Dang, I missed that when I was checking the output for sanity. The comparison in the patch is too simplistic ... to catch this case I think up2date-ng.pl would need to generate a list of version numbers from CPAN with zeroes in place of the decimal points (instead of having the decimal points stripped). /me goes to check if the same process would work for version numbers on the Perl ebuilds -- Daniel Westermann-Clark -- gentoo-perl@g.o mailing list
