FEDORA-2016-1fb63e3bf3

security update in Fedora 22 for perl

Status: stable 2 years ago

Fix manipulating environment variables to align with how glibc handles duplicated environment variables. Perl now uses the first variable listed in the environment array and it removes any subsequent entries of the same-named variable from the array, so that child processes have only one variable instance in its environment.

Automated Test Results

Test results and gating status may sometimes conflict as the gating status is retrieved periodically by Bodhi's backend server, while the test results presented here are retrieved upon page load. If your update is marked as gated while all the tests show green/passed, the next check of gating status should open the gate.
