Transition to perl 5.24 preventing builds in unstable

The transition to perl 5.24 has started, and this causes uninstallable
build dependencies for most packages with perl (modules) in its
dependency chain, this includes mapserver & qgis amongst others.

There will be some delay until enough of the perl packages have been
rebuilt before we can build the packages in question for unstable again.

It's unhelpful that the transition trackers haven't been updated since
yesterday, so the tracker for the perl transition is currently not very


It does contain links to the transition bugreport and usertagged bugs
affecting the transition.

I expect that most of the issues caused by the perl transition will be
solved sometime next week.

Kind Regards,
