Subject: Dependency on IPC::Open3 1.0103 breaks install on 5.12
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 430b
The metadata for Carp shows a requirement of IPC::Open3 >= 1.0103, which gets picked up RPM specfile generators, resulting an unbuildable spec. When I removed the version requirement and used the version that shipped with 5.12 (1.05), all tests came out fine. Since it's only a test dependency, if there's a platform issue requiring a newer version of IPC::Open3 on some platforms, it might be better to simply skip the test.

As 5.12 ships with IPC::Open3 1.05, it is very easy to satisfy Carp's dependency on IPC::Open3 >= 1.0103. I would indeed expect all tests to succeed under those circumstances, where you have in fact met its declared dependencies. The only thing that's wrong here, apparently, is your RPM ecosystem failing to recognise that the dependency is satisfied. -zefram

Indeed, this looks like a bug in my not-clever-enough version recognition algorithm (now fixed by normalizing everything with version.pm) and an extended brain fart on my part to not have recognized it. Sorry to have wasted your time with this.
