| The reasoning is following:
| - According to the Perl developers the current stable release is 5.8.3. We
| really should not stick to the old, not really maintained release.
| - The developer of the p5-IO-INET6 port is working with perl version
| 5.8.x. I can easily test on perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x., therefore maintain the
| port. Testing on 5.005 is much more difficult for me ...
| - Please speak up (in a personal e-mail) if you want to keep the
| compatibility with 5.005_03. If I receive more than one e-mail, I will
| continue maintain the 5.005_03 compatibility.
| - Anyway there is a method to apply a patch if a certain perl version is
| not installed?
Well, until 5-STABLE is branched, we'll have too :)
the easiest thing is like it's done in mail/p5-Net-Server-Mail/Makefile
add some EXTRA_PATCHES with a patch in files directory named like I did for
