Default Bug#507548: ITP: libtest-needsdisplay-perl -- Ensure that tests needing a display have one

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Damyan Ivanov <dmn@debian.org>

* Package name : libtest-needsdisplay-perl
Version : 1.05
Upstream Author : Adam Kennedy <adamk@cpan.org>
* URL : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Test-NeedsDisplay/
* License : same as Perl (GPL-1+ | Artistic)
Programming Lang: Perl
Description : Ensure that tests needing a display have one

When testing GUI applications, sometimes applications or modules
absolutely insist on a display, even just to load a module without
actually showing any objects.
.
Regardless, this makes GUI applications pretty much impossible to
build and test on headless or automated systems. And it fails to the
point of not even running the Makefile.PL script because a dependency
needs a display so it can be loaded to find a version.
.
In these situations, what is needed is a fake display.
.
The Test::NeedsDisplay module will search around and try to find a way
to load some sort of display that can be used for the testing.

Test-NeedsDisplay is needed during Padre build. Will be maintained under
the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.
