Default Bug#464392: ITP: libdebian-package-make-perl -- Perl extension for autobuilding Debian packages

Package: wnpp
Owner: Hilko Bengen <bengen@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name : libdebian-package-make-perl
Version : 0.01
Upstream Author : myself
* URL or Web page : not published yet
* License : GPL2+
Description : Perl extension for autobuilding Debian packages

Debian::Package::Make is a module that aims to simplify the necessary
steps for completely automated builds of Debian packages and to
provide a sound base for make-*-package scripts.

This is useful for source distributions where contents change rapidly
or where peculiar licenses prohibit redistribution via public package
repositories.

I just had a look at what the other kids are doing:

dpkg: package maintenance system for Debian
dpkg-dev: package building tools for Debian
apt: Advanced front-end for dpkg
This is Debian's next generation front-end for the dpkg package
manager. [...]
devscripts: scripts to make the life of a Debian Package maintainer
easier
dh-make: tool that converts source archives into Debian package source
dh-make-perl: Create Debian packages from perl modules


I'd rather leave that as it is. The package won't be as useful for the
less free operating systems based on Debian anyhow.

Cheers,
-Hilko

That's why I wrote "operating system" in the plural form.
