Thanks for the response. lore is definitely a big factor of consideration, but I would also like to make it easier for others to mirror lore w/o needing CPAN. Fwiw, CentOS 7.x does have libgit2-devel and Inline::C packaged; so that's an option, too. Given the announcement of Perl 7 today makes me a little uneasy(*), I might be a bit more inclined to introduce more functionality via Inline::C. (*) Perl 7 will probably be less painful than the Python 3 or Ruby 1.9 transitions, but those are low bars. Having "only" a ~decade-long support window for old Perl 5 stuff doesn't seem sufficient. I guess distros and users (myself included) will need to do our part to keep things from breaking and possibly extend maintenance indefinitely.
