Item11467: Need better documentation and handling of Perl dependencies
Recently revised documentation no longer has the list of Perl Module dependencies, and refers installers to the
file. This minimizing of dependencies leaves users with semi-functional systems. If a default core feature is dependent upon a perl module, it really ought to be clearly documented.
- Restore the Perl Modules list to System/SystemRequirements
- omit any modules shipped with Foswiki
- "required" should be set for any key default features like Wysiwyg, compare, email.
Digest::SHA1 is deprecated, but still needed by the
core/lib/CPAN/lib/Cache/FileBackend.pm file. Since it's required by a CPAN module we already ship, add this to the lib/CPAN/lib directory.
- This information should also be available in the INSTALL guide we ship in the root directory. Include it as an appendix.
