Default Bug#620180: ITP: liblwp-protocol-https-perl -- https driver for LWP::UserAgent

Package: wnpp
Owner: Nicholas Bamber <nicholas@periapt.co.uk>
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org,debian-perl@lists.debian.org

* Package name : liblwp-protocol-https-perl
Version : 6.02
Upstream Author : Gisle Aas <gisle@activestate.com>
* URL : http://search.cpan.org/dist/LWP-Protocol-https/
* License : Artistic or GPL-1+
Programming Lang: Perl
Description : https driver for LWP::UserAgent

The LWP::Protocol::https module provide support for using https schemed URLs
with LWP. LWP::Protocol::https is a plug-in to the LWP protocol handling, so
you don't use it directly. Once the module is installed LWP is able to
access

sites using HTTP over SSL/TLS.

If hostname verification is requested by LWP::UserAgent's ssl_opts, and
neither SSL_ca_file nor SSL_ca_path is set, then SSL_ca_file is implied
to be

the one provided by Mozilla::CA. If the Mozilla::CA module isn't available
SSL requests will fail. Either install this module, set up an alternative
SSL_ca_file or disable hostname verification.

This module used to be bundled with the libwww-perl, but it was unbundled in
v6.02 in order to be able to declare its dependencies properly for the CPAN
tool-chain. Applications that need https support can just declare their
dependency on LWP::Protocol::https and will no longer need to know what
underlying modules to install.
