Thanks for the info, Paul!
...Does that mean it no longer has any usefulness without
perl-Time-Piece,and should be similarly orphaned/retired?
No, when I said that "perl-Time-Piece was obsoleted by the base perl
package", I meant that its functionality was absorbed by the main perl
package, i.e. the module is now built from the perl SRPM rather than
its own SRPM. So perl-Time-Piece still exists, but is not built
independently of the perl interpreter itself.
So perl-Time-Piece-MySQL is still useful.
