Hmm. I'd be careful (I do not know much about Perl, though) because it
seems to be a new major revision and _might_ have compatibilty issues.
triplecheck that depending modules work with this new revision.
Unless there is a very good reason for uploading a new upstream
version I do not think a NMU without maintainer consent is justified,
both #157594 and #190459 are simple packaging issues which can be fixed
with 1.23-1.1. Alan isn't MIA or dormant either, he made an upload
only a week ago.

I'd use one. Title: lintian errors.

Developers' reference has detailed step-by-step instruction which
differ slightly from yours, I'd suggest following d-r.
