Package: mariadb-client-10.1
Version: 10.1.26-0+deb9u1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
$ mytop
Can't locate Config/IniFiles.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Config::IniFiles module) (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.24.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.24.1 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl5/5.24 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.24 /usr/share/perl/5.24 /usr/local/lib/site_perl /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl-base) at /usr/bin/mytop line 18.

$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/mytop
mariadb-client-10.1: /usr/bin/mytop

$ apt-cache show mariadb-client-10.1| egrep '(Dep|Rec|Sug)'
Depends: debianutils (>= 1.6), mariadb-client-core-10.1 (>= 10.1.26-0+deb9u1), perl:any, libaio1 (>= 0.3.93), libc6 (>= 2.17), libjemalloc1 (>= 2.1.1), libpcre3, libstdc++6 (>= 5.2), libsystemd0, zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.0)
Recommends: libdbd-mysql-perl (>= 1.2202), libdbi-perl, libterm-readkey-perl

I was expecting the mariadb-client package would have
libconfig-inifiles-perl set as a Dependency.

Please can you fix this in the stable version?
