Main Inclusion Report for libtest-number-delta-perl


  1. Availability:; available for all supported architectures

  2. Rationale:

    • New build-dependency of libcairo-perl (in main).
  3. Security:

    • Pure logic Perl module used in test harnesses; no plausible security exposure, none found.
    • I (ColinWatson) performed a brief source code review and found nothing unreasonable.

  4. Quality assurance:

    • The package works out of the box with no configuration or debconf interaction.
    • In what situations does the package not work out of the box without configuration ?
    • Does the package ask any debconf questions higher than priority 'medium' ?
    • Debian bugs: none

    • Maintenance in Debian: only one upload but it was recent (August) and the maintainer is generally active.

    • Upstream is reported to be quick to respond to issues, though the module is small so there are unlikely to be many.

    • No upstream bug tracker.
    • Package does not deal with hardware directly.
  5. Standards compliance:

    • Complies with the FHS and Debian Policy as far as I can see. Entirely standard Perl module package.
    • debhelper, no patch system, no other strangeness.
  6. Dependencies:

    • All dependencies already in main.
  7. Background information:

    • Upstream call this Test::Number::Delta.
