Re: invitation for you and your packages to join the pkg-perl team


It would be great if my packages could be adopted by the team.  I haven't had a lot of time for them.

Dear Mario,

In the Debian Perl team, we have been looking at perl module packages
which are not team maintained and considering whether the lives of
these packages can be made better (for example, by reducing the overhead
and increasing the consistency of that packaging), by suggesting that
they be moved to the pkg-perl team.

There is no obligation, of course, to do this, but if you would
like to move any or all of your module packages to the team, you can
request to join the team and then migrate your packages across. Of
course, if you are already a team member, then you are already free
to import and upload your packages under team maintainership.

The benefits of working within the team include increased consistency
and efficiency at scale when working with large number of straightforward
module packages, and more flexibility when it comes to QA work.

If you don't feel able to join the team but would like your packages
to benefit from this anyway, you can also reply to this email asking for
the package(s) in question to be adopted by the team (though obviously
we'd prefer the former case).

You can find out more about the team and how to join it at

At this stage we are contacting all such maintainers with a general
invitation. Future team-wide QA efforts may identify specific
packages we'd like to help with maintenance of and we may therefore
follow-up with another invitation in such cases.

Your lib*-perl packages are listed below for reference:


Thanks for your work in maintaining the Debian Perl ecosystem!

Best wishes
on behalf of the Debian Perl Team
