Summary: perl-RPM2 cannot be compile against rpm-4.9.0


           Summary: perl-RPM2 cannot be compile against rpm-4.9.0
           Product: Fedora
           Version: rawhide
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: unspecified
          Priority: unspecified
         Component: perl-RPM2
        AssignedTo: mmaslano at redhat.com
        ReportedBy: ppisar at redhat.com
         QAContact: extras-qa at fedoraproject.org

    Classification: Fedora

rpm-4.9.0_beta1 Changelog:

    - Since rpm 4.1 times, callers are supposed to use the rpmtsFooDB()
      variants instead of the lower-level rpmdb functions, and mixing
      them is not safe. Enforce the use of ts-level versions by making
      rpmdbLink(), rpmdbOpen(), rpmdbInit(), rpmdbClose(),
      rpmdbSync(), rpmdbVerify() and rpmdbRebuild() internal-only.

Thus perl-RPM2 cannot be linked at run-time:

Can't load 'blib/arch/auto/RPM2/RPM2.so' for module RPM2:
blib/arch/auto/RPM2/RPM2.so: undefined symbol: rpmdbOpen at
/usr/lib64/perl5/DynaLoader.pm line 200.

perl-RPM2 uses the old low level function only.

Should we drop this package in favor of (not yet packaged) RPM4?
