Subject: deprecated

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: libdigest-sha1-perl
Version: 2.13-1
Severity: wishlist

This is apparently deprecated, since perl has Digest::SHA built-in
with a similar interface, as well as larger shasum variants.

        use Digest::SHA1  qw(sha1 sha1_hex sha1_base64);

        use Digest::SHA qw(sha1 sha1_hex sha1_base64 ...);

I think the package description should mention that, at least, to
prevent more rdepends accidentially being added.
