Re: libtk-pod-perl update ready to upload


Thanks for the corrections. I made the mistake of not double checking the build with pbuilder this time. However, when I build the new version is seems to show the same error for Pod::Simple so that should be included in the Build-Depends as well. My question is if the same packages need to be included in the Depends: as well. After all if they are necessary to build the package, perhaps they are also necessary for its execution. Is there an automatic way of getting these included or is a manual insertion required?

As for the change to the clean rule, I will make these changes to all of the modules I am working on.

I have uploaded a new version of libtk-pod-perl to alioth.  If someone
could upload it I would appreciate it.

The source tarball can be found at


Hmmm... I don't think it'll work - From the build process:

Warning: prerequisite Text::English 0 not found.
Warning: prerequisite Tk::HistEntry 0.4 not found.

I added them to debian/control

Now, I see you didn't 'make test' because you don't always have an X
server available for tests... I am leaving it as it was. But there is
one point I got an attention call in dh-make-perl, and I'd like to
propagate to other modules - See bug report #325452 for further
details: It is a common practice to see this:

       -$(MAKE) clean

This means we will simply ignore the result of 'make clean', which can
terribly fail - I am replacing it by:

	 [ ! -f Makefile ] || $(MAKE) clean

And I invite you all to do the same in any modules you maintain. Of
course, I am doing this same change in your module.
