Bug#617985: perl-modules: missing Provides for File::Path (version 2.04 is in Perl 5.10.0)
The perl-modules package is missing:
Conflicts: libfile-path-perl (<< 2.04)
I noticed this problem as a result of an sbuild issue:
Using: libtest-simple-perl (>= 0.88) | perl (>= 5.11.1) works
But: libfile-path-perl | perl (>= 5.11.1) does not work
This is because the second case currently causes the sbuild resolver to
think that libfile-path-perl is missing. In the first case, sbuild's
resolver thinks there is a version of libtest-simple-perl installed, but
which is too old (~*PROVIDES* is << 0.88), so version 0.88 is correctly
downloaded and installed, without causing issues due to the alternative
dependency not being satisfiable.
Anyway, simple fix is to add the Provides/Conflicts mentioned.
