Thank you for your report, this will be fixed in -108

Not fixed in -109, which still has /usr/share/man/man3/version::Internals.3pm.gz
and /usr/share/perl5/version/Internals.pod in the main perl package.

It was fixed only locally, I'll push it into next update.

This issue is present in the RHEL-6 Beta release of perl too - perl-4:5.10.1-106.el6; can it be fixed there as well please?

Comment 6 Petr Šplíchal 2010-09-10 17:38:18 UTC
Verified that version::Internals is now contained in the
perl-version package, both perldoc & man page work as expected:

# rpm -q perl perl-version

# rpm -ql perl | grep -i version

# rpm -ql perl-version

# man version::Internals

       version::Internal - Perl extension for Version Objects

       Overloaded version objects for all modern versions of
       Perl.  This documents the internal data representation and
       underlying code for  See version.pod for daily
       usage.  This document is only useful for users writing a
       subclass of or interested in the gory details.

What IS a version
       For the purposes of this module, a version "number" is a
       sequence of positive integer values separated by one or
       more decimal points and optionally a single underscore.
       This corresponds to what Perl itself uses for a version,
       as well as extending the "version as number" that is
       discussed in the various editions of the Camel book.
