Re: What to do about libtest-harness-perl?

 The differences between 3.20 and 3.21 are minor - only the test scripts.

The differences between 3.21 and 3.22 are more substantial. From what I can see however the area of the bug was being worked on almost right up until the release. In other words it looks to me as if the patch forms a large part of what happened between 3.21 and 3.22.

The Changes file: http://search.cpan.org/src/ANDYA/Test-Harness-3.22/Changes
The diff: http://search.cpan.org/diff?from=Test-Harness-3.21&to=Test-Harness-3.22&w=1 (Note that almost every file contains the version number so every file is touched, but this does not mean anything.)
The upstream repository: http://github.com/AndyA/Test-Harness/network

The bug concerns how the prove utility handles testing scripts directly. Anyway other members of the Debian Perl group will want to express an opinion.

We have a new upstream version of Test::Harness from CPAN. I have just
packaged this version and given that this fixes an issue currently in
test, we need to know whether this should be uploaded in time to get
into squeeze.
As per bug #592506 there is a serious issue introduced since upstream 3.17.
There is theoretically a patch in the upstream repository.
We had 3.21-1 in our repository until today.
Upstream have issued a new release 3.22 that includes the patch.

What does the diff between 3.20-1 and 3.22-1 look like?
