The current maintainer of dbd-xbase, Paolo Molaro <>,
is apparently not active anymore.  Therefore, I orphan this package
now.  If you want to be the new maintainer, please take it -- see for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Description: Perl module to access xbase files (optionally through DBI).
 This module allows access to .dbf files (it can create them, also),
 it handles memo files, but indexes only in a somewhat limited way.
 It has two interfaces: one using SQL commands (through DBI) ad the other
 with a simple OO interface.
 You can use the dbfdump program to dump the content of a .dbf file.

Justification: Outstanding RC bugs, was contacted several times about other
issues, said he'd fix but didn't.  Got many NMUs.  dh-make-perl: 3 NMUs,
jitterbug: 3 NMUs, libcorba-orbit-perl: 1 NMU, libglade: 7 NMUs, libgnome-
gnorba-perl: 1 NMU, libgtk-perl: 6 NMUs.
