Re: YAPC North America talk on dh-make-perl vs. CPANPLUS
Thanks for sharing this with the group! I've been looking for
something like this, particularly since everyone seems to wonder why
the Debian Perl group doesn't use cpan2dist.
"It doesn't know anything about some of the weird historical decisions
that have gone into Debian's perl (e.g. libcgi-perl is not CGI.pm but
some distribution named cvswebedit), and does not (currently) give you
quite enough control to make the packages it generates fit in with
Debian's perl in every case."
Made me wonder. What?
I do believe recursive packaging is a work in progress for
dh-make-perl, so that will be a moot point in due time. I suppose the
idea is that dh-make-perl is more for us pkg-perl people, and that
cpan2dist is more for other people who just want to install a package.
I think the key take-away from this article is that we should work on
dh-make-perl (I can volunteer to spend very limited time hacking on
it) to get it to recursively package things, and to create a much
quicker & dirtier package when --pkg-perl is not specified.
