A couple of patches from Debian
Message ID:
Hi all,

I am one of the members of the Debian Perl Group [0] (our role is basically 
maintaining Perl modules, including Moose, in Debian). 

As part of this work we are applying a couple of small patches to the Moose
package which I think may be of some interest to you (I've attached them
to this mail, since I don't have commit rights for the Moose git 

* Work around a numification problem on ia64

This basically fixes a test failure on the ia64 (Itanium) architecture. 
This has been already reported as RT#59478 [1] and perl #77456 [2], and 
seems to be already fixed in perl itself (commit a42d02426c, from v5.13.8).

* Fix small POD errors

This just fixes a couple of POD errors found by pod2man.

Both the patches are quite trivial (1-2 lines changed), apply to the
'master' branch (as per Moose::Manual::Contributing for small fixes) and
are generated using git-format-patch, so that they can be easily merged
using git-am.
