Parse::Debian::PackageDesc - Parses Debian changes and source package files
my $changes = Parse::Debian::PackageDesc->new('/path/foo.changes');
my $source = Parse::Debian::PackageDesc->new('/path/foo.dsc');
my $pkg = Parse::Debian::PackageDesc->new($changes_or_dsc,
gpg_homedir => '/dir/gnupg');

Parse::Debian::PackageDesc parses a Debian .changes file (or a .dsc file) and allows you to retrieve its information easily. It can even check for GPG signatures, assuming you have GNUPG installed and an appropriate configuration.
Creates a new object representing the .changes or .dsc file in $path. The only valid option for %user_opts is gpg_homedir, which points to the GNUPG home directory with the appropriate options and keyrings for GPG signature validation.
Returns the changes/dsc file path (the one given in the constructor).
Returns the latest package revision date.
Returns the name of the source package.
Returns the full package version.
Returns the upstream version of the package. For native packages, the full version is returned.
Returns just the Debian revision of the package. So, if the full version is 3.15-5, it returns just 5. For native packages, "" is returned.
Returns the distribution the package is for.
Returns the urgency for the package.
Returns the package maintainer.
Returns who made the upload.
Returns a list of binary package names in the changes/dsc file.
Returns the latest package revision changelog entry.
Returns the list of files referenced by the changes/dsc file.
Returns the list of binary package files referenced by the changes/dsc file.
Returns the key id for the signature of the changes/dsc file, or undef if there was no signature or there was some error with gpg.
Returns whether the the changes/dsc file has a correct signature.
This module requires no configuration file or environment variables. However, you may want to setup a special GNUPG directory with a defined keyring to validate the GNUPG signatures.
