Debian Perl Group

?Icon(idea.png) "Please consider joining the Debian Pkg-perl group, helping us co-maintain our packages, and having us co-maintain yours." (Gunnar Wolf (not only) in February 2006)

Task description

These are our goals:

We want to constantly improve the coverage of available perl modules in debian. Specifically, we aim to:

  • Adopt orphaned Perl module packages.
  • Handle the RFP of Perl modules.
  • Document and improve the usage of tools like dh-make-perl.
  • Help with bugs in Perl packages.
  • Keeping Perl packages in the Debian archive as up-to-date as possible.

(Source: http://pkg-perl.alioth.debian.org/goals.txt - June 2004)


Interacting with the team

  • Email: ?MailTo(debian-perl AT lists DOT debian DOT org)

  • IRC: #debian-perl on irc.debian.org (OFTC)

How to get involved

A good way to get involved is to introduce yourself on the mailing list. A simple email about yourself saying what your goals are, how you might like to contribute, and what you would like to get from the group is the standard introduction protocol. It does not have to be formal of course. Here is a recent example: [http://lists.debian.org/debian-perl/2007/12/msg00062.html example introduction email]

After that it is simply a matter of finding modules or packages that you use or are interested in. Follow the guide for subversion (link above) and you are off and running!
