Perl-html-mason packages is missing

#1

For some reason, perl-html-mason package is missing. Does anybody know why?
Manjaro Linux 18.0.2, Xfce


#2

It’s not in Arch Linux, so why do you think it should be in Manjaro?


#3

But there is package perl-catalyst-view-mason, having perl-html-mason as dependency.
Not that I would need perl-catalyst-view-mason, but I need perl-html-mason :slight_smile:


#4

Yeah. That package has not been updated in almost 4 years.
I guess nothing else needed perl-html-mason so it got removed.

If you need that package, your best bet is to create your own PKGBUILD so you can build it for Arch/Manjaro.
What would you need that package for btw? :slight_smile:


#5

I have got here MASON components where I have to extract text messages (calls to lexicon) from. So I compile those components to Perl using HTML::Mason::Compiler object and then I use xgettext to extract the messages.


#6

For long time I used openSuse and Linux Mint for this purpose. Now I switched my virtual machine to Manjaro Linux and unfortunately I realized, that it is not possible anymore :frowning:


#7

Yeah. I think your best bet is to mainatin your own PKGBUILD for this package.
It probably won’t be added to Manjaro repo’s, since it seems like a fairly niche use case. :slight_smile:


#8

It’s a good use of the AUR though.
