Bug#532932: ITP: libalien-libjio-perl -- Perl package to find libjio

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Jonathan Yu <jonathan.i.yu@gmail.com>

* Package name    : libalien-libjio-perl
  Version         : 1.0
  Upstream Author : Jonathan Yu <frequency@cpan.org>
* URL             : CPAN
* License         : Public Domain
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : Perl package to find libjio

This module is a generic Perl module that is designed to install libjio if it
is not installed, and then report the flags required for programs to link to
it. Under Debian, installing libjio via this package is not necessary (since
it can simply Build-Depend and Depend on the libjio package itself.

However, the Perl module still needs to be installed so that Perl programs can
find it, and the flags required to link to it. This will be useful if modules
other than simply IO::Journal (later to be ITP'd as libio-journal-perl, once
it is appropriately uploaded to CPAN).

Luckily, since only the Perl stuff is going to be installed, then it's not
likely we'll ever need to really upgrade this module...
