Missing dependency test in the RT3.2.3 download - Cache::Simple::TimedExpiry

Just an FYI for archival purposes, if anyone downloads RT3.2.3 from Best
Practical, it is missing a dependency test. This package doesn’t look for
Cache::Simple::TimedExpiry, which is a requirement for 3.2.3. I was
working through a test box setup on this version and during a look through
the rt-test-dependencies program noted Cache Simple TimedExpiry was
missing.

DBIx::SearchBuilder depends on Cache::Simple::TimedExpiry. It should be
pulling it in automatically.

In the real world, yes. But when you’re behind a firewall, not allowed to
ftp, and have to pull the Perl modules down via browser one at a time, one
needs to make sure to get all dependencies. :slight_smile:

(DBI::SB built fine w/o this module too.)

You can always set your CPAN preferences to use an HTTP-based mirror,
if that will work from you…

(In addition, you can use something like CPAN::Mini to create a local
CPAN mirror. Then future module installations are a snap.)

HTTP_PROXY/FTP_PROXY environment variables?

perl Makefile.PL should report that you don’t have some prerequisites.

There is no tests for cacheable records.

Sorry to get so far offtopic on this list, but we cannot download anything
at all w/o prior approval, and it can only be downloaded once (someone
else downloads then emails me the downloads). So I get all the perl mods,
when I go to upgrade I have to request a download of any updated modules
again, wait, and install them by hand one at a time. I can’t set up our RT
servers to automatically pull stuff down, the proxies block http and ftp
downloads.
