liblocale-gettext-perl (1.05-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Put ${perl:Depends} back into Pre-Depends. The revert in 1.05-2 was
wrong. The pre-dependency is needed to make sure that the right perl
version is unpacked before liblocale-gettext-perl so that any
script/module using Locale::Gettext (still) work once this module
has been unpacked. This is particulary important for transitions like
perl-5.8 -> perl-5.10 (see #479220 for example).
* New patch debian/patches/compatibility-with-POSIX-module.diff so that
Locale::Gettext re-exports the LC_* constants coming from POSIX instead
of those coming from its own XS implementation. Closes: #479803
