Hi Dominic

As you migth already know we would like to drop libdigest-sha1-perl
at some point, see [1]. Most of the functionality (except
sha1_transform) of Digest::SHA1 is also provided by Digest::SHA.
Switching from Digest::SHA1 to Digest::SHA should be in principle as
easy as substituting the use of Digest::SHA1 with Digest::SHA.

Digest::SHA is in Perl core since version 5.9.3 and thus is in
Debian's perl since Lenny.

Changing use of Digest::SHA1 to Digest::SHA would thus reduce external
dependencies by one.


There are "long time" no new upstream versions, but popcon is high for
libcache-perl. and it has liburi-fetch-perl reccomending
libcache-perl. Could you apply the patch for this?
