I also don't see a bug submitted with this. If you're submitting
NMU's, you sure as hell better be submitting bugs with patches (or
the fact that no patch is required other than rebuilding with an
updated system).

Please delete your uploads. You are violating policy.

For debian-devel: The NMU here was made to rebuild for perl 5.8;
no other changes would have been necessary.

What is the concensus on this? I'm not talking out of my ass here,
am I?
