Bug Description

The Perl module Email::Send is deprecated in favor of Email::Sender (and has been for years):

This came to my attention with the discovery that Debian testing no longer includes a libemail-send-perl package.

Options for a fix include:

[1] Switching to Email::Sender
[2] Just installing Email::Send from CPAN for Jessie.
[3] Do option #2 for the 2.7.0 release, then follow up with #1.

Evergreen master

It came to my attention recently, too. IIRC, I saw the messages in the logs when looking into something else.

Changed in evergreen:

Here is a working branch with the changes to switch from the no longer existing debian package to using cpan.;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/user/stompro/lp1362260-jessie-email-send-make

I'm testing with 2.8.0 and it seems to have worked fine.

Now that jessie is officially released, users following the install instructions are getting an error from make due to this.

Picked to master and backported to rel_2_8 and rel_2_7 to provide better Debian Jessie support. Thanks Josh!

We may still want to pursue Galen's note about option 1 and reworking Evergreen to use the newer module.
