RFS: libmp3-tag-perl - Module for reading tags of MP3 audio files


I'm seeking a sponsor to upload the latest version of libmp3-tag-perl

MP3::Tag is a perl module for reading and writing ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags
in mp3 files.  The version currently in debian is quite old (0.40),
and the latest version (0.97) adds quite a few enhancements.

I've tested it with the two reverse depends in debian, slimp3, which
does a 'use MP3::Tag' but then doesn't do anything with it (filed as
#320068), and libaudio-file-perl (Audio::File), which works fine. I
also tested it with some of my own code, with no regressions.

The package is lintian and linda clean.

I'm currently discussing #318005 with upstream.


  * New maintainer (Closes: #303615).
  * New upstream release, fixes:
    + PCNT handling (Closes: #217483).
    + ID3v2.pm man page bug (Closes: #318007).
    + Request for new upstream version (Closes: #273676).
  * debian/control:
    + Recommends: libmp3-info-perl.
    + Standards-Version: 3.6.2 (No changes).
  * Added examples/ and tk-tag/ as examples.
  * debian/copyright: corrected license from GPL to Artistic.
  * Added debian/watch file.

The package can be found at
