From @eserte

This is a bug report for perl from slaven@​rezic.de,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.41 running under perl 5.27.9.


After running "install Bundle​::Snapshot..." in a CPAN shell in
a perl 5.27.9 installation I've been left with a broken perl​:

  $ perl5.27.9 -MExtUtils​::MakeMaker -e1
  perl5.27.9​: symbol lookup error​: /opt/perl-5.27.9/lib/site_perl/5.27.9/x86_64-linux/auto/version/vxs/vxs.so​: undefined symbol​: STORE_NUMERIC_LOCAL_SET_STANDARD
  $ perl5.27.9 -MCPAN -e1
  perl5.27.9​: symbol lookup error​: /opt/perl-5.27.9/lib/site_perl/5.27.9/x86_64-linux/auto/version/vxs/vxs.so​: undefined symbol​: STORE_NUMERIC_LOCAL_SET_STANDARD
  $ perl5.27.9 -Mversion -MEncode -e1
  perl5.27.9​: symbol lookup error​: /opt/perl-5.27.9/lib/site_perl/5.27.9/x86_64-linux/auto/version/vxs/vxs.so​: undefined symbol​: STORE_NUMERIC_LOCAL_SET_STANDARD

The interesting lines in the CPAN update log are probably these​:

...
vars is up to date (1.03).
version​::regex is up to date (0.9918).
Running install for module 'version​::vpp'
Checksum for /home/slaven.rezic/.cpan/sources/authors/id/J/JP/JPEACOCK/version-0.9918.tar.gz ok
...
  JPEACOCK/version-0.9918.tar.gz
  /usr/bin/make test -- OK
Running make install
...
Installing /opt/perl-5.27.9/lib/site_perl/5.27.9/x86_64-linux/auto/version/vxs/vxs.so
...
version​::vxs is up to date (0.9918).
vmsish is up to date (1.04).
...

So the existence of version​::vpp (which does not seem to be part of newer
perls anymore) triggered the version.pm update, and installed a version.pm
which is apparently incompatible with current bleadperl.

Probably the same problem would happen if a reinstall method on version
would be run (in a CPAN shell​: test version + install_tested, with cpanm​:
cpanm --reinstall version) (not tested).

I also noticed that vutil.c was edited in the perl core despite of
a notice on top of the file that it should not be edited here, but
in the version distribution.

It looks like a new CPAN release of version.pm should be done.

IMNSHO what we really need is for version to become upstream=core.
It's far too entangled with core for anything else to make sense.

I sent the maintainer a personal email a few hours ago. This is my

The interesting lines in the CPAN update log are probably these​:

...
vars is up to date (1.03).
version​::regex is up to date (0.9918).
Running install for module 'version​::vpp'
Checksum for
/home/slaven.rezic/.cpan/sources/authors/id/J/JP/JPEACOCK/version-
0.9918.tar.gz ok
...
   JPEACOCK/version-0.9918.tar.gz
   /usr/bin/make test -- OK
Running make install
...
Installing /opt/perl-5.27.9/lib/site_perl/5.27.9/x86_64-
linux/auto/version/vxs/vxs.so
...
version​::vxs is up to date (0.9918).
vmsish is up to date (1.04).
...

So the existence of version​::vpp (which does not seem to be part of
newer
perls anymore) triggered the version.pm update, and installed a
version.pm
which is apparently incompatible with current bleadperl.

Probably the same problem would happen if a reinstall method on
version
would be run (in a CPAN shell​: test version + install_tested, with
cpanm​:
cpanm --reinstall version) (not tested).

I also noticed that vutil.c was edited in the perl core despite of
a notice on top of the file that it should not be edited here, but
in the version distribution.

It looks like a new CPAN release of version.pm should be done.
IMNSHO what we really need is for version to become upstream=core.
It's far too entangled with core for anything else to make sense.
Agreed.
I have heard nothing back from the maintainer.  I added this to the
5.28 blockers.
I'm wondering if we should proceed with a takeover of this distro.

Let me give it a try first.

I sent the maintainer a personal email a few hours ago.  This is my
first attempt to reach him that way.

John got back to me. A new release of version.pm is upcoming -
hopefully today.

1. A new version of 'version' was uploaded to CPAN on Sunday April 08. https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=124563#txn-1780803.  That ticket has been marked Resolved.

2. The author/maintainer apparently did a couple of uploads since then.

3. Today I merged 'version' version 0.9921 into blead. 'perl Porting/sync-with-cpan version' didn't work very well, so I hacked together my own program. See commit message for​:

commit d3a5b29
Author​: John Peacock <jpeacock@​cpan.org>
AuthorDate​: Thu Apr 12 11​:22​:58 2018 -0400
Commit​: James E Keenan <jkeenan@​cpan.org>
CommitDate​: Thu Apr 12 13​:42​:43 2018 -0400

I'm going to close this ticket. For discussion of whether 'version' should become 'blead-upstream' and move from cpan/ to dist/, I recommend posting to list or opening a new RT.

Thank you very much.
Jim Keenan
