           Summary: RFE: Update Test::More
           Product: Fedora Core
           Version: fc4
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: normal
         Component: perl
        AssignedTo: wtogami at redhat.com
        ReportedBy: rc040203 at freenet.de

Description of problem:
The Test::More module (version 0.47, probably from the Test::Simple 0.47
distribution) being shipped with FC4's perl is too old to be usable for building
some newer perl-dists/modules, because newer perl dists start to depend on newer
of Test::More rsp. Test::Simple.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I'd propose to:
1. Update Test::Simple for FC4 (Current is 0.60)
2. To split out Test::Simple into a separate perl-Test-Simple package for FC5

ATM, this issue prevents me from submitting perl-packages to FE, and having to
resort to either
* submitting older versions of perl dists.
* switch off perl packages' test suites (Test::More is primarily used for tests
when building perl packages)
