Issue #1530 has been updated by Bayard Bell.
Assignee changed from OI PKG to OI illumos
Priority changed from Normal to High
This allows broken packaging to go unnoticed, and having dependencies on 5.8.4 survive means that removing the placeholder package actually breaks onu. This was fixed upstream as illumos issue 1521, which has since been integrated.
Bug #1530: perl-584 should be obsoleted rather than renamed
Author: Bayard Bell
Assignee: OI illumos
Category: Release Engineering
Target version: oi_151_stable
OI dealt with the removal from runtime/perl-584 by maintaining a manifest for that renamed it to 510. This was intended to deal with the removal by providing a smooth transition path, but it now looks to be masking other bugs, as recently turned out to be the case with some Illumos manifests. (The Illumos issues is #1521, and those changes, now pending developer@ review, will need to be pulled into the OI illumos-gate once integrated upstream.)
OI will need to make a change to its illumos-gate used in 151, marking the 5.8.4 runtime as obsolete rather than renamed, which can be expected to break some things and reveal bugs in the process.
