Description Chris Weyl 2007-03-15 03:07:52 UTC
Another fun circular BR loop :)

Though this is seen when trying to rebuild perl-Module-Build:

perl-Module-Build BR's perl(Pod::Readme)
perl-Pod-Readme BR's perl(Test::Pod::Coverage)
perl-Test-Pod-Coverage BR's perl(Pod::Coverage)
perl-Pod-Coverage BR's perl(Module::Build)

Since Test::Pod::Coverage is a developer test, and not needed for the build of
perl-Pod-Readme, can we drop it as a BR to this package?

Comment 1 Steven Pritchard 2007-11-27 14:59:52 UTC
Haven't we broken this circular dependency already by not BR'ing Pod::Readme in
Module::Build (bug #215558)?

Comment 2 Chris Weyl 2008-03-11 02:21:58 UTC
Sounds good to me...
