Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.24. That is the most recent version we know about.

This package contains a program in $PATH and is named libapp-*-perl which usually implies that the upstream project on CPAN is under the App:: hierarchy for applications. Instead of libfoo-bar-perl it should be named foo-bar.

People tend to skip library-like named packages when looking for applications in the package list and hence wouldn't notice this package.
