Re: Spilt libperl from perl

Warren Togami wrote:
During the last FESCO meeting there was (reluctant?) agreement that splitting libperl.so from perl would be a better solution to workaround our broken multilib policy than to split perl sub-packages out of everything that breaks due to perl.i386 being removed from F7 x86-64.

Is this going to happen?

In today's Release Engineering meeting, it was decided that the libperl multilib conflicts are a Test4 blocker. So we need to split libperl.so into a sub-package.

The attached patch could theoretically do this, but I haven't been able to make a successful build.

This patch is also sub-optimal in that the defined compat version dirs need to be modified manually in yet another part of the spec whenever they change. I thought about using a filelist to allow dynamic generation of this based on %{perlmodcompat}, but there does not seem to be a way to use a filelist in %exclude of the main perl package to make this possible
