Agreed. MongoDB was already oldish by the time of the freeze. But it's now 
freeze time to prepare for next debian release, so update have also slowed 

In MongoDB case, it's too late to update the package for wheezy.

On the other hand, updating the package for unstable or experimental is

You should look for missing package with axi-cache. For instance:
$ axi-cache search DateTime::Tiny
2 results found.
Results 1-2:
100% libdatetime-tiny-perl - lightweight datetime object module
39% xfce4-goodies - enhancements for the Xfce4 Desktop Environment

ExtUtils::MakeMaker is another problem. Most of the time, the version in the 
dependency is added automatically during the build of the module distribution. 
Hopefully, MongoDB build will work with v 6.5705. If not, please get back to

You can join the team to help packaging. See:


Last but not least, pkg-perl-maintainer list is mostly used for automated 
communications. Mail are likely to get lost. You have a better chance of 
getting a reply on debian-perl@list.debian.org (cc'ed)

All the best
