|Subject:||Confused by inconsistent tagging in git|
I tried to install perl-5.8.1 from git by checking out the tag. $ git co perl-5.8.1 HEAD is now at 0203dfd... Here goes nothing. $ perlbrew install . Use of uninitialized value $dist_name in string eq at /usr/local/perl/5.10.1/lib/site_perl/5.10.1/App/perlbrew.pm line 220. The problem is perlbrew is only looking for v5.x.y style tags. Before 5.11 it was perl-5.x.y. The regex on line 200 should be updated to take that into account. Or even better, add consistent tags to the perl repository.
