Summary: perl-Term-ProgressBar is missing a dependency on perl-TermReadKey


           Summary: perl-Term-ProgressBar is missing a dependency on
           Product: Fedora
           Version: rawhide
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: medium
          Priority: low
         Component: perl-Term-ProgressBar
        AssignedTo: cweyl at alumni.drew.edu
        ReportedBy: mbooth at redhat.com

    Classification: Fedora
    Target Release: ---

Description of problem:
While perl-Term-ProgressBar can function without Term::ReadKey, it cannot
detect the width of a window, making the progress bar less than entirely
useful. The spec file is relying on automatic dependencies, but doesn't pick up
Term::ReadKey because the source doesn't 'use' it:

  eval {
    require Term::ReadKey;
  }; if ($@) {
    warn "Guessing terminal width due to problem with Term::ReadKey\n";
    return 50;

perl-TermReadKey was previously in limbo, but now seems to be included.
perl-Term-ProgressBar should depend on it, as the experience without it is

I've filed this against rawhide, but it applies equally to F13 and F14.
perl-TermReadKey is now available in all 3 places. I've attached a spec file
