Package list, under the optional modules the text reads GD (v1.19) for bug charting Chart::Base (v0.99c) for bug charting However, on CPAN the Chart::Base version 0.99-pre3 (there is no 0.99) reguires GD 1.20 or greater. Note that the version for GD has been updated to 1.20 in the development branch (2.17.4) guide. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
The version listed here matches what's in checksetup.pl for 2.16.

This seems so simple, yet nothing's ever been done about it... though I guess it does require changing checksetup.pl to maintain the integrity... or is it OK if the two are different?
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Chart::Base never reported the a/b/c or pre3 on the version number, all it reported was 0.99. This is why checksetup.pl only checks for that. 0.99b works with GD 1.19. 0.99c did, too, I believe. It's quite conceivable that someone has it installed on a machine with 0.99b... I don't think we should bump the tests in checksetup.pl because it would then suddenly break someone that upgrades the 'stable' version. That's one of the golden rules for the stable branches is don't alter the dependencies without a damn good reason (like to fix a security bug).
