Description Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-05-19 21:24:35 UTC
Spec URL:


PadWalker is a module which allows you to inspect (and even change!)
lexical variables in any subroutine which called you. It will only
show those variables which are in scope at the point of the call.

This is a new requirement of perl-Devel-Cycle 1.05

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2006-05-20 20:42:53 UTC
* package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.  It's not included separately in the
package, but this is not necessary as the upstream tarball does not include it.
* source files match upstream:
   05d684ce2f17ef4f058ec2e912b5f95c  PadWalker-1.0.tar.gz
   05d684ce2f17ef4f058ec2e912b5f95c  PadWalker-1.0.tar.gz-srpm
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* package builds in mock (development, x86_64).
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   perl(PadWalker) = 1.0
   perl-PadWalker = 1.0-1.fc6
   perl >= 0:5.008
   rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
   rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
   rpmlib(VersionedDependencies) <= 3.0.3-1
* shared libraries are present, but internal to Perl so no need to call ldconfig.
* package is not relocatable.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* %check is present and all tests pass:
   All tests successful.
   Files=9, Tests=65,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.11 cusr +  0.07 csys =  0.18 CPU)
* no scriptlets present.
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* no headers.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no libtool .la droppings.
* not a GUI app.

I'd like to see an EPEL-4 branch for this too; I'm happy to maintain it if none of the existing branch maintainers want to do so.

Comment 6 Ralf Corsepius 2011-03-04 12:54:50 UTC
... and I'd like to see PadWalker upgraded to 1.92 for f13 and f14 ;)

No response to EPEL-4 branch request so I'll maintain it myself; existing maintainers on InitialCC list and they're welcome as co-maintainers of course.
