Default Bug#638865: ITP: libcdb-file-perl -- Perl interface to Dan Berstein's cdb package.

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Florian Schlichting <fschlich@ZEDAT.FU-Berlin.DE>

* Package name : libcdb-file-perl
Version : 0.97
Upstream Author : Tim Goodwin <tjg@star.le.ac.uk> et al.
* URL : http://search.cpan.org/~toddr/CDB_File-0.97/
* License : GPL-1 / Artistic
Programming Lang: Perl
Description : Perl interface to Dan Berstein's cdb package.

"cdb is a fast, reliable, lightweight package for creating and
reading constant databases."

libcdb-file-perl used to be in Debian until it was removed in a Q&A
effort in 2005 (bug report at

As can be seen from the bug report, the removal had little to do with
the functionality of libcdb-file-perl but a lot with its maintenance
(upstream or in Debian). Users only noticed once the package had been
removed, but nobody stepped up to provide it again.

Upstream maintenance has changed and there seems to be a steady trickle
of new versions. I think it's time to reintroduce this package into
Debian under the umbrella of pkg-perl. (And I'm sure my boss would love
that, too...)
