Subject: libperlmenu-perl: Uses perl4 corelibs without Depends

Package: libperlmenu-perl
Version: 4.0-5
Severity: normal
User: debian-perl@lists.debian.org
Usertags: perl4-corelibs

Dear maintainer,

Your package libperlmenu-perl currently uses one or more deprecated
perl 4 era packages, as shown on the lintian report[1]:

As detailed at [2] we would like you to either add a dependency on

libperl4-corelibs-perl | perl (<< 5.12.3-7)

or (ideally) to replace their use with more modern equivalents.

If you prefer, I will NMU your package with the dependency added.

The wiki page [2] has references (taken from the source of the libraries
in question) for the recommended replacement libraries.

Thanks,
Dominic.

Subject: Intent to NMU in the coming weeks
Date: Sun, 18 Mar 2012 16:22:11 +0000
Dear maintainer,

As I would like to get all of the Perl4::Corelibs issues sorted out
before wheezy releases, to ease the transition for perl 5.16 in
wheezy+1, I intend to file NMUs for these issues, adding the dependency

libperl4-corelibs-perl | perl (<< 5.12.3-7)

as per the lintian descriptions and wiki[1]. I will upload them to
DELAYED/10. If you plan to fix these bugs before wheezy and would prefer
that I *don'* provide an NMU for the issue in your package, just let me
know.

Thanks,
Dominic.

Dear maintainer,

I've prepared an NMU for libperlmenu-perl (versioned as 4.0-5.1) and
uploaded it to DELAYED/10. Please feel free to tell me if I
should delay it longer.

Regards.
