           Summary: Automate Perl spells version upgrades
           Product: Codex
           Version: devel grimoire
          Platform: Other

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: perl-cpan

Lyon Lemmens, a former perl-cpan maintainer, left me three rudimentary scripts
to auto-upgrade Perl spells. I am attaching them to this bug. This bug is to
track the task of taking this code and makeing it work similar to existing
script in php-pear section. Volunteers are welcome.

I've got a rudimentary script (actually 3 that work together), I've attached

cpan_check        checks CPAN for new versions
md5               replaces the MD5 lines with the correct checksum
bump              version-bump a spell
