I think I've probably just answered this myself... but I'll make sure my
method is sane and correct first!

1) SSH into git.debian.org
2) mv /git/pkg-perl/packages/libtime-modules-perl.git \
3) Update the description in libtime-parsedate-perl.git
4) Now update .mrconfig (locally or on remote?) and commit

That seems to be everything required... I think!
