Description Ralf Corsepius 2005-08-10 15:40:18 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:

Tainted data is data that comes from an unsafe source, such as the command
line, or, in the case of web apps, any GET or POST transactions. Read the
perlsec man page for details on why tainted data is bad, and how to untaint
the data.

When you're writing unit tests for code that deals with tainted data, you'll
want to have a way to provide tainted data for your routines to handle, and
easy ways to check and report on the taintedness of your data, in standard
Test::More style.

Could you build this package for FC3 and FC4?

Done ... bad timing. First, the branch request took some time to be processed,
then I had been off-line ...
