Debian Perl Group - Open tasks

This page collects ideas for tasks within the ["Teams/DebianPerlGroup"]. These tasks can be worked on at DebCamp or might be tackled by volunteers "at home".



List of issues that affect our work mode and need discussion.

  • -


List of tasks that need to be performed on all/many of our packages; or maintainance tools ...

  • Work out how the applications "branch" really works.
  • Finish or just use the "unified" debian/rules (for packages with and without quilt).
  • Create the header/identifier for debian/rules that allows mass-updates.
  • Clean up the "New Packages - Work in Progress" (i.e. never uploaded) list of packages in PET.
  • Review the "Newer upstream available - Work in Progress" section in PET and file ITPs for missing packages etc.
  • Rename all source packages to lib*-perl.
  • Rewrite packagecheck (in Perl, modular, maybe not only for pkg-perl)
  • Forward all (non Debian specific) patches upstream and add the CPAN RT ids to the patch headers.
  • Fix common lintian-errors repo-wide (e.g. errors from pod2man, missing patch descriptions, ...)


Topics that don't fit in the above categories.

  • debian/copyright:
    • boilerplate for reference to changelog
    • mechanism for members to accept this procedure
