Re: Bug#469173: spread: Unavailability of newer version - Spread 4
there are at least 2 problems where help is needed:
- there are API changes in spread v4, libspread has a higher major
version number than in v3 (2 vs. 1).
- in spread v3 we built 4 packages from source tarball:
In spread v4 tarballs the perl stuff is not longer included, so
libspread-perl will disappear unless we build it from CPAN or from
spread's svn (CPAN has the more recent version) in a seperate package.
Should one build a package providing
conflicting with libspread1/libspread1-dev? And let "Debian Perl Group"
handle the libspread-perl?
