Thanks to everyone who participated in the pkg-perl BoF at DebConf

  net-needing tests.

state of git migration:

test conversion:

map of svn history:

remaining issues:

- dh-make-perl moved from /tools; should be easy

  - given map file, we can fix.

  - mostly working
  - http://pet.debian.net/pkg-perl/pet.cgi
  - git://git.debian.org/pet/pet3.git

- Wait and see what CPAN does?
- If someone wants to package perl6 module within the team,   OK.

Q: from IRC

A: not a big problem. Comment from db that he is "CDBS-tolerant"

Q: From diocles
