Bug#199214: project: dependency perlapi-5.6.1 removed from sarge prematurely

Package: project
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-06-28
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

perlapi-5.6.1 disappeared from sarge after rollout of perl 5.8.0.
This package is essential to apt-file and many other common utilities.
Packages should not be removed from a distribution if other
packages in the distribution depend on them, or if there is no
dummy package prepared to make new components backwards-compatible.
