Re: Debian sitting on Perl bugs
Message ID:
Today around 4:55pm, Darren/Torin/Who Ever... hammered out this masterpiece:

: I'll do that.  Rather than forward everything, I'll forward any of the
: bugs that aren't packaging errors.
: Also, I suspect that you don't want me to report bugs that have been
: fixed in bleedperl, or do you?

For completness, I'd suggest just sending them.  The Bug Squashing
Team can close the bugs if they are taken care of in all relevant
versions of Perl.

: What format does perlbug expect?  I noticed that there is a bounce bug
: class for bugs in the right format.  This means that I need to know what
: format that would be.

Perl comes with the ``perlbug'' program.  You can use it to file bug
reports, it takes care of all the dirty work, you just pick a
category, sevarity, title and throw the body in ( having a
reproducable test case helps bunches ) and perlbug sends your report.

: Choosing the spec link at the bottom of the page at
: gives me "Invalid request (specification)".  I was
: able to hit and read some of
: what I would need.
