Package: libdatetime-astro-sunrise-perl
Version: 0.01.01-3


would it be possible to fold libdatetime-astro-sunrise-perl into libdatetime-event-sunrise-perl?

libdatetime-astro-sunrise-perl originates as a test made by the upstream developer ([1] is clearly marked in red and bold as "** DEVELOPER RELEASE **"). The upstream developer has later moved to release a slightly better library DateTime::Event::Sunrise. There is no point in having both libdatetime-astro-sunrise-perl and libdatetime-event-sunrise-perl.

The original reason for packaging DateTime::Astro::Sunrise in 2007 was

> Note: There are several similar modules in CPAN. I chose to package
> this one because it returns a simple DateTime object. Astro::Sunrise
> returns a hard to manipulate time string, and the newer
> DateTime::Event::Sunrise returns a DateTime::Set that is not
> compatible with the current 0.25 release of DateTime::Set.

Now that these compatibility issues are moot, is it possible to move to the "newer" library?
