If you are a Perl module author, you probably know quite a bit about Perl,
modules and CPAN. You probably know about Debian Linux. There's even a decent
chance you've used it. However, there's only a very slim chance that you
maintain Debian packages for your modules.
Let's assume that this at least vaguely describes you. If someone told you
that you could flip a switch, and then every time you released a module to
CPAN, it went to Debian (perfectly packaged to their standards), you'd
probably flip that switch.
This module aspires to be that switch. It wants you to be a Debian Maintainer
for free. You may end up becoming a full fledged Debian guru one day, but for
now you just want to see your code available to a whole new world, without
having to know the details. As long as this switch doesn't tell you
otherwise, you know that you did the all right things.
This module is just a helping hand that automates all the standard best
practices for you. It bends over backwards to help you get that module to
Debian without having to know any more than is expected of a busy Perl module
author, like you.
Specifically it uses things like `dh-make-perl', `debuild', `pbuilder' and
`lintian'. If you've never heard of these things, that's ok. Until this week,
neither did I. They all do a lot of work, and they aren't that hard to use,
but the learning curve is quite high. As soon as Debian::Perl is stable and
shipping all my CPAN modules to Debian, I plan to forget about them as quickly
as possible. :)
