I’m building some Twitter apps in openSUSE 11.2 using the Perl Twitter API library. Unfortunately, what’s in Index of /repositories/devel:/languages:/perl/openSUSE_11.2 is release 2.12 of “perl-net-Twitter”. Upstream (CPAN) has 3.x already, and there’s also a “Net::Twitter::Lite” in CPAN that’s not even in the OBS repository. How do I go about requesting / helping get these packages updated?
For now, I’m loading the packages directly from CPAN, which mostly works, as far as I can tell, but there could be hidden gotchas with a mixed CPAN / openSUSE system.
