2012-03-24 - Paul Howarth <> - 3.5-1
- Update to 3.5:
- Localise $^W, as this causes warnings with 5.16 when some lost soul uses
-w; common::sense doesn't support $^W, but tries to shield module authors
and programs from its ill effects
- Don't need to remove empty directories from buildroot
- Drop %defattr, redundant since rpm 4.4
2012-01-21 - Paul Howarth <> - 3.4-5
- Obsolete/provide old -tests subpackage to support upgrades
2012-01-19 - Paul Howarth <> - 3.4-4
- Reinstate compatibility with older distributions like EL-5
- Drop -tests subpackage (general lack of interest in this), but include
them as documentation for the main package
- Don't use macros for commands
- Make %files list more explicit
- Use tabs
