This package consists of a Perl module for all kinds of date calculations
based on the Gregorian calendar (the one used in all western countries today),
thereby complying with all relevant norms and standards: ISO/R 2015-1971, DIN
1355 and, to some extent, ISO 8601 (where applicable).
This module is a direct translation of Steffen Beyer's excellent Date::Calc
module to Perl.

libdate-pcalc-perl (6.1-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload
* add a patch to fix tests that are broken since 1 Jan 2015
the tests were hardcoding years like 64 that was interpreted as '1964'
until 31 Dec 2014 and now are interpreted as 2064, causing test failures.
The patch chooses the year dynamically to get consistent results
regardless of the current year. (Closes: #775632)
