[jifty-devel] HTML::Mason and YAML depencies

Activestate-Support gave me the advice to take a look at dependencies of 
jifty because there are some minimum-version needed:


In the dependencies META.YML in jifty is "YAML::Syck: 0.45", maybe the 
simple "YAML: 0.62" (which worked here) should be added

"HTML::Mason: 1.3101" was mentioned in META.YML but maybe not seen 
somehow by the package maintainer.

This mail is to help other people to get things running and the package 
work out of the box (great to have jifty as AS-package, no more whining 
from my windows-users at perl-mongers :-)

Hi Richard,

Thanks for reporting this problem; I have passed along your report to 
our Perl
team to look into. PPM package dependencies are usually determined from the
CPAN distributions they are based on; does Jifty usually install YAML when
installed from the CPAN shell?

Let me know if you have any further questions or comments.

best regards,
