Perl team, please bump.
Comment 2 Michael Cummings (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-28 03:19:58 UTC
Added. Tested on sparc and x86, so I can unmask there, but will need other archs before continuing.
Comment 3 Jochen Maes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-28 04:51:15 UTC
stable on ppc
also had to mark MIME-Base64-3.05 stable or repoman complained... (poor thing)

Comment 4 Michael Cummings (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-28 05:40:37 UTC
ok, marked stable on x86 and sparc (should have done it to begin with, sorry folks)
Comment 5 Bryan Østergaard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-30 03:03:50 UTC
Eek! for some reason I forgot to mention that I stabled MIME-tools on alpha yesterday..
Comment 6 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-01 02:27:11 UTC
Do we need a GLSA ? This one is much like the Archive-Zip thing (allow virus detection evasion on some mail scanning systems)... and we issued one for that.
Comment 7 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen gentoo-dev 2004-11-01 03:02:06 UTC
I think we should issue a GLSA for this one as well.
Comment 8 Santiago Gala 2004-11-01 05:09:42 UTC
This version breaks tests (and thus ebuild) of SOAP-Lite. SOAP-Lite builds with 5.413 and 5.414, though

Also, while 5.415 is labelled "ppc", 5.414 is labelled "~ppc", which looks funny.
Comment 9 Michael Cummings (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-02 03:23:06 UTC
We asked ppc to test and unmask this version - hence the jump.

It does *not* break SOAP-Lite-60a-r1. There was a mistake in the ebuild which I corrected this morning and retested. SOAP-Lite-60a-r1 works fine with 5.413 and up, including 5.415. If you can pass me some code that doesn't work I'd be happy to test it out. The tests will fail with the flush because of a flaw in the tests themselves, not SOAP-Lite/MIME-tools interaction.
