Dear Perl maintainers:
This package has not had a maintainer upload in some time, so maybe it
will eventually need to be NMUed again.
Would be possible for you to suggest a good fix for this bug?
The regexp quoted by Sven is used in this way:
$1 > 9 or ($1 == 9 and $2 >= '20120909') or error('debhelper 9.20120909 or later required');
So what is really required here is to check that this is true:
$Debian::Debhelper::Dh_Version::version >= "9.20120909"
in the dpkg-version sense, but surely there is already a perl module
to compare Debian version numbers "the right way"...
