dh-make-perl : next step ?
As i'm not skilled to create debian packages, i used to use dh-make-perl
every time. Unfortunalty, Gunnar has no more time to work on it and i
still need it.
I provided some patches but dh-make-perl code is really hard to
understand and improve (imho). So i wrote a simple script to extract
informations from Makefile.PL that seems to work with Module::Build and
MakeMaker (dh-make-perl failed on same files).
You can see code and exemple here :
I think it can be the base of a complete rewrite that would be easier to
maintain but i'm not aware enought about the debian packaging process :
- is it still a good idea to work on such a tool?
- is there some document that provides the state for art for packaging
from cpan ?
Just thoughts for the moment so i'll really appreciate comments and advices.
