commit 2d3fb0f86aa537e8108d5ceefec4d5d74f1dbf5e
Author: gregor herrmann <>
Date:   Thu Dec 31 00:55:16 2015 +0100

    Convert package to arch:all.
    On perl >= 5.13.9, where the Socket module also provides the same functions,
    this module neither needs nor builds the XS version.
    Closes: #809394

  This module uses underlying C code to do most of the work if possible, but can
  also fall back on some mostly-compatible emulation code written in Perl. This
  means that this module is a fairly portable implementation of these functions.
+ .
+ As of Perl version 5.14.0, Perl already supports `getaddrinfo' in core. On
+ such a system, this module simply uses the functions provided by `Socket',
+ and does not need to use its own compiled XS, or pure-perl legacy emulation.
+ .
+ As `Socket' in core now provides all the functions also provided by this
+ module, it is likely this may be the last released version of this module.
+ And code currently using this module would be advised to switch to using core
+ `Socket' instead.
