=head1 NAME

Task::OTRS - Almost all of the modules required for installing OTRS Help Desk.

=head1 VERSION

version 1.10


This is just a Task module to install dependencies. There's no code to use
or run.


Installing this module will also install almost all the modules you'll need
to run OTRS.

Note that OTRS itself also ships some CPAN modules in Kernel/cpan-libs, these
modules will not be required by Task::OTRS. See for the bundled list of
modules in OTRS L<Module::OTRS::CoreList>.

The only module that you need to run OTRS but that will not be installed is
the database driver, because OTRS supports multiple database backends. So
after you're done installing Task::OTRS you might also want to
install the database driver for your DMBS of choice:

=over 4

=item * for MySQL (the most popular database for OTRS): L<DBD::mysql>

=item * for PostgreSQL: L<DBD::Pg>

=item * for Oracle: L<DBD::Oracle>

=item * for Microsoft SQL Server: L<DBD::ODBC> (only on Windows platforms)

=item * for IBM DB2: L<DBD::DB2>


Note that installing these drivers can require installation of database 
libraries on your system as well.

All modules that will be installed are listed below. Note that if such a 
module is already on your system, we will not install it again.

=over 4

=item * Archive::Zip

=item * Authen::NTLM

=item * Class::Inspector

=item * Compress::Zlib

=item * Crypt::Eksblowfish::Bcrypt

=item * Date::Format

=item * DBI

=item * Encode::HanExtra

=item * GD

=item * GD::Graph

=item * GD::Text

=item * IO::Socket::SSL

=item * JSON::XS

=item * Mail::IMAPClient

=item * Net::DNS

=item * Net::LDAP

=item * PDF::API2

=item * SOAP::Lite

=item * Template

=item * Text::CSV_XS

=item * XML::Parser

=item * YAML::XS

=item * version


=head1 CAVEATS

Apart from not installing the database dependencies, installing Task::OTRS
will get you possibly more modules than you'll be needing. For instance, if
you use postfix for mail delivery and sending, you might not be needing
Net::POP3 and Net::SMTP. Also, in case you don't care about generating PDF
files with OTRS, you don't need PDF::API2. That said, installing
Task::OTRS can help in setting up OTRS more quickly.

This module will install all modules for the newest version of OTRS at time
of this writing, 4.0.
It will even install slightly more modules; for instance SOAP::Lite is
bundled in OTRS 3.1 and up; we bundle it just for convenience reasons.
