  Description     : utilities to write and check a MANIFEST file

Dear Perl team and Debian developers,

I intend to package the ExtUtils::Manifest Perl module. It is already packaged
in the perl-modules packages, but in Lenny the provided version is too low to
allow backports of one package of mine that would be fine otherwise. My purpose
is therefore to prepare a libextutils-manifest-perl package similar in design
to libmodule-build-perl, which is also dually present in Debian, and then to
submit a backport to backports.org after the package migrated in Testing.

Please let me know if this would create problems or if more coordination is
required with the perl-modules package.

Here is a tentative description:

 ExtUtils::Manifest is a Perl module that provides a number of utilities to
 write and check a MANIFEST file. At present the list includes mkmanifest,
 manicheck, filecheck, fullcheck, skipcheck, manifind, maniread, manicopy, and

Have a nice day,
