Re: Removing perl from the build

2009-03-13 Thread Peter Robinson
Hi Chris,

 I've gone through what's been pulling in the perl dependency and
 narrowed down the packages that are dependant on it to the following
 list. There's a number of easy fix ones and two that I need to dig
 further on. The first four should be a matter of just blocking them
 out of the kickstart file.

 w3m
 logwatch
 lftp
 fbset

 This one is because cronie wants a mailer. Daniel and I fixed this one
 on joyride by explicitly adding ssmtp (a 50K mailer)
 exim

 These two will be a little more interesting. I'm going to file some
 bugs against them. The second one I can't see why it needs perl. The
 first one we'll see.
 deltarpm
 libgnomeprint22

 As a followup to this email I filed bugs for the two issues above, I
 was given permission to fix libgnomeprint22 (BZ 489227) which has been
 done and should show up in the next rawhide. Still awaiting response
 for the deltarpm one (BZ 489231). I can create a patch for the
 kickstart if that makes it easier for you too.

As another follow up to this the gnome-python2-evince package (needed
from sugar-read) incorrectly required evince-devel which in turn pulls
in a chunk of the devel stack plus perl, I've filed RH bug 490112 to
get this fixed so hopefully it should be done before too long. If you
think its work doing quickly it might be worthwhile adding it to the
F11Beta tracker.

Continuing the thread by talking to myself. This has been fixed and
I've asked if we can get it tagged into the F11 beta.
