I probably find this problem cause - /usr/lib/rpm/perl.req generate
list of perl source requirements, but does his work without deeper
syntax parsing. And in this case was badly interpreted USAGE string
as perl code. There is part of this:
use ident information if available (*)
"calamaris-2.59" stable version, which is in Fedora repo, has
in USAGE string similar line:
-u user (use ident information if available) (*)
but perl.req logic in this case not evaluate it as code, thus things
For now I will slightly modify USAGE string and it solve problem.
Please, should I add entry to Bugzilla, when I built package
which isn't in official Fedora repo?
