Just mail debian-perl@lists.debian.org (CC-ed).

The list does not require subscription to post, but it would make it 
a bit easier to follow if you are subscribed. If you don't like to 
subscribe, remember to ask to be CC-ed on replies.

Great. dpkg is pretty much guaranteed to exist on any "Debian" system, 
but avoiding both the fork and the parsing hackery is welcome.

I don't mind doing the cherry-picking myself. I only ask you to base 
them against the current master on git.debian.org (which corresponds 
to SVN trunk).

I am also fine with giving you commit access directly to the SVN 
repository. So far you seem to know what you're doing and we can 
always revert :P

Side note: several of the characters you'd find on debian-perl list 
are also hanging in #debian-perl IRC channel (irc.debian.org, OFTC).
