You can find more information on the speaker's site:


Debian serves as a sort of 'reference' implementation of perl. Perl points to debian as an example of how to package perl for distribution. I'll show how one can package perl programs from CPAN and all the important details that go a long with packaging. This allows perl programmers to introduce there software to debian and ubuntu users and reach a larger audience, as well as bug tracking, security watch, and much more.
