Ubuntu touch comes with package perl-base instead of
perl since OTA-5 to save 17MB root-fs. Previous versions
had a full perl package aboard. According to the
developers, none of the packages delivered with the base
system (apt-)depends on perl.
I checked syncevolution-common and it does neither. So
should syncevolution-common add a dependency to perl?
It's not a hard dependency, more like a recommendation.
is there maybe a way to do a detailed compare without the
Base64 and MD5 modules from package perl.
There's a long-standing feature request to rewrite synccompare in C++,
but no-one had the interest and time to do it.
