During my packaging I notice that upstream use "Artistic-2" as license, which I believe is not DFSG-free.Hu? That's new to me. And you shouldn't tell it all Artistic-2-only packages in the archive :)
Ah - I confused this with Artistic-1 (without GPL dual-licensing). Agreed, there is no problem with this licensing.
I notice Jonathan registered the ITP, but I guess it was on behalf of the Perl team. Would it be ok that I release my packaging as official (when the licensing issue is hopefully solved)?Or you could finish Jonathan's package ... (I don't care either way, I just suggest to avoid duplicated work as much as possible.)My packaging is on behalf of the Perl team, but one possible issue could be that I use CDBS which Jonathan might not favor.In practice this means that hardly anybody will touch the package, but that's nothing new and not the first package in this situation :)
...so it seems you do care after all ;-)It is not the first time I hear the meme of "hardly anyone" using CDBS. That is not my experience, but whatever...
Personally I use CDBS for all the packages that I am involved in packaging, as I find that most effective. Also, I need occasionally to backport to Lenny and earlier, and have found it quite difficult to do so with short-form dh style packaging.
I therefore have no interest in packaging unless using CDBS.I shall not "infect" the pending libmojolicious-perl package with my weird packaging preference, but just cross my fingers that some ordinary Debian Developer pay some interest in it instead.
