Ok, after such a long time without a diary entry it's hard to come up with an excuse that's not lame, so I'll skip that part:-).

Last events at my company have been quite interesting and enlightening: it looks like things are shaping up now and the future seems brighter.

That same events allowed me (well, in the time between the various company meetings) to hack on a few little things and ideas.

One result is dh-make-perl a program that creates a debian package out of a perl module. It can also automagically retreive the module from CPAN. The use is as simple as:

dh-make-perl --build --install --cpan 'Some::perl::module'
You can find it in the woody distribution.

I used it to try to impress ettore and make him switch to Debian from that other distro: still no luck, but I'm confident and time is on my side ;-).
