Debian users are likely to look for perl modules by their name, e.g. Foo::Bar, not by package name (libfoo-bar-perl). To make this easier, the main module name should be present in the long package description.

The following 185 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 186 times (in any Lintian version).

We found 2 overrides. The tag performed 99% of the time.
