This web space is for reporting on the
it will determine the version number of each module in the phalanx
100, its version number as
, an Ubuntu package, and a debian etch package. These
versions will hopefully provide an idea of the process a perl
module takes as it goes from CPAN to a debian-based
distribution. More tests will be done later, mostly aimed at
determining suitability of packageing and trying to assess the points
where CPAN and debian intersect.
I imagine an alioth-like space where developers would have access
to a mini cpan that would
get turned into a debian package, built in a cowbuilder, go through a complete lintian test, and perhaps other
perl specific or debian specific tests. All of this would be automated so one would be able to read a report
on a particular module and its 'debianification' before it gets packaged. Hopefully this would catch potential
bugs and provide further quality assurance for debian's perl packages.
