Description Steven Pritchard 2007-03-13 16:07:46 UTC
Spec URL:
This module provides a Perl interface to the libsyck data serialization
library. It exports the Dump and Load functions for converting Perl data
structures to YAML strings, and the other way around.

Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-03-23 11:44:55 UTC
Mock build log showed
*** WARNING ***

This release breaks compatibility with versions earlier than version 0.60 of
YAML::Syck and when serializing blessed references.

See the COMPATIBILITY file for more information.

As current version of perl-YAML is 0.62, I assume this package will not break
any package dependency in rawhide and in FC6 also.

Comment 2 Steven Pritchard 2007-03-23 15:44:56 UTC
It shouldn't (and hasn't in my light testing).

Steve has been feeling a bit under the weather lately, and asked me to help out
a bit.  I've imported and kicked off builds for this package to remove it as a
blocker to a number of other bugs.

Feel better, Steve! :)

Comment 9 Steven Pritchard 2007-05-23 18:24:03 UTC
