Description Christopher Meng 2014-02-13 05:23:57 UTC

My module WebService::Linode requires Module::Build::Tiny 0.34 at least, not sure if you can update.


Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2014-02-13 09:51:17 UTC
Can't do it I'm afraid. Versions beyond 0.028 that's in EPEL-7 require TAP::Harness 3.29 or later (for TAP::Harness::Env), and RHEL-7 ships with TAP::Harness 3.28. Red Hat are unlikely to respond favourably to a request to update that for much the same reasons that it wasn't updated in Fedora 20 (see Bug #1018157).

Fortunately, the requirement for the latest version of Module::Build::Tiny is not usually a real one. The dependency is almost always a result of upstream's use of  Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ModuleBuildTiny, which adds a dependency on the version of Module::Build::Tiny on the upstream author's system at the time of doing the release. It's usually the case that patching the version requirement down to 0.028 will result in a working build.

Comment 2 Paul Howarth 2014-02-19 16:58:40 UTC
Following a discussion with upstream, I have found a way to update Module::Build::Tiny in F-20 and EPEL-7. First, though, somebody needs to review a perl-TAP-Harness-Env package (Bug #1067098).

Comment 3 Paul Howarth 2014-02-27 14:44:17 UTC
Module::Build::Tiny version 0.035 (current upstream release) is now available for EPEL-7.
