* Package name    : pgplot-perl

Please use libpgplot-perl, following the current policy for Perl

Consider working this together with the pkg-perl group (then again, we
might have to discuss this in the group - Group, are you interested in
maintaining non-free packages? ;-) )

I have no objection to working on this, being the maintainer of pgplot5. The problem is that there is a bug filed against pgplot5 because it doesn't properly support libpgplot-perl (pgplot-perl or formerly pgperl) [0]. I have not had any time to figure this out for the past 8 months unfortunately. Part of the problem is that pgplot5 has a very complex build system and I inherited it from an MIA maintainer (silly me...).
