Apologies, seems nobody from us responded (again)..

I've been rewriting the install-module script and the release-team
scripts in Python. Still thinking about how to handle the Perl bindings,
but so far:
1. The new install-module does support the perl versioning
2. It isn't aware which perl version belongs to which GNOME release

I think it would be beneficial to have the tarball names start with
'perl-'. This, if the directory within also starts with 'perl-'.

I'm planning to severely restrict the shell access to,
so I want all issues resolved in a nice way. I think if we'd:
1. have perl-*.tar.xz on
2. some way to link the bindings to GNOME versions

We could update our scripts to understand above.

Uploading tarballs will be allowed btw. I think to link tarball names I
probably just define a file 'perl-$GNOME_VER.versions', with contents:
  # module:version

Then our scripts could understand this... and to link perl bindings to
GNOME versions, you could just upload this special file with
install-module (IMPORTANT: before a GNOME release).

Note: I usually do not release GNOME and not sure what the plan is in
relation to gobject-introspection.

I also need to discuss with the rest of the team (whom seem busy).

Above sound like a good idea? Btw: Please do not do anything until
everyone agrees :-)
