Subject: libimdb-film-perl should not enter testing
Date: Sun, 11 Mar 2007 14:44:13 +0100
Package: libimdb-film-perl
Version: 0.24-1
Severity: serious

As the imdb.com website is likely to change during the lifetime of a
stabel release, and because this will break libimdb-film-perl's
functionality, the package should not be released in stable/main.  I
am considering uploading it to volatile instead.

I'm CCing the bug so this discussion is recorded in the relevant place.
I think I would tend to agree that we should give the package the benefit
of the doubt; closing this bug and dealing with issues as they arise,
via stable-updates if needed. But then again I also don't use the module...

Same disclaimer here. But agree, let's give it a try and deal with any
issue as they arise.
