I took a short glance at these three and stopped.

The following is a list of things I'd have to do before uploading. I'd
gladly explain why I prefer things this way, but I've already done this
on the list so please mail be directly or stop by #debian-perl on
irc.debian.org for a real-time chat :)

 * Change maintainer to the group
   Note that putting youself in Uploaders makes sense only if you want
   to be able to DM-upload the package. See policy draft[1]
 * Migrate from CDBS to debhelper
   Sorry, CDBS is still a black box to me.
   See dh-make-perl templates for good debian/rules examples. Be sure to
   use the one from SVN.
 * Separate any changes to upstream sources in patches, using quilt
   (I didn't check if there are any)
 * Replace by-author URLs in debian/watch with either by-module[2] ones
   or (if the directory is large) by-dist[3] ones
 * Build all packages in a sid chroot (pbuilder/cowbuilder help here a

    [1] website/policy.pod.draft on group's SVN
    [2] see libalias-perl for example
    [3] see libhtml-highlight-perl for example

The only real[4] showstopper is the maintainer field. Because of it, I am
changing the distribution of all the packages to UNRELEASED in SVN so we
can easily track[5] them.

    [4] The rest will make it unlikely for me to upload as I'll have to
        do more changes, not just review. Discplaimer: not everyone in
        the group shares these preferences.
