  Description     : Digest::SHA::PurePerl - Perl implementation of SHA-1/224/256/384/512

Digest::SHA::PurePerl is a complete implementation of the NIST Secure Hash
Standard written entirely in Perl. It gives Perl programmers a convenient way
to calculate SHA-1, SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 message digests. It
is functionally equivalent to the Digest::SHA module.

Is there any possible point?  All Debian architectures can build and
run XS Perl modules.

(Note: I have no idea what this particular case is about)

PurePerl programs are often useful because they have less risk of
crashing horribly via a segfault. I'm not sure how this applies to
something as well-tested as the Digest::SHA module or the C
implementation of the algorithm.

It should be noted that while all arches can build and run XS modules,
it doesn't preclude a given arch from being unable to build a module
properly. In that case, it's convenient to be able to fall back to a
pure perl equivalent easily.

Neither of these is really convincing (not to me, and probably not to
you), but it's the best I could come up with.

Well, really the only reason why I'm even bothering to package this is because 
I'm working on an assignment which I want to make sure builds and runs on 
CentOS and OSX and making Digest::SHA::PurePerl work would be easier for me 
than making Digest::SHA build and run on these other distros. Of course, I 
know I didn't need to debianize this module for this particular purpose, but I 
thought I would take the time to package it anyway.

For anyone willing to sponsor an upload of this module, I have packages ready 
for review and upload at:
git://git.debian.org/git/pkg-perl/packages/libdigest-sha-pureperl-perl.git
http://git.debian.org/?p=pkg-perl/packages/libdigest-sha-pureperl-
perl.git;a=summary

Thanks in advance.

Please don't. Pure perl packages are not needed in the archive except
for specific corner cases, and this is obviously not one.

Ok. I've moved the packaging to svn with the rest of the Perl modules. 
Packaging is now at:
Vcs-Svn: svn://svn.debian.org/pkg-perl/trunk/libdigest-sha-pureperl-perl/
Vcs-Browser:
 http://svn.debian.org/viewsvn/pkg-perl/trunk/libdigest-sha-pureperl-perl/

Again, it's ready for review and upload, for anyone willing to sponsor an 
upload of this module. Thanks in advance.

Hi Andres,

are you still interested in the libdigest-sha-pureperl-perl package?
There has been no activity in the SVN (the package is still marked as
UNRELEASED).  There are also several TODO items in the changelog.

Regards,
Ansgar

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of libdigest-sha-pureperl-perl back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting libdigest-sha-pureperl-perl, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 556386 ITP: libdigest-sha-pureperl-perl -- Digest::SHA::PurePerl - Perl implementation of SHA-1/224/256/384/512
 owner 556386 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <556386@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
