As i'n not licensed to give formal reviews, i can only give an informal one:

rpmlint comes out clean for both SRPM and SPEC:
>[makerpm@Fafnir REVIEW]$ rpmlint perl-pod2pdf-0.42-1.fc18.src.rpm 
>1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.
>[makerpm@Fafnir REVIEW]$ rpmlint perl-pod2pdf.spec
>0 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

The package does not build, giving the following error:
>ERROR: Command failed: 
> # ['/usr/bin/yum-builddep', '--installroot', '/var/lib/mock/fedora-rawhide->i386/root/', '/var/lib/mock/fedora-rawhide->i386/root///builddir/build/SRPMS/perl-pod2pdf-0.42-1.fc18.src.rpm']

This bug depends on perl-Paper-Specs review, #834991.

Everything seems ok here :)

We all do them :)

Anyhow, the package seems alright except for one detail:

TODO: ./bin/pod2pdf is not tested, therefore you don't have to buildrequire its dependencies -- perl(Getopt::ArgvFile), perl(Getopt::Long), and perl(File::Spec::Functions).

This is not blocking, however.
