Recent Entries

Thursday 20th November 2014

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-CPAN-Meta-Requirements to 2.130 in Rawhide:

    • from_string_hash can take optional constructor arguments

    • bad_version_hook callback gets module name as well as version string

    • Undefined/empty versions given to from_string_hash or add_string_requirement now carp and are coerced to "0" instead of being fatal; this is more consistent with how the other requirement functions work

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-CPAN-Meta-Requirements to 2.130 as per the Fedora version

  • Updated perl-Perl-Critic-Pulp to 87:

    • RequireFilenameMarkup

    • ConstantBeforeLt allow for PPI incompatible change to ->prototype()

Wednesday 19th November 2014

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-Test-LeakTrace (0.15) in Rawhide to re-enable the pod spelling test during %check, now that a sufficiently recent version of Spellunker is available

  • Updated perl-Object-InsideOut (3.98) in Rawhide to be a bootstrap build, which has no dependency on Math::Random::MT::Auto; this is necessary to bootstrap the perl-Math-Random-MT-Auto package for aarch64, which requires Object::InsideOut itself

    • Added more stopwords
    • Support &amp;

Monday 17th November 2014

Fedora Project

  • Became co-maintainer of perl-Finance-Quote and updated it in F-19, F-20, F-21, Rawhide and EPEL-7 from version 1.20 to version 1.35, which brings in lots of new data sources (including ukfunds, which was what I was interested in) and various bug fixes

  • Branched and built perl-Net-CIDR (0.17) for EPEL-7 (Bug #1163610)

  • Updated perl-SUPER to 1.20141117 in Rawhide:

    • Improved export mechanism
    • Removed useless Exporter tests

    • Improved docs (CPAN RT#79681)

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-DateTime-TimeZone to 1.80:

    • This distro no longer ships the DateTime::TimeZone::Local::Win32 module; instead, it depends on that module when you install DateTime::TimeZone on a Windows system machine

    • Tweaked the warning when loading a zone class from disk that was generated using a different Olson version than the current DateTime::TimeZone module; previously, it said the loaded version was older, but all we know is that it's different (CPAN RT#66097)

  • Updated perl-MooseX-Role-WithOverloading to 0.16:

    • Fix tests that failed due to an interaction between aliased.pm and perl 5.21.6
