Subject: catalyst.pl requires Catalyst::Helper

Given that catalyst.pl requires Catalyst::Helper, and is more of a "development" script... Doesn't it make sense to ship catalyst.pl in the Catalyst-Devel distribution instead?

This is done for historical reasons, because the Catalyst distribution used to include both Runtime and Devel. We feel it's less confusing to inform the user that he needs devel to use catalyst.pl, than to remove it from the core distribution.

That's not an unreasonable approach, but it makes things difficult from a packager point of view. E.g., from an rpm and dependency perspective, if catalyst.pl is in perl-Catalyst-Runtime, that will cause perl-Catalyst-Runtime to require perl-Catalyst-Devel. But perl-Catalyst-Devel requires perl-Catalyst-Runtime to build, which is uninstallable w/o perl-Catalyst-Devel... For Fedora, I'm actually taking the route of not packaging catalyst.pl with perl-Catalyst-Runtime, but providing it in the perl-Catalyst-Devel package so all dependencies are satisfied nicely. It's not like catalyst.pl could be run w/o Catalyst::Helper (in perl-Catalyst-Devel) anyways. I'm just saying :) -Chris -- Chris Weyl Ex astris, scientia

This ticket has been open a year. As this is not really a bug report, the discussion should be continued on the catalyst-dev mailing list should you wish to pursue it. Thank you.
