[adding redhat-cluster and lvm maintainers to thread. This discussion
is about trying to start the perl 5.22 transition, which has been
'about to happen' since August - so obviously those of us who care
about that are quite keen to see it happen sooner rather than later]

Ah, this is unfortunate (and it's especially unfortunate that we didn't
spot this blocking back in August..). It doesn't look like fixing
those FTBFS bugs is easy, especially given that the redhat-cluster
package is quite a way behind where upstream are (and upstream have
completely reorganised these packages (as best I can tell as someone
who is not at all familiar with them).
>From  it appears that work is underway to fix all this, by including
libdlm as a separate package. Presumably at this point lvm2 would not
depend on redhat-cluster and it could be removed from testing?
As a more immediate fix - can the HA team comment on whether libccs-perl
has any value? If not then perhaps that should just be dropped from
the redhat-cluster package ASAP (its description, not to mention
its popcon of 3, implies it could be dropped without grave consequence).
