Hi All;

I wouldn't normally pester the list about these, but since I am
building debian packages, hopefully for inclusion in the main archive,
I am feeling fussier than usual.

The first warning is:

WARNING: VERSION takes a string/number not a version reference.
         Please inform the author.

I'm not sure exactly what is going on here, but I did notice that 
META.yml ends with

version: !!perl/hash:version
  qv: 1
    - 0
    - 994
    - 0

The second warning is 

Warning: prerequisite SVK 2.0.0 not found. We have v2.0.1.

a) Can someone explain why I get this warning for SVK, but not for
SVN::Core, where I also have a higher version installed?

b) Is this something I should worry about in the debian package? I
can insist on exactly version 2.0.0 of svk, but it will cause people
problems, since they will not be able to upgrade svk without
deinstalling pushmi.


Thanks for any feedback,
