I think Nicolas is referring to fixing the perl-XML-TreeBuilder runtime requirement for
mythtv. Until recently, it was missing from el8.
I am not sure if this is needed for xmltv or not. Haven't looked.
Not in any direct usage (there may
be some transitive usage deep in
the perl Use/Requires chain, but the
package build itself tries to make
sure those dependencies will resolve).
The only xmltv grabber that is not built
for Fedora is the one that depends on
a perl module that no one has ever
packaged for Fedora (and since I have
no way to even test that module
(perl-Linux-DVB-DVBT) I am unlikely
to take it on. And, in addition, the PVR
package I use already supports EPG
collection via direct tuner acquisition,
so I am less motivated). If someone
else wants to package (and presumably
test) that perl module for Fedora (and
the EL's), I will gladly add a BR.
And even more OT....
FWIW for EL9 (the future) there are
some missing dependencies for both
xmltv and mythtv in EPEL9. I believe
there are open bugzillas with requests
for branching for most/all of the
known missing packages. But all that
is for the future.
