Description James Carter 2018-01-05 05:34:43 UTC
This is for Tumbleweed as of 2018-01-04 and 
perl-Mcrypt-2.5.7.0-78.12.x86_64 .

perl-Mcrypt requires perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_5.24.1) but Tumbleweed
has moved to perl-5.26.1.  If I were to force installation of this
version of perl-Mcrypt, about 200 packages would have to be 
downgraded.  

However, devel:/languages:/perl has /perl-Mcrypt-2.5.7.0-143.27.x86_64
which requires perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_5.26.1).  This version installs
with no drama and works fine in my application.  May I suggest
promoting this version to be the official one for Tumbleweed? 
Thanks.

I assign to product manager to take a look at this issue.

Hi Dominique, would you please take a look at this issue? The package perl-Mcrypt hasn't been updated for three years, I couldn't find a maintainer for this issue.
Thanks.

Can't say where perl-Mcrypt-2.5.7.0-78.12 is coming from, but Tumbleweed had o perl-Mcrypt since 

r24 | dimstar_suse | 2017-11-26 09:35:35 | cee972956c0b440eb63ca6339def7831 | 2.5.7.0 | rq544392

When the package was removed from Tumbleweed.

Also, it's very surprising that you see this issue only now, since TW moved to perl 5.26 in October 2017
