Fedora Update Notification

Name        : perl-common-sense
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 3.5
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/common-sense
Summary     : "Common sense" Perl defaults
Description :
This module implements some sane defaults for Perl programs, as defined
by two typical (or not so typical - use your common sense) specimens of
Perl coders:

  use strict qw(vars subs);
  use feature qw(say state switch);
  no warnings;

Update Information:

This update, to the latest upstream release from CPAN, includes localization of $^W so that common::sense doesn't get in the way of module authors that choose to use it.

The update also merges the tests sub-package back into the main package.

For the Fedora 15 and EPEL-6 updates, the number of warnings categories enabled by common::sense has been reduced since the previous version, as the warnings have been found to be over-sensitive in some common-sense applications.

* Sat Mar 24 2012 Paul Howarth <paul at city-fan.org> - 3.5-1
- Update to 3.5:
  - Localise $^W, as this causes warnings with 5.16 when some lost soul uses
    -w; common::sense doesn't support $^W, but tries to shield module authors
    and programs from its ill effects
- Don't need to remove empty directories from buildroot
- Drop %defattr, redundant since rpm 4.4
* Sat Jan 21 2012 Paul Howarth <paul at city-fan.org> - 3.4-5
- Obsolete/provide old -tests subpackage to support upgrades
* Thu Jan 19 2012 Paul Howarth <paul at city-fan.org> - 3.4-4
- Reinstate compatibility with older distributions like EL-5
- Drop -tests subpackage (general lack of interest in this), but include
  them as documentation for the main package
- Don't use macros for commands
- Make %files list more explicit
- Use tabs
* Sat Jan 14 2012 Fedora Release Engineering <rel-eng at lists.fedoraproject.org> - 3.4-3
- Rebuilt for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_17_Mass_Rebuild
