See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1744782  Apparently it's been superseded by perl-Net-SSLeay.

Thanks, it looks like we may not need this one anymore, just had a stale dependency for it.


I don't even see this in EL7 proper - https://pkgs.org/download/perl-Data-Validate-IP

We must have got it from rpmfusion or some place outside of the main centos repos.
I guess the answer is probably go there to get it again, but it's not there yet either.
Probably the best answer is build it ourselves from source. Here's a link I found.



It's been requested in EPEL: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1779134 but no response yet.

Eagerly awaiting this. We might use the build steps from that url and build our own until it's supported.

       Any ideas why these aren't in the repos yet?
I'm using these repos below and I've browsed repos searching for these.

All of the above was found by fairly straightforward google and bugzilla searches.
