Doc Text:
The openshift-origin-cartridge-perl source code contained an unnecessary symlink with a missing target. This symlink was packaged into a broken symlink in the build. With this fix, the symlink has been removed from the source code and the broken symlink no longer appears.

Description Jason DeTiberus 2013-06-25 11:08:51 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #977914 +++

Description of problem:
openshift-origin-cartridge-perl has a dangling symlink: File usr/libexec/openshift/cartridges/v2/perl/versions/5.10/metadata is a dangling symlink (to ../shared/metadata/) on noarch

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install package
2. ls -l usr/libexec/openshift/cartridges/v2/perl/versions/5.10/metadata

Actual results:
ls shows broken symlink

Expected results:
symlink should not exist

Additional info:
This looks to be left over from early v2 work where there was a versions/shared/metadata directory that no longer exists.
