Bug#800114: RFA: libtext-header-perl -- RFC 822/2068 header and unheader functions

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

Description-en: RFC 822/2068 header and unheader functions
 This module provides two new functions, header and unheader,
 which provide general-purpose RFC 822 header construction and parsing.
 They do not provide any intelligent defaults of HTTP-specific methods.
 They are simply aimed at providing an easy means to address the
 mechanics of header parsing.
 The output style is designed to mimic CGI.pm and HTTP::Headers,
 so that users familiar with these interfaces will feel at home with
 these functions.

If somebody wants to pick up libtext-header-perl, that'd be great.  It's
not particularly much used (popcon has 23 installations), but I don't
use it any more and don't particularly care for it.  Its packaging
surely needs updating, since it hasn't received any attention for a long

If nobody picks this up in a reasonable time frame, I'll just ask for it
to be removed.
