Re: Packaging perl modules / new package TimeDate
I've always wanted to package a lot of the CPAN packages (I
already do libcgi-perl), but I keep running out of time. I have a
debian/rules file that would likely work for a lot of the CPAN
packages, and with time can be worked into a kernel-package style
package (cpan-package?). There are probably a number of unresolved
issue (package naming is one), and I'm not sure if some packages may
require special handling.
Is someone working on this? I can forward you my rules
file. There are other things higher up on my list at the moment, but
I guess I'll eventually get to this unless someone has already
created a cpan-package.
I think we _should_ consider a Perl directory just like we
have a TeX directory, since the size of CPAN is likely to be of the
same order as CTAN ...
