pwget (2010.1012+git5feaa59-2.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Fix "FTBFS with perl 5.22: Can't use 'defined(@array)'":
add (parts of) upstream commit fc6641b which removes the defined().
(Closes: #789642)
* Replace perl-modules with perl in Build-Depends.
The split was always an internal detail of src:perl, with 5.22
perl-modules is going away as a "real" package.
