Subject [jira] [Commented] (THRIFT-4416) Perl CPAN Packaging Improvements
Date Sat, 09 Dec 2017 17:08:00 GMT


James E. King, III commented on THRIFT-4416:

Pull request is out - I have repackaged 0.10.0 and packaged 0.11.0 and I have to wait until
Tuesday (12/12) when the existing files are deleted on CPAN, then I can upload the replacements.

> The perl library has a few files and a shell script designed to automate the production
of a perl package for CPAN.  It mostly works, however:
> 1. CPAN cannot parse the package version references we use when we point to lib/
from other packages.  This is fixed by adding a provides{} stanza to META.json.
> 2. Users of CPAN don't care about anything but obtaining the "Thrift" package that contains
all the others, so identifying the others (like Thrift::BinaryProtocol) is not necessary.
 This is done by adding a provides{} stanza to META.json.
> 3. The CPAN package no longer needs the META.yml file, as META.json is sufficient.
> 4. These changes were made by hand to the 0.11.0 package before uploading to CPAN.  This
needs to be automated.
