libfile-basedir-perl (0.03-0.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* New upstream version. Closes: #453073
* Switched debian/compat to 5.
* Added a debian/watch file.
* Added libtest-pod-perl and libtest-pod-coverage-perl to
Build-Depends-Indep to enable all tests.
* Added libmodule-build-perl to Build-Depends as it's the new build system.
We're still using the old MakeMaker compatibility mode until #288806 gets
fixed by cdbs maintainers.
* Extend the clean rule to properly remove files left over by the tests.
Also remove the Makefile because it's left-over non-working without
the corresponding Build script. That way it's regenerated.
