Update MARC::Record to 2.0.3
Last modified: 2012-06-25 20:56:57 EDT
Description of problem:
The current packaged version of MARC::Record in F17 is 2.0.0 (which was released in 2007). Due to bug fixes in upstream since then, software such as Evergreen (http://evergreen-ils.org) that depends on it has to install MARC::Record from CPAN on Fedora.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install perl-MARC-Record
perl-MARC-Record-2.0.0-11 is installed.
perl-MARC-Record-2.0.3-1 (or later) should be installed.
I have posted a SPEC and SRPM for MARC::Record 2.0.3 (based on http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/gitweb/?p=perl-MARC-Record.git) at http://bzr.coffeecode.net/scratch/perl-MARC-Record-2.0.3/ per http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_an_RPM_package and tested the results with rpmlint.
My apologies if this is overkill; I couldn't find a process for simply requesting an update and thought going through the process of building the package might be of some assistance.
Updated the spec and srpm file at:
... via an overhauled spec file that removes a number of the anachronisms that I've been learning about thanks to Iain Arnell's reviews (like 829860 and 829865) and adds explicit BuildRequires entries.
Also, added a missing BuildRequires entry for Data::Dumper that otherwise caused the build to fail in koji.
Not a problem anymore: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4153334
Per Iain Arnell's suggestion in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=829865#c3 , I'm willing to be added as a co-maintainer of this package. I've therefore asked to be granted commit & approveacls access over in pkgdb.
