Description Paul Howarth 2008-07-07 10:08:06 UTC
The F-9 package of dbxml-perl has modules in "perl 5.8.8" paths,
which are not found by F-9's perl 5.10.0. The package therefore needs rebuilding
for perl 5.10.0.

There was a mass rebuild of perl packages late in the F-9 development period but
this package missed out on it, possibly because it is missing a perl version
"module compat" dependency and hence didn't have broken deps when perl was
upgraded to 5.10.0. In order to avoid a repeat of this problem in the future, I
suggest adding the following dependency to the package (which can be found in
virtually all Fedora perl packages):

Requires: perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_%(eval "`%{__perl} -V:version`"; echo $version))

P.S. If (as I think is the case), the package is licensed under the same terms
as perl itself, the license tag should be "GPL+ or Artistic", not "GPL+ or
Artistic 2.0".
