Spec URL:
Description: perl-IO-Compress-Base is the new base package for the various IO::Compress module.  The latest version of packages such as perl-Compress-Zlib requires this package.

Comment 1 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2007-02-18 21:28:47 UTC

* IO-Compress-Base-2.003.tar.gz: MD5 digest verified against CPAN tarball

* Package name follows standard
* URL and Source0 urls are valid
* License verified (README file and main POD page)
* perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_xxx) present
* perl vendor libs present
* File permissions are sane
* No active tickets in


* %files section
  and (maybe)

* build requirements
  add the following comments
    #BuildRequires:  perl(Test::Pod)
    #BuildRequires:  perl(Test::NoWarnings)

  Both these modules are available in Extras, but I still
  don't know when the building system will be able to pull
  Extras packages.

* Warning: IO::Compress::Base will be a perl 5.10 core module.

Comment 2 Chris Weyl 2007-03-17 05:23:36 UTC
Silly question, perhaps:  is there a reason this bug's "product" is core, not

(In reply to comment #2)

The update of the core package perl-Compress-Zlib from version 1.42 to version
2.00x will require several new modules (perl-IO-Compress-Base being one of them).


Comment 4 Steven Pritchard 2007-03-17 15:15:38 UTC
I'm going to need this for IO::Compress::Bzip2, which is required by the next 
version of cpanspec.

Unfortunately, the version I submitted as bug 232703 requires 
IO::Compress::Base >= 2.004.  Would you mind bumping the version of this?

Oh, and if the IO::Compress::Base package I submitted in bug 232678 is any 
help, please use it.  (Apparently I missed this when I was searching for 
duplicates because it is a Core review, not an Extras review.)

Comment 5 Robin Norwood 2007-03-21 17:17:38 UTC
ok, I've bumped the version to 2.004, incorporated the changes from comment #1,
and stole some of Steven's %description text from bug #232678


How's that?

Comment 6 Ralf Corsepius 2007-03-22 04:26:30 UTC
Missing: BuildRequires: perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)

Comment 7 Robin Norwood 2007-06-05 18:52:13 UTC
Finally revisiting this - Added the missing BuildRequires pointed out by Ralf:

Putting the review flag back to '?' for jpo to re-approve with this change.

Comment 8 Robin Norwood 2007-06-06 22:09:21 UTC
There are 5 compression-related packages needed for a new Compress::Zlib
(2.004), including this one.  Here are the bugzilla URLs for them: - perl-IO-Compress-Base -
perl-Compress-Raw-Bzip2 - perl-Compress-Raw-Zlib - perl-IO-Compress-Bzip2 - perl-IO-Compress-Zlib

Comment 10 Jason Tibbitts 2007-06-08 21:47:34 UTC
Hmm, this is holding up other packages.  Since jpo has already approved this,
I'll give it a quick once over.
Builds fine in rawhide.  The build dependencies seem OK to me; the tests are all
run save for just one which doesn't seem related to missing build dependencies:
        1/79 skipped: readonly + threads
  All tests successful, 1 subtest skipped.
  Files=4, Tests=155,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.26 cusr +  0.06 csys =  0.32 CPU)

So I think everything's fine here, and I'll go ahead and set fedora-review back
to '+'.
