This package contains Pod::Man and Pod::Text modules which convert POD input
to *roff source output, suitable for man pages, or plain text. It also
includes several sub-classes of Pod::Text for formatted output to terminals
with various capabilities.

This package will dual-live after sub-packing it from main perl in F19.
perl-podlators files have been sub-packaged in perl-5.16.1-234.fc19.
No issues, approving.

Thank you for the review and the repository.
perl-podlators removed from perl-5.16.1-241.fc19.
Why does perl-podlators have explicit requires for:
when it provides these itself?
What is the point of that?
Overwork. I swapped test-time set with run-time set probably.
I will fix it. Thanks for spotting it.
Petr - I'd like to see this in EPEL6. Would you care to maintain it there, or shall I?
I have no objection to you maintaining EPEL6 branch however there is a problem with dual-living the modules: podlators modules are part of RHEL-6 binary perl package, there is no perl-podlators sub-package. You cannot simply package newer versions of the modules because you would get unpredictable yum resolutions. So I think your request is not doable unless Red Hat sub-packages podlators in RHEL-6.
Even if podlators was subpackaged in RHEL, an EPEL package would be replacing it, which is against EPEL rules. So I don't think there's any way this can happen.
Ah, my mistake then. perl-podlators is just not needed for me. Thanks.
