Subject: wwwstat: Uses perl4 corelibs without Depends
Date: Sat, 11 Feb 2012 00:04:59 +0000
Package: wwwstat
Version: 2.0-6
Severity: normal
Usertags: perl4-corelibs

Dear maintainer,

This package 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.
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.
