Bug 431080

Summary: app-portage/g-cpan-0.16.4-r1 does not handle quotes in description properly

Description Martin DiViaio 2012-08-12 13:17:06 UTC
In the perl module Lingua::EN::Numbers the description reads:

turn "407" into "four hundred and seven", etc.

g-cpan does not escape the quotes in this phrase so it creates the following line in the ebuild:

DESCRIPTION="turn "407" into "four hundred and seven", etc."

This should be:

DESCRIPTION="turn \"407\" into \"four hundred and seven\", etc."
