Description Roozbeh Pournader 2007-04-16 09:34:07 UTC
Spec URL:
Perl package for Math::Vec support.

Comment 1 Bernard Johnson 2007-05-03 08:11:35 UTC
Maybe change the description to:
"Object-Oriented Vector Math Methods in Perl" which is a little more descriptive
(from the website)

BuildRequires:  perl
is superflous because perl(Module::Build) will automatically pull it in

If you want to enable the pod tests, you might want to:
export TEST_POD=1
./Build test

I believe the preferred license string is "GPL or Artistic" for dual
GPL/Artistic packages.

I will follow up with a review soon.

=== Issues ===
1.  Change license tag to "GPL or Artistic"
2.  Use wget -N or equivalent to download source tarball and preserve timestamp.
3.  Remove BR of perl, superflous since perl(Module::Build) will require perl.
4.  Change description as shown in comment #1

=== Final Notes ===
1.  Perhaps enable pod testing (see comment #1)
