The purpose of these tests is not *only* to check that MIME-Version is
set or not set, or set on line 27 vs. set on line 31.
So, I think it does make sense to update the reference files in the
test suite so that they match the expected behaviour of this module on
current Debian testing/sid (due to changes in a dependency), and the
resulting updated test suite will still be relevant to catch other
bugs or other future build failures caused by other changes in other
So, I'd say go ahead.
Besides, I'm going to ping rjbs on RT#35979 so that our patch against
MIME-Lite, that we've been shipping in testing/sid for 10 months
without any complain so far, gets a chance to be merged upstream.
So, hopefully the patch that will update the test suite to fix the bug
at hand will be short-lived as a purely Debian one, and can be
upstreamed too soon! :)
Stefan, what do you think? Shall we go ahead and (with a few Debian
Perl Group members here at DebCamp) do a (non-maintainer) upload of
libmime-lite-html-perl with the suggested changes to fix that RC bug?
