UUID::Tiny is a lightweight, low dependency Pure Perl module for UUID
creation and testing. This module provides the creation of version 1 time
based UUIDs (using random multicast MAC addresses), version 3 MD5 based
UUIDs, version 4 random UUIDs, and version 5 SHA-1 based UUIDs.

Comment 1 Michael S. 2012-11-23 21:04:30 UTC
Seems there is no copy of the license, can you ask to upstream to add it ?

Also, i see :
Requires:       perl(Digest::SHA1)

Shouldn't it be autodetected ?

Otherwise, it is good enough to be pushed, so approved.

Sure I can. I'll do.

It should, but it is not. Don't know exactly how it works, but the documentation says, it is need at the runtime.


I think (but I am new to this and never used Perl), it isn't autodetected because it is in eval statement.

Quick look into /lib/UUID/Tiny.pm says gives me clue, there is a dependency on either one of those:

Digest::SHA1, Digest::SHA or Digest::SHA::PurePerl

The code to determinate what module to use (lines 12-23) blocks the autodetection.

Comment 3 Michael S. 2012-11-24 00:14:53 UTC
yeah, that's likely the reason ( usually, i take a look instead of asking, but I am lazy tonight :/ ). Rpm is not smart enough to fully understand perl code ( even if parsing meta.yml would be smarter ).
