           Summary: RFE: Update perl-Compress-Zlib to 1.37
           Product: Fedora Core
           Version: devel
          Platform: All
               URL: http://search.cpan.org/dist/Compress-Zlib/
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: normal
         Component: perl-Compress-Zlib
        AssignedTo: jorton at redhat.com
        ReportedBy: steve at silug.org

I'm attaching a patch that applies perfectly to rawhide and FC-4 that updates
perl-Compress-Zlib to the latest version, 1.37.  (The latest source is at
http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/P/PM/PMQS/Compress-Zlib-1.37.tar.gz and
builds perfectly.)

The latest amavisd-new is failing to start, complaining about wanting
Compress::Zlib >= 1.35.  Presumably this is because of some of the fixes in
1.35.  Ideally I'd like to see an update to FC-3 and above so I can build
amavisd-new for all of them once it is accepted into Extras, but an update for
at least FC-4 (where I do most of my testing, and what most of my clients are
running) and rawhide would be greatly appreciated.

The following is the changelog for the last 3 versions of Compress::Zlib:

  1.37 - 12 August 2005

      * Change to t/03examples.t for VMS from Abe Timmerman

  1.36 - 3 August 2005

      * Renamed zlib-src-1.2.3 to zlib-src to help VMS

      * Fixed Makefile.PL for VMS

      * Fixed t/03examples.t for VMS

      * Added a couple of notes about incompatibility with Unix compress.

  1.35 - 16 July 2005

      * Updated zlib source to 1.2.3

      * Fixed problem with where two calls to gzclose would hang the debugger.
        See https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=13789

      * Added code from Alexey Tourbin to use XSLoader when available,
        and DynaLoader otherwise.

      * Documented that the compress & uncompress functions were not
        the same as the Unix utilities of the same name.

      * Fixed 05gzsetp -- it left a temp file hanging around. 

      * Integrate core change 24787 - SvUPGRADE returns void in blead

      * Integrate core change 24788 - Makefile.PL adjustments for the core
