Hi Bruno,

If you remember, we meet us at LSM/RMLL and we had a long discussion about your
project. I hope what I tell you has helped...

The goal of the perl team is to package perl modules/libs and not whole perl

I would be happy to help you and when we are ready, I can upload it to debian
and have you as Co-Maintainer + DM flag.

I have dget libprojectbuilder-perl_0.9.7.1.dsc

What I can already tell you to improve is:
 + Update debian policy Standards-Version, debian/compat
 + Add a description line and a whole description
 + Add missing depends (and try to build it with pbuilder to find out what is
 + Add Xs- option to tell where the source git/svn is in debian/control
 + Use our new debian/copyright format

That's for my first review...
Feel free to tell me when it's updated and I will have another deeper look.
