Description Remi Collet 2006-11-25 10:00:44 UTC
Spec URL:
Mock Log:
This is version 1.05 of Apache::AuthDBI and Apache::DBI.

These modules are supposed to be used with the Apache server together with
an embedded perl interpreter like mod_perl. They provide support for basic
authentication and authorization as well as support for persistent database
connections via Perl's Database Independent Interface (DBI).

o provides persistent database connections:
  - connections can be established during server-startup
  - configurable rollback to ensure data integrity
  - configurable verification of the connections to avoid time-outs.

o provides authentication and authorization:
  - optional shared cache for passwords to minimize database load
  - configurable cleanup-handler deletes outdated entries from the cache

Apache::DBI has been in widespread deployment on many platforms for
years.  Apache::DBI is one of the most widely used mod_perl related
modules.  It can be considered stable.

I'm not used to package PERL extension, but this one is needed by a project i work on (ocsinventory).

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2006-11-25 10:19:57 UTC
The perldoc generated license files are not needed, and should go.  Instead, it
would be a good idea to ask upstream to include license files in the distribution.

Improved Summary suggestion: Persistent database connections with Apache/mod_perl

How about a "Requires: mod_perl"?  I'm not sure if this package would work at
all without it, but I suppose at least it's not that useful without it.

OPTIMIZE="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS" should go, this is a noarch package.

Include traces.txt and eg/ in docs?  Remember to do something like this in %prep:
    %{__perl} -pi -e 's|/usr/local/bin/perl|%{__perl}|' eg/
    chmod 644 eg/

It can be used in cgi mode, so without mod_perl (ok, not very usefull).
Other perl-Apache extension didn't require it too.

Mock Log:

- no more perldoc
- no more OPTIMIZE
- traces.txt & eg/ add to %doc
- Improved Summary
