Description Paul Howarth 2012-09-05 11:10:43 UTC
The perl-Test-Harness package includes App-Cpan, which is distributed separately upstream and should I think have its own sub-package. This is not a result of  App-Cpan being split out of Test-Harness at some time in the past, but because the globbing in the perl spec file isn't specific enough to include App::Prove but exclude App::Cpan.

The effect of bundling App-Cpan with Test-Harness is quite a large number of additional dependencies.

Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2012-09-05 13:22:33 UTC
I compared files from perl with App-Cpan and with CPAN and both App::Cpan and bin/cpan come from CPAN. So I conclude the only mis-packaged App/Cpan.pm should be moved from perl-Test-Harness to perl-CPAN (both are perl subpackages).

Comment 2 Petr Pisar 2012-09-05 13:25:48 UTC
In other words, there is nothing to go into new perl-App-Cpan subpackage.

(Of course we could split perl-App-Cpan from perl-CPAN to allow dual-lived replacement of App::Cpan from App-Cpan which currently provides the latest bits, but that's different story.)

Comment 3 Paul Howarth 2012-09-05 13:51:45 UTC
I'm happy with App/Cpan.pm moving to perl-CPAN so that perl-Test-Harness doesn't pull in perl-CPAN and all of its dependencies.
