Fedora Merge Review: perl-XML-Simple
Initial Owner:

Comment 1 Ruben Kerkhof 2007-07-01 20:53:34 UTC
It might be me, but I tried to checkout perl-XML-Simple, and the FC-5, FC-6, F-7 and devel branches are 
empty. The latest version is 2.14, in the FC-4 branch.

My CVSROOT is set to

Am I doing something wrong?

Comment 2 Robin Norwood 2007-07-02 13:40:36 UTC
I don't think you're doing anything wrong.  It looks like the package was in
extras pre-FC5, but was moved to core in FC5.  I'll request that the package be
added to those branches in CVS.  Thanks for catching this.

Package Change Request
Package Name: 
New Branches: FC-5, FC-6, F-7, devel

Guys, some of the branches for this package were apparently lost when extras was
merged.  Perhaps because the package went from extras -> core.  I assume the
proper thing to do is request that it be added to those branches, like I did
above.  If not, please do whatever the right thing is.

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2007-07-04 01:54:50 UTC
Odd. I see all those branches already there, but they are all completely empty. 
You should be able to import into them... or are you getting an error with that?

Comment 4 Robin Norwood 2007-07-04 04:24:07 UTC
After removing and re-checking-out perl-XML-Simple, I see FC-5, FC-6, F-7, but
no devel.  If you can create a devel branch, I can import a new srpm to those

Comment 5 Jason Tibbitts 2007-07-04 04:27:07 UTC
devel is there, but it's empty.  Make sure you aren't passing -p to your cvs
update (either on the command line or in .cvsrc) because if you pass -p then cvs
will delete the empty directory.

Comment 6 Robin Norwood 2007-07-04 14:40:07 UTC
That was it - I had:

update -d -P

in my .cvsrc

I had to remove the -P, but not the -d.

Comment 7 Robin Norwood 2007-07-04 16:17:22 UTC
ok, imported for F-7 and devel.  It should be there for you now.

Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-10-22 09:17:38 UTC
1)perl as BR is not needed. mock build without it worked successfully.
   remove redundant dependency on perl >= 1:5.6.1

Can we CLOSE this review if package is already built and in rawhide?
