Uploaded perl 5.004.04-3 (source i386) to master
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I've uploaded the following to master. (Actually it's been there for
1.5 days, debian-changes-devel doesn't exist.) As always, it's
available at ftp://ftp.daft.com/pub/debian/perl*.
You definitely want to use this version rather than 5.004.04-2 if you
are upgrading from bo. Santiago <firstname.lastname@example.org> found a bug where it's
possible for Perl to not exist for a short time during upgrade.
Date: Tue, 9 Dec 1997 12:21:48 -0800
Binary: perl-suid perl-debug perl-base perl
Architecture: source i386
Urgency: medium (High for those upgrading from bo)
Maintainer: Darren Stalder <email@example.com>
perl - Larry Wall's Practical Extracting and Report Language.
perl-base - The Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister
perl-debug - Allow debugging Perl scripts (and Perl).
perl-suid - Runs setuid Perl scripts.
perl (5.004.04-3) unstable; urgency=medium (High for those upgrading from bo)
* A start on building a libperl5.so.\d+. I'm going to put this into
since 1) Perl is linking with a static libperl.a and 2) people may
want to install libperl5.so.\d+ without installing perl.
* Oops. I hadn't considered the chance that the old perl package would
be replaced by the new perl package (without Perl) before perl.base
was configured. Added a pre-depends of perl-base (>=5.004.04-2) to
make sure that Perl is always installed on an upgrade.
* The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time. The remaining 10%
of the time takes the other 90%. Building a libperl ran into some
interesting snags and will not debut with this version.
* Adapted patch by Herbert Xu <firstname.lastname@example.org> that uses
if's in the postinst so that we don't get false negatives on
install. Took the chance to change the find/xargs to use -print0/-0
