oh hey, I had forgotten about this bug until I updated to F20 and GnuCash was on the 'featured' list of the in-distro Software Installer.
Did Bill and Marcela sort out the comaint as referenced in #comment8?
To answer myself in #comment15
Just got the update gnucash to 2.6.1, it continues to be unable to handle any currency apart from what one sets as default.
Checked perl-Finance-Quote's changelog,
* Sun Aug 4 22:00:00 2013 Petr Pisar <email@example.com> - 1.17-13
- Perl 5.18 rebuild
I guess the answer to my question is no.
Kinda hoping this gets fixed for RHEL7 desktops. I can't do much apart from test, my Perl knowledge died sometime late last century. But I can offer to help.
Paul Fenwick's repository has moved to https://github.com/pjf/finance-quote And there have been recent updates there. OpenSUSE seem to have moved their URLs around too, not too sure what I'm looking at there. Might see what I can hack together next weekend, no promises. Any tips/advice welcome though :)
There's a 1.19 release very recently due to Yahoo breaking.... I'll get that pulled in shortly where appropriate.
