Description Marius Feraru 2005-05-21 10:38:24 UTC
Looks like a good start for FC4 as it already integrates many fixes and modules updates that should ease fixing some of the current perl related problems in Fedora Core devel branch. Check out perldelta for details: http://search.cpan.org/~nwclark/perl-5.8.7-RC1/pod/perl587delta.pod Hm, as with the mod_perl 2.000_00 release, questions raise if these could be quickly integrated into the future FC4 release (along with rebuilding/updating all current perl related packages from FC - at least as to avoid "backward compatible" @INC pollution)... hope this could be feasible as IMHO it would make future perl related errata releases for FC4 much less painful, leaving the patch backporting trouble to Fedora Legacy team ;-)

1) Perl 5.8.7 final is expected in less than one week Source: 5.8.7 RC1 announcement in use.perl.org http://use.perl.org/articles/05/05/20/123238.shtml?tid=6&tid=16 2) regarding mod_perl 2.0.0 The perl package has been patched to include CGI.pm 3.10 (5.8.6-14). The final mod_perl 2.0.0 version is expected to be in FC4. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=158354 if you can help test it 3) @INC pollution. Yes. There are still half a dozen perl modules last built with perl 5.8.5.
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-05-21 21:58:20 UTC
#2 is not certain, rel-eng would need to approve it, and it is most likely they would reject it from FC4 final because it isn't release critical. If that is the case we will push it immediately as an update. #3 I don't consider this to be a problem.
Comment 3 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-05-31 01:56:32 UTC
Perl 5.8.7 is out! http://search.cpan.org/~nwclark/perl-5.8.7/ PerlDelta (from 5.8.6) http://search.cpan.org/~nwclark/perl-5.8.7/pod/perl587delta.pod The main problem is that nothing has been uploaded to the CPAN master mirror for the last 24/36 hours.
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-05-31 02:00:18 UTC
Not a huge problem, because we need to change many things and properly test the SRPM a bit before adding it to rawhide in order to avoid breaking things.
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2005-06-12 20:42:19 UTC
Now is the time to put 5.8.7 into rawhide, although doing so may be a bit non-trivial because of all the custom patches we have in the SRPM now.
Comment 6 Robert Scheck 2005-07-06 17:20:19 UTC
Warren, neither in CVS nor in Rawhide is perl 5.8.7 (as of today); perl-3:5.8. 6-15 is currently the latest available version in CVS/Rawhide...
Comment 7 Warren Togami 2005-07-06 21:27:31 UTC
https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-perl-devel-list Please participate here and help jpo with fixing the package if you want it to happen sooner. jpo had it half done last I asked.
Comment 8 Warren Togami 2005-07-12 03:18:12 UTC
Shouldn't we get this into rawhide before upgrading the other submissions in FC5?
