Re: dh-make-perl revamped (not really)

Saw your follow-up and I promised not to continue but I think this is a
useful clarification.

Yes ... I thought as much but I wasn't sure.  I realize it doesn't help
*you* (much - see below) but it would help *me* and github provides the
bandwidth and storage.

For good reasons, I am not free to upload to git.debian.org without
jumping through a certain number of hoops.  I can post a patch to this
list but that still entails more work for someone else than using git to
merge from github.

[*] It lets me exploit the freedom that git provides.  I have a server
and I won't use github once I've set up my own git browser etc ... but
that's months away (i'm busy).
