Severity: minor
Tags: patch pending

Dear maintainer,

README.Debian containts advice about libnet config which has been wrong
for more than a decade, when the libnet config was moved to /etc/perl.

I've prepared an NMU for debget (versioned as 1.6+nmu4) and
uploaded it to DELAYED/XX. Please feel free to tell me if I
should delay it longer.

 This program uses Perl's Net::FTP library to do its FTP transfers.  The
-library has global configuration information stored (with our current
-Perl layout) in /usr/lib/perl5/Net/  If you need to, eg, have

-configured to use a proxy, and probably other things.
-The Debian package which contains Net::FTP doesn't give you a good way
-to customize this file right now, though.  If you know what changes you
-need to make to it you can either make them by hand every time you update
-libnet-perl, or divert the package's copy of this file.
-If you don't know what changes you need to make, download the source
-package and use its interactive configuration program:
-    debget --unpack libnet-perl &&
-	cd libnet-perl-* &&
-	perl Configure
-This will create a file called "libnet.cfg" in the source directory,
-it can be used as /usr/lib/perl5/Net/
