Dear debian people,

Please fix the package naming rules that make the perl interface for libcurl end up being called "libwww-curl-perl". This is confusingly similar to the perl interface to libwww which incidently is called "libwww-perl". Oddly enough, "libwww-curl-perl" has nothing to do with libwww, but the Debian naming rules make it look so.

The perl binding for libcurl would of course be called "libcurl-perl" if libwww and libcurl were treated equally.

(Yes, I know the perl-binding for libcurl is put in the WWW section in CPAN, but that is not a good excuse for Debian to prefix the package with libwww.)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
