Cool. I'm running Dapper too. After an "apt-get update" I got a handful
of hits, but nowhere near what I'd hope to see.

It's a shame there isn't a libtask-catalyst-perl there, but it's good to
know that "apt-get install libcatalyst-perl" seems to work.

I'm always worried by statements like "Everything else i had to grab
from CPAN.". I don't want a managed Catalyst install, then the rest of
my system filled with CPAN installed modules.

I guess that's an issue I need to pursue further myself (getting an
up-to-date CPANPLUS package would be nice, but dh-make-perl barfs quite
early in the process).

Thanks for the heads-up though, it's one less thing to worry about.
