Re: Mandrake patched perl-GTK2 in a bad direction?

I'm 100% agree with you:
they should use 'use lib "/some/where/else"' in their scripts for theirs and our convenience....

Their failing, in my opinion, is that they install their patched
modules inside the Perl tree in @INC, thus causing Gtk2-Perl
upgrades using pristine sources to break their tools, and causing
user-installed scripts to use modules whose behaviour differs
significantly from what they were developed with. Installing
their patched Gtk2-Perl outside @INC would have avoided all of
these problems.
