Bug#494434: ITP: libb-perlreq-perl -- Perl compiler backend to extract Perl dependencies

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Damyan Ivanov <dmn@debian.org>

* Package name    : libb-perlreq-perl
  Version         : 0.6.8
  Upstream Author : Alexey Tourbin <at@altlinux.org>
* URL             : http://search.cpan.org/dist/rpm-build-perl/
* License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : Perl compiler backend to extract Perl dependencies

B::PerlReq is a backend module for the Perl compiler that extracts
dependencies from Perl source code, based on the internal compiled
structure that Perl itself creates after parsing a program. The output
of B::PerlReq is suitable for automatic dependency tracking.

The upstream distribution is named rpm-build-perl, perhaps because the
author uses it for automatic discovery of dependencies on altlinux,
which is rpm-based.

The Debian package will be named libb-perlreq-perl, after B::PerlReq --
the main module of the distribution.
