Jeremiah, for libtest-strict-perl it looks like somebody just
do the TODOs listed in the changelog.
I will do this, now.
I see that you did this, thanks for that. however it doesn't show up
in the "ready for upload" section in PET because there's a new
upstream version. can you please svn-upgrade it or do you want me to?
I shall do it immediately. :)
Jeremiah, it looks like libtest-file-perl just needs you to either
upstream to make the change or patch it in.
I suspect I will have to patch it in myself, I have talked with
about this, but only in passing. I will try and discuss it again
doubt brian will want my advice on how to build his modules.
looking at this myself, I see no need to ask brian to move the
file. afaik, the correct fix for this is to make a change to the
Makefile.PL like this:
- 'lib/File.pm' => '$(INST_MAN3DIR)/Test::File.3',
+ 'lib/File.pm' => '$(INST_MAN3DIR)/Test::File.$
that should also be changed upstream. If you want me to I can patch
that into the package and forward it upstream.
That would be excellent - thanks for working this out.
I don't mean to rush you on these packages, sorry if I come across
that way (I kind of feel like I am..).
Not at all, please don't feel that way. What you are doing is the hard
work of co-ordinating the debian-perl group so that specific software
can get into debian and reach users. This is really, really important.
I think you have been helpful and professional so I thank you for your
