I have just released the first public version of Padre -
Perl Application Development and Refactoring Environment
as a CPAN module.
It is basically an editor with an oversized ego.
I would like to make sure it can easily added to Fedora
and that it will be added.
So I'd like to ask that someone here will pick up the module from CPAN and
try to integrate it into Fedora. If you encounter any issues, I'd be more than
happy to know about them so I can fix them ASAP.
[Sorry this is long - I needed to explain the context]
I'm currently looking at some modifications to the DBIx::Class module
prior to its next CPAN release.
At present there is a startup test and some documentation relating to
issues on RHEL5 (and compatible distributions), which are down to the
perl package bug - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=379791
Unfortunately the startup test used by DBIx::Class cannot determine
between a perl which has the bug and a perl that *could* have the bug
- so it fires on the new RHEL5 perl (which does have the issue fixed),
and the F8 perl (which I think is mostly, but not entirely fixed,
however I've not checked the state of play here).
I cannot find a test, other than a somehwat brutal comparison
benchmark tests, that show whether a perl does have this issue.
Unfortunately a perl with this bug will, under certain circumstances,
run code using DBIx::Class at a speed that makes an arthritic snail
look like a Formula 1 contender....
So I am thinking in terms of:-
- Removing the startup check, as its now mostly useless.
- Adding in a test suite test that properly checks for
the issue, however this will only be seen by people installing
from CPAN that choose to run the tests (and this will of course
include you wonderful packaging people!!!).
- Reworking the documentation on this issue to be more correct.
However this will mean that people using older versions of Fedora (F8
and before that use perl 5.8.8, but without the perl fixes, and RHEL5
using either a version before U2, or U2 without the perl updates) may
get these interesting performance characteristics.
What I am hoping to get from you good people is....
- If you have any magic that I am unaware of for telling the
difference between particular builds of perl 5.8.8 that
would allow me to accurately identify broken perls (unfortunately
the patch identifiers that I could use to do this normally are
not carried through into the RH perl builds).
- Can we ensure that DBIx::Class rpm packages for RHEL5 and F8 (and
previous, except thats out of maintenance anyhow) have a req
on a perl package release which has these issues fully fixed
At present there is no EPEL DBIx::Class package, so some of this stuff
is sort of mute (and the Fedora packages patch out the startup check).
Any suggestions and comments are welcome...
