Tuesday 26th May 2015

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-CPAN-Changes to 0.400001 in Rawhide:

    • Accept either UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1 files and decode them
    • Only treat bracketed text if it is on its own line with no other brackets
    • Bump version.pm prereq to make sure it works properly

    • Let long tokens (like URLs) overflow rather than splitting them into multiple lines
    • Don't wrap on non-breaking spaces
    • Clean up packaging
    • Return undef for dates or notes that don't exist

    • Quote meta chars to fix a problem that clobbered dates with timezones due to the '+' char (GH #20)

  • Updated perl-Sysadm-Install to 0.45 in Rawhide:

    • Fixed manifest and tests for the Windows platform
  • Updated perl-parent to 0.233 in Rawhide:

    • The diagnostic about inheriting from ourselves was removed; it served no purpose as Perl already warns if we try to inherit in a circular way
  • Updated perl-Test-RequiresInternet to 0.05 in Rawhide:

Local Packages

  • New package perl-Math-Base-Convert (0.08)

  • Updated perl-CPAN-Changes to 0.400001 as per the Fedora version

  • Updated perl-parent to 0.233 as per the Fedora version

  • Updated perl-SQL-Statement to 1.407:

    • Fix SQL function CONV to use limited number of sane character sets for conversion and rely on Math::Base::Convert instead of own code (CPAN RT#100551)

    • Fix handling of literal identifiers and for every IMPORT rely on literal identifiers to avoid parser errors for column names starting with numbers or similar

    • Fix capability cache: "$class->can(...)" might return undef and therefore non-existent capabilities are queried too often

    • Fix COUNT(DISTINCT col) without GROUP BY clause

    • Fix "parse insert with functions" (GitHub PR#6, CPAN RT#96628)

    • Fix CPAN RT#93320: SQL-style comment can not begin inside quotes

    • Fix CPAN RT#104579: Redundant argument in sprintf

    • Fix CPAN RT#104589: t/14parse.t fails if Test::Deep is not installed

    • Clean up Makefile.PL, meta-data and requirements

    • Reduce blocks and rewrite some inner statements to increase speed of sql command processing
  • I got some strange test failures in Perl 5.8.8 that may be due to updated test dependency packages as the old 1.405 package also now fails to build; I have only built for Fedora 9 onwards as a result of this
  • Updated perl-Test-RequiresInternet to 0.05 as per the Fedora version

  • Updated python-twisted to 15.2.1 (see NEWS for details)

    • Add database NULL documentation

    • Inherit csv attributes in csv() when called in void context

    • Micro-optimisation for combine/print (empty fields will be faster)

Friday 22nd May 2015

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-DateTime-Locale to 0.46:

    • Fixed handling of C locales like "C.UTF-8"; passing these to DateTime::Locale->load would cause a warning followed by an exception, but all "C" locales should be special-cased as an alias of en-US-POSIX (CPAN RT#104574)
