Packaging, packaging and packaging.

[ #1652 ]

Yesterday and today were good days.

Actually, this was a good week. I've added something like 15 new Perl packages to Conectiva Linux. The ones I've used in São Paulo plus some other interesting packages related to XML, databases, text manipulation, graphics, etc.

I wished that module authors made more complex tests optional (e.g. Catalog's connection test) and made everything configurable through environment variables. It would make packaging Perl modules into RPM or other packaging system easier.
