Or at > least, then will be the last chance for objections :) I think we have two things here * _Debian Perl Policy_ and perl >= 5.6-something: that's what the bug is about, and AFAICS it's decided and just waiting for being integrated in the next policy version by the policy maintainers. (BTW: That also affects debhelper.) * Writing "perl >= foo, perl-modules >= bar" as "perl >= bar" in (build) dependencies for our packages. That's our decision (and can be included in the _Debian Perl Group_ policy); there were no objections yesterday, we can look again at the next meeting.
