           Summary: Review Request: perl-UNIVERSAL-isa - Hack around module
                    authors using UNIVERSAL::isa as a function
           Product: Fedora Extras
           Version: devel
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: normal
         Component: Package Review
        AssignedTo: gdk redhat com

Spec Name or Url:
http://gsd.di.uminho.pt/jpo/software/fedora/perl-UNIVERSAL-isa.spec

SRPM Name or Url:
http://gsd.di.uminho.pt/jpo/software/fedora/perl-UNIVERSAL-isa-0.05-1.src.rpm

Description:
Whenever you use "isa" in UNIVERSAL as a function, a kitten using
Test::MockObject dies. Normally, the kittens would be helpless, but
if they use UNIVERSAL::isa (the module whose docs you are reading),
the kittens can live long and prosper.

This module replaces UNIVERSAL::isa with a version that makes sure
that if it's called as a function on objects which override isa,
isa will be called on those objects as a method.

In all other cases the real UNIVERSAL::isa is just called directly.


Note: new requirement of perl-Test-MockObject
