  Description     : Perl client Interface to SSH

Net::SSH::Perl is an all-Perl module implementing an SSH client.
It is compatible with both the SSH-1 and SSH-2 protocols.
.
Net::SSH::Perl enables you to simply and securely execute commands on remote
machines, and receive the STDOUT, STDERR, and exit status of a remote command.
It contains built-in support for various methods of authenticating and
completely implements the I/O buffering, packet transport, and authentication
layers in pure Perl.
.
One advantage to using Net::SSH::Perl over wrapper-style implementations of
ssh clients is that it saves on process overhead. Depending on the amount of
time and memory needed to fork a process, this win can be quite substantial;
particularly if you're running in a persistent Perl environment (mod_perl,
for example), where forking a new process is a drain on process and memory
resources.

See #469878[1]. libnet-ssh-perl-perl was already once in Debian but
then removed. Does the above still holds? If it needs Math::Pari then
it cannot be packaged for Debian.

Indeed, it does. It seems a colleague packaged Math::Pari locally and
I didn't see it's not in Debian. That said, I'm not sure what the
problem with Math::Pari and/or the dependency is exactly. Would it
help if I package Math::Pari for Debian, too?

As far as I can see there is no header file (as in *.h) present in the
Math::Pari nor the Net::SSH::Perl package. Maybe this has been fixed?
Or am I on the wrong track here?

Thank you for your hint on this!

Best
Max

Right now don't remember the details to state them here, but there is
some discussion on the recent libmath-pari-perl[1], this is the most
recent libmath-pari-perl ITP I found, but there where at least one
more in the past.

 [1] http://bugs.debian.org/696836

Would one of the alternatives to libnet-ssh-perl-perl help you? E.g.
there are libnet-ssh2-perl, libnet-ssh-perl, covering similar
functionaliies?

Hope that helps,

Salvatore
