Description dougs@dawnsign.com 2020-02-06 19:21:43 UTC
I just noticed an error message within my www/foswiki 2.1.6 installation that it is complaining of a missing Locale::Languages module. Researching this, I found that Locale::Languages was stripped from Perl 5.30. See https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/63018 for more details. I recalled that I had upgraded to Perl 5.30 a month or so ago and didn't notice the error message until now.

Can a new Perl port be generated utilizing that module? I have resorted to using cpan to download the Locale::Language module but that seems counter-intuitive especially when I am using the ports system instead of the packages.

Just a quick hint for everybody who is affected by the same issue: The missing FreeBSD package giving you "Locale::Language" is "p5-Locale-Codes".

Assign to current maintainer.
