Hi Alex,

Thanks for the offer, your help is very much welcome! :)

The current state is tracked at http://bugs.debian.org/492696 (cc-ed)

Basically, there is a heap of dependencies that aren't packaged yet.

Adding perl modules to Debian is best done via the Debian Perl Group, 
so you have come to the right place :)

Please tell me your username on alioth.debian.org so I can add you to 
the pkg-perl project. Mandatory reading includes policy.html and 
subversion.html on http://pkg-perl.alioth.debian.org/ . Yes, module 
packages are maintained in a huge subversion repository. There are 
other useful documents on that site too, feel free to browse them.

For added confusion, Padre packaging is maintained using Git at
(git-clone ssh://git.debian.org/git/pkg-perl/apps/padre.git after you 
have been added too the project)

I am sure you will have questions. Please ask on this list or on 
#debian-perl channel on irc.debian.org (OFTC).
