  1. Bug #480533: "uninitialized value" warnings from Perl during install

    Hi d-i folks,

    I'd like to finally fix the "perl-base utf8 warning bug" (#480533)
    by moving /usr/share/perl/5.10/unicore/lib from perl into perl-base.
    Apologies for the delay, I won't bore you with my explanations.

    Is the change still OK with you this late? We think it's the right thing to
    do and I've got an ack from the release team to let the change in lenny,
    so it's all up to you.

    The fix would almost double the perl-base Installed-Size:

    > - size 925160 bytes: control archive= 3221 bytes.
    > - 958 bytes, 21 lines control
    > - 5718 bytes, 83 lines md5sums
    > + size 1027312 bytes: control archive= 15497 bytes.
    > + 960 bytes, 21 lines control
    > + 43755 bytes, 544 lines md5sums
    >
    > - Installed-Size: 2524
    > + Installed-Size: 4540


    Cheers,

    Yes. Even I don't like the solution it looks to be the best and safest
    solution to be done now.
