Package: libdatetime-astro-sunrise-perl
Version: 0.01.01-3


would it be possible to fold libdatetime-astro-sunrise-perl into 

libdatetime-astro-sunrise-perl originates as a test made by the upstream 
developer ([1] is clearly marked in red and bold as "** DEVELOPER 
RELEASE **"). The upstream developer has later moved to release a 
slightly better library DateTime::Event::Sunrise. There is no point in 
having both libdatetime-astro-sunrise-perl and 

The original reason for packaging DateTime::Astro::Sunrise in 2007 was

 > Note: There are several similar modules in CPAN. I chose to package

Now that these compatibility issues are moot, is it possible to move to 
the "newer" library?
