Description Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-12-28 00:39:07 UTC
In attempting to enable tests, I discovered this package to be broken and its not clear how or for how long.

There are no reverse dependencies so this might be a candidate for future removal if this can't be easily fixed.

Interestingly, cpanmatrix tests are green... even though this package saw its last release in 2010...
