Bug#525350: hardcoded s3.amazonaws.com prevents use with walrus

Joey Hess
Package: libnet-amazon-s3-perl
Severity: normal

s3.amazonaws.com is hardcoded throughout the code. If this were moved to
a single, configurable variable, then it would be possible to use this
library to talk to a s3 compatible server such as walrus

Bug#525350: hardcoded s3.amazonaws.com prevents use with walrus

Jonathan Yu
Hi there:

Thanks for the bug report.

However, as this package is not Debian-specific, I would suggest
reporting the bug upstream in the CPAN Request Tracker. If we don't
hear back from the author in due time (maybe a week or two), then we
can look into a Debian patch.

I think the preferred thing is to avoid patching in Debian if we can
do so, and the changes you propose would benefit a wider audience than
just Debian users.

I have thus taken the liberty of forwarding this bug to the Request
Tracker as RT#45261. It is available at:
https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=45261

I assume that this relates to the most recent version of that package
available -- that is, the upstream 0.50. Next time it may be useful
for you to note that in your bug report.

I have Cc'd both the Debian Perl list as well as bug BTS#525350 on the
Debian tracker, so you can keep updated on changes to this action
item.

Cheers,

Jonathan

This is something that the Debian Perl Group[0] or other interested
parties do; it doesn't fall on the bug submitter. [Kudos for doing
that below.]

It's perfectly ok to fix this bug in Debian and forward the patch
upstream or vice versa. [Obviously, if the maintainer is responsive,
so much the better, but there's no need to wait if they aren't (or for
a new upstream release.)]

I think this is covered in the new upstream releases, could you please
check back and let me know if this bug is still valid?


Best,
Utkarsh
