As much as I hate to say this, I think this is going to cause
compatibility problems.  Net::SMTP is part of core Perl (as of v5.7.3),
but the version you want to rely on (which you did not provide an
explicit dependency on) is from October 2014.

That basically means that no Perl on a Red Hat or CentOS system is going
to provide that support, since RHEL 7 was released in June 2014.
Providing an updated Git on those platforms would require replacing the
system Perl or parts of it, which would be undesirable.  This would
affect Debian 7 as well.

We currently support Perl 5.8 [0], so if you want to remove support for
Net::SMTP::SSL, I'd recommend a solution that works with that version.

[0] I personally believe we should drop support for Perl older than
5.10.1 (if not newer), but that's my opinion and it isn't shared by
other list regulars.
