CGI.pm not in libcgi-perl anymore? (was: Re: libcgi-perl?)


Please ignore everything I've said in this whole discussion.  I was
arguing without checking things, and I was way wrong.

While I would have sworn that at one time libcgi-perl included CGI.pm,
it certainly doesn't now.

This suggests that we either need a package that includes it---and I
would argue with Manoj that that would have to be libcgi-perl, since
there are already packages out there that (I suspect) mistakenly have
dependencies on it---or our heroic perl maintainers need to take the
tiger by the tail and update the perl sources with the new version.

Chip: I haven't been following p5p closely the last few months---any
particular reason CGI.pm hasn't been updated that you know of?
