a bit of dwimery in magpie

all the pieces were available, binding them together was just a smop. therefore magpie just got a new subcommand: "magpie dwim" which does exactly what i mean...

in the case of magpie, what i mean is of course:
  • check which perl packages are not up to date wrt cpan
  • check them out
  • tighten spec file
  • update the package to latest version
  • commit result
  • wait for build system if needed
  • submit result
and all of this is done in parallel, with errors reported at the end.
you too can have some fun:
$ sudo urpmi magpie
$ magpie dwim

maintaining the ~2500 perl module rpm packages in mageia has never been so easy!
