That brings me to share another idea:
Now that the release of etch is nearing (well, sort of ...) I've been
thinking about a PPPP (Perl Packages' Polishing Party). 

With "Polishing" I mean to bring all Perl modules up2date, i.e.
* Standards-Version 3.7.2
* Debhelper compatibility level 5
* Homepage in debian/control
* watch file (existing and accurate)
* Build-Depends-Indep
* new upstream versions
* ...

Cf. also

I know that Debian is more about doing stuff than proposing it ;-)
and I'm willing to do part of this work, but I wanted to check
* if others consider this useful
* if some DDs from the DPG would be willing to check and sponsor
  these changes.

What do you think about shiny new Perl modules' packages?
