Ok, unfortunately, I think I got your whole mail wrong. I though the SRPMs
at that link were the ones you requested to have. Not so, I guess :/

So I packaged another 45 perl modules for fun :)

Can you send me a list of all the modules you would like to see packaged
in RPMforge ? I will let my script go over them and then manually fix the
descriptions and %files sets like I did with those new 45 packages.

If I have the time tomorrow, I will do it then, but I can not promise

Kind regards,
