i did some digging into this (see SVN r8817), and we need at the very minimum:

perl-XML-LibXML <= 1.69
perl-XML-LibXML-Common (bring it back from the vault)
perl-XML-LibXSLT <= 1.63

and we need Dag to remove any later versions from the repo.

if we want to roll all the way back to the versions from upstream, we have to go back to perl-XML-LibXSLT <= 1.59 (there's already a spec for this in SVN).  for packages that are as widely used as these, i'm OK with offering versions that replace packages from upstream, since their absence is really crippling.


If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
