Subject: texlive-base: Uses perl4 corelibs without Depends
Date: Sat, 11 Feb 2012 00:02:23 +0000
Package: texlive-base
Version: 2009-15
Severity: normal
User: debian-perl@lists.debian.org
Usertags: perl4-corelibs

Dear maintainer,

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

usr/share/texmf-texlive/scripts/tetex/updmap.pl:22 newgetopt.pl

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.
We'd like to have this in place for wheezy, so that we can follow
cleanly the upstream deprecation cycle in wheezy+1.

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.

AFAICT this file is shipped, b/c we forgot to remove from the
package.  The version really used is installed in /usr/bin.  We'll
remove it when packaging TL 2011/12.  B/c nobody will ever use that
script I lower the severity to minor.
