Package: libfile-sharedir-perl
Version: 1.102-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

libfile-sharedir-perl is a packaging of File-ShareDir from CPAN.

File-ShareDir installs two files to the share directory, sample.txt and
subdir/sample.txt .  These files can be used for test purposes by downstream
libraries and, in fact, are used by the tests for Path-Resolver.  This means
that Path-Resolver's tests from CPAN do not pass if File-ShareDir was installed
from apt instead of from CPAN, which can lead to confusion on the part of a
user who just wants to install some libraries and move on.

I don't know the Debian packaging system, but the `rm` in this program seems
like the likely culprit:
