Re: proper way of packaging a GPLed perl script

I used GPLed perl scripts all the time.
The best way IMHO is to 

1. Create an MakeMaker package
2. Use that to create a PPM and a tgz distribution.
3. From that you can create a debian package and a RPM
for installing.
That way the user has many ways to install, but a

makemaker and a tgz would be the minimum.

Check www.perlmonks.org and search for packaging and
makemaker for lots of information.
