Re: Perl packages in XML/SGML group
Yes you can be retained as Uploader for all three packages. The Debian
Perl team uses subversion (though with a different layout). I find the
Debian perl layout easier to use. You can apply to join at
http://alioth.debian.org/projects/pkg-perl/. I am not sure it makes much
sense to have a team as an uploader though. I don't think we need to do
anything special with SVN. We just do "apt-get source; make changes and
then svn-inject and purge the old repository".

Yes, the result of lacking manpower. libsgmls-perl and
libxml-parser-perl are orphaned. I just care about libxml-encoding-perl
and I already saw, that there is a new release.
libxml-parser-perl has dependencies that can be reduced now that
libwww-perl is split. All are out of date with regard to standards. The
bugs look easily addressable. Of course I could just update them in situ
but the Perl group seems a more natural home and is very active.
I agree to a move to the pkg-perl. All I request is, that the
debian-xml-sgml maintainer address is put into Uploaders and that the
packages are moved into a subversion tree. I would like to be added to
the pkg-perl team (dleidert-guest).
Do you need the full SVN dump of libxml-encoding-perl (or can you create
it yourself?)? The others are still in CVS IIRC.
