libset-intspan-perl (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description

The package libset-intspan-perl is already in Ubuntu universe.
The package libset-intspan-perl builds for the architectures it is designed to work on.
It currently builds and works for architectures: <all> (perl package)
Link to package [[https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libset-intspan-perl|libset-intspan-perl]]

 - The package libset-intspan-perl is required in Ubuntu main for libstring-copyright-perl (dependency of licensecheck)
 - The package libset-intspan-perl will not generally be useful for a large part of our user base, but is important/helpful still because it comes as a requirement for licensecheck.
 - The package libset-intspan-perl is a new runtime dependency of package libstring-copyright-perl that we already support (as a dependency of licensecheck)

 - No CVEs/security issues in this software in the past

 - no `suid` or `sgid` binaries (it's a Perl library)
 - no executables in `/sbin` and `/usr/sbin`
 - Package does not install services, timers or recurring jobs
 - Packages does not open privileged ports (ports < 1024)
 - Packages does not contain extensions to security-sensitive software
   (filters, scanners, plugins, UI skins, ...)

[Quality assurance - function/usage]
 - The package works well right after install

    $ apt install libset-intspan-perl
    $ perl -e 'use Set::IntSpan'
    $ echo $?
    > 0

[Quality assurance - maintenance]
 - The package is maintained well in Debian/Ubuntu and has not too many and long term critical bugs open
   - Ubuntu https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libset-intspan-perl/+bug
   - Debian https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?src=libset-intspan-perl
 - The package does not deal with exotic hardware we cannot support

[Quality assurance - testing]
 - The package runs a test suite on build time, if it fails
   it makes the build fail, link to build log:

 - The package runs an autopkgtest, and is currently passing on
   this amd64 list of architectures, link to test logs:

 - The package does have no failing autopkgtests right now

[Quality assurance - packaging]
 - debian/watch is present and works

 - This package does not yield massive lintian Warnings, Errors
 - The packaging was old but the Debian maintainers kindly accepted to roll out
   a new version in Debian unstable with patches to the packaging from the last few years.
 - Output to recent lintian run

    Running lintian...
    E: libset-intspan-perl changes: bad-distribution-in-changes-file jammy
    W: libset-intspan-perl: changelog-distribution-does-not-match-changes-file (unstable != jammy)
    W: libset-intspan-perl changes: distribution-and-changes-mismatch jammy unstable
    W: libset-intspan-perl source: newer-standards-version 4.6.0 (current is 4.5.1)

    I: Lintian run was successful.

 - Lintian overrides are not present

 - This package does not rely on obsolete or about to be demoted packages.
 - This package has no python2 or GTK2 dependencies

 - The package will be installed by default, but does not ask debconf
   questions higher than medium

 - Packaging and build is easy, content of d/rules:

    #!/usr/bin/make -f

            dh $@

[UI standards]
 - Application is not end-user facing (does not need translation)

 - No further depends or recommends dependencies that are not yet in main

[Standards compliance]
 - This package correctly follows FHS and Debian Policy

 - Owning Team will be Foundations team
 - Team is not yet, but will subscribe to the package before promotion

 - This does not use static builds
 - This does not use vendored code

[Background information]
 - The Package description explains the package well
 - Upstream Name is Set-IntSpan
 - Link to upstream project https://metacpan.org/release/Set-IntSpan

Review for Package: libset-intspan-perl

MIR team ACK. Small package, nothing special to note. No TODO or recommendations. Thanks for the complete bug description. Do not forget to subscribe fundation team to the package bugs before asking for promotion.
This does not need a security review.

There is no other package in main providing the same functionality.

- no other Dependencies to MIR due to this
  - checked with check-mir
  - not listed in seeded-in-ubuntu
  - none of the (potentially auto-generated) dependencies (Depends
    and Recommends) that are present after build are not in main
- no -dev/-debug/-doc packages that need exclusion
- No dependencies in main that are only superficially tested requiring
  more tests now.

[Embedded sources and static linking]
- no embedded source present
- no static linking
- does not have odd Built-Using entries

- not a go package, no extra constraints to consider in that regard

- history of CVEs does not look concerning
- does not run a daemon as root
- does not use webkit1,2
- does not use lib*v8 directly
- does not parse data formats
- does not open a port/socket
- does not process arbitrary web content
- does not use centralized online accounts
- does not integrate arbitrary javascript into the desktop
- does not deal with system authentication (eg, pam), etc)
- does not deal with security attestation (secure boot, tpm, signatures)

[Common blockers]
- does not FTBFS currently
- does have a test suite that runs at build time
   - test suite fails will fail the build upon error.
- does have a non-trivial test suite that runs as autopkgtest
- no new python2 dependency

[Packaging red flags]
- Ubuntu does not carry a delta
- symbols tracking not applicable for this kind of code.
- d/watch is present and looks ok (if needed, e.g. non-native)
- Upstream update history is slow, but it does not need regular maintainance.
- Debian/Ubuntu update history is slow, but it does not need regular maintainance.
- the current release is packaged
- promoting this does not seem to cause issues for MOTUs that so far
- no massive Lintian warnings
- d/rules is rather clean
- It is not on the lto-disabled list

[Upstream red flags]
- no Errors/warnings during the build
- no incautious use of malloc/sprintf (as far as we can check it)
- no use of sudo, gksu, pkexec, or LD_LIBRARY_PATH (usage is OK inside tests)
- no use of user nobody
- no use of setuid
- no important open bugs (crashers, etc) in Debian or Ubuntu
- no dependency on webkit, qtwebkit, seed or libgoa-*
- not part of the UI for extra checks
