Description Lubomir Rintel 2008-06-15 12:57:11 UTC


This module makes it trivial to generate random strings.

Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-06-18 10:02:56 UTC
build failed
check for missing BuildRequires:  perl(Test::More)

Comment 2 Lubomir Rintel 2008-06-23 08:07:55 UTC
Hm, on my el5 perl(Test::More) is provided by core perl package. Thsi is most
likely used only for testing, so I'll just disable the tests for newer Fedoras,
I'll just have to find out which ones.

Comment 3 Lubomir Rintel 2008-06-23 08:14:28 UTC
Oh -- now I get it, while looking at build logs. It is indeed that Test::More
used to be provided by core perl package, but no longer is. Fixed package:
