Perl 5.24 rebuild finished

Jitka Plesníková, 2016-05-19T18:42:02

we have finished all Perl packages:

   2869 all
   2856 done
         8 failed
         5 unsatisfied dependencies

I'll ask rel-engs to merge f25-perl build-root into f25 build-root

I'll check after merge if all updated packages are rebuilt against Perl 
5.24. If not I'll do it.

Lists of built/failed/unsatisfied packages are at

I was fixing some bugs during the rebuild and I will continue with
investigating and possible fixing the rest of the packages.

List of failed packaged with links to Bugzilla and other statistics are at

I want to thank everybody who helped in this rebuild.

[ANN] Release of Bugzilla 5.0.3, 4.4.12, and 5.1.1

David Lawrence, 2016-05-16T16:08:00
  Today we are releasing 5.0.3, 4.4.12, and the unstable
development snapshot 5.1.1.

  Bugzilla 5.0.3 is our latest stable release. It contains several
important bug fixes and a security fix for the 5.0 branch.

  Bugzilla 4.4.12 is a security fix update for the 4.4 branch. It
also contains several useful bug fixes.

  Note that 5.1.1 is an unstable development release and should not
be used in production environments. We are not yet feature-frozen at
this time so the features you see in 5.1.1 might not accurately
represent the behavior that 6.0 will have.

  Bugzilla is a "Defect Tracking System" or "Bug-Tracking System."
Defect Tracking Systems allow individuals or groups of developers
to keep track of outstanding bugs in their product effectively.
Most commercial defect-tracking software vendors charge enormous
licensing fees. Despite being "free", Bugzilla has many features
its expensive counterparts lack. Consequently, Bugzilla has quickly
become a favorite of thousands of organizations across the globe, and
is widely regarded as one of the top defect-tracking systems available.

Perl 5.24 upgrade

Jitka Plesníková, 2016-05-13T10:57:27

Perl 5.24 change should be discussed on FESCO meeting today.
If they accept it, Perl 5.24 mass rebuild can start. In this case I will
start rebuild tomorrow morning and you can be notified via mail
about commits and builds in next days.

I have acquired `f25-perl' build-root for this purpose.

Please do not build anything into `f25-perl'. Boot-strapping core
modules is very peculiar. I also track all changes. You can do your
upgrades into rawhide freely in parallel.

You can check status on Perl 5.24 change page

Test2-based Test-Simple

Paul Howarth, 2016-05-11T14:11:09
Upstream has now released a Test2-based version of Test-Simple as a 
stable release, bundling Test2. I have a package update ready to go for 
Rawhide (only) but I'm holding off probably until Monday morning to see 
if upstream invokes a contingency plan (see 
in the event of severe problems with this major refactoring of a module 
in very widespread use.

The new package will obsolete/provide the existing perl-Test2 package.

Multiple failed builds in f25 due to EXTERN.h: No such file or directory

Jan Pazdziora, 2016-04-19T08:28:47

koschei reported failed builds on f25 on numerous packages last night.
They all seem to have the common cause

	fatal error: EXTERN.h: No such file or directory
	 #include "EXTERN.h"
	compilation terminated.

The build logs I look at are:

What is the guidance for addressing the issue?

RFC: cpanspec recursive building of deps & using docker

Jeff Fearn, 2016-04-15T16:17:13
I have been working on modifications to cpanspec to support using
--build and --follow at the same time [1][2]. Basically it creates a yum
repo and builds and adds packages to that then installs them to make
sure they work properly.

Now that’s fine if you don’t mind installing everything on your current
OS, but what about if you want to do it for a different OS? Well, it can
use Docker for that!

The task I used to test this on was getting Net::SAML2 [3] built for
RHEL-7, there area lot of old, crusty modules missing on RHEL & EPEL 7
for this module. I’m pretty happy with how it works ATM. Tested it on
Fedora22 as well, added full dnf support to make that run without a
bunch of warnings.

I had to do a lot of changes to get this working, so the code is very

It uses ~/cpanspec/image/$runname to share with the docker container as
work_dir, so at the end of a run you have ~/cpanspec/image/$runname/repo
which you can put on a website and use on other hosts.

The code isn’t 100% yet, quite a few FIXMEs and I want to split out the
per module hacks in to a configuration file so it’s easier to manage and
also so people can supply their own config file to add/override those.

What I'd like is some feed back on the concept, the code itself, and any
problems anyone has if they give it a test.

I tried to contact upstream but didn't get a reply, so this might be a
surprise to Steve if he reads this ;)

Cheers, Jeff.

2: git clone --branch devel git(a)
3: Net::SAML2 is what we hope to use for SSO in Bugzilla.

P.S. If you are trying to run from a git clone you need to do something
like this:

$ cd $git_co_dir
$ ./cs-docker --build --docker_dir ./Dockerfiles --image fedora22
$ ./cs-docker --create --image fedora22 --file gdome2-0.8.0-1.src.rpm
--module Net::SAML2 &> saml2.log

P.P.S It currently uses a dirty hack to get cpanspec on to the docker
image, that won;t be necessary once all the deps are in fedora/epel.
