> BuildRequires: perl >= 1:5.6.1

I'm on the fence over whether BR: perl should be included for perl modules. 
It's currently on the ForbiddenItems page, so I'm going to go with not, until
such time as it's removed or an exception is made for perl modules.

- README not in %doc

The README is in POD format.  Maybe pass it through pod2text in %prep?

- no license text in %doc

I let the last few slide without this because I was under the (obviously false)
impression that Perl modules, not being shipped with a license themselves, could
ignore this.  As mentioned in bug 166251, adding

  perldoc -t perlartistic > Artistic
  perldoc -t perlgpl > COPYING

in %prep and then adding them to %doc will do the job without the need to change
anything more than the spec file.

> $ grep -r 'use base' *
> lib/Class/Accessor/Chained/ base 'Class::Accessor::Fast';
> lib/Class/Accessor/ base 'Class::Accessor';
[irrelevant results snipped]

=> explicit requires needed for perl(Class::Accessor) and


- make called without %{_smp_mflags}

- %description is just %{summary}

I haven't mentioned it before, but I usually use the first paragraph or two from
the DESCRIPTION section of the main module's POD.  It's usually fitting.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-08-29 03:36:50 UTC
Somehow I missed this one. Apologies.

-3 fixes all the items listed above.



Comment 3 Chris Grau 2005-08-30 02:00:24 UTC
Two minor items:

- You used %{_smp_mflags} instead of %{?_smp_mflags}.  My fault.  I realize that
I made the typo in my review.

- No changelog entry for -3.

Those can be cleaned up post-import.  Approved.
