Description Jonathan Kamens 2005-05-25 02:36:28 UTC
cpan2rpm tries to handle CPAN source files that are .zip rather than .tar.gz, 
but it fails because it tries to call "tar t" on the zip file.  Attached diff 
fixes this.  It's dependent on the diff I submitted in another bug earlier 

I ran the diff with whitespace ignored, so you'll probably want to reindent 
after applying the patch.

This bug hasn't been updated in a long time and targets FE devel.
Could you please check that it still occurs with current FE devel and update
accordingly ?
