Description Peter Robinson 2012-11-03 14:27:20 UTC
samba-4.0.0-163.fc18.fc4 pulls in perl-Parser-Yapp which in tern pulls in the entire perl stack.

This adds quite a large new dependency that we never use to need.

Comment 1 Andreas Schneider 2012-11-05 13:42:37 UTC
Ups, yes. Only samba4-pidl should require it.
