Subject: Data::Alias is broken with 5.12.0
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 888b
Hi, this is a heads up that Data::Alias, an optional dependency of Data-Visitor, is broken on Perl 5.12.0. Details are at [rt.cpan.org #36165]. AFAICS, the only functionality used by Data-Visitor is Data::Alias::deref(), which seems to work fine on 5.12.0 after fixing a couple of simple compilation problems. As fixing the other parts of Data-Alias is looking hard, perhaps a viable way forward would be to switch Data-Visitor to use something else for similar functionality or, alternatively, break deref() out of Data-Alias into a separate distribution and make Data-Visitor use that? FWIW, a related Debian bug is http://bugs.debian.org/578547 and Data-Visitor is the only package in Debian that uses Data-Alias. On CPAN, I'm aware of at least Method::Signatures using the broken parts of Data-Alias. Many thanks for your work, -- Niko Tyni (Debian Perl group) ntyni@debian.org

Since v0.19 is Data::Alias removed from Makefile.PL, but it's still required in code. Not sure how this should be working now, but I'll do rebuild of Data::Visitor without Data::Alias in Fedora. Also we don't need it as requirement of other packages.
