in reply to When to bundle Perl with your app?

In the case of Mojolicious you shouldn't worry. I have the latest running fine on Debian squeeze, Perl 5.10.1.

This sort of discussion is a little bit overdone. If you ask a developer, you should always install the latest and greatest. If you ask a sysadmin, you should install via apt-get from stable to allow automated updates.

    I've got a foot in both camps, and I say that your application plus its dependencies (perl itself is a dependency) should be built as debs, which you store in your own corporate repository, which have minimal dependencies on Debian's own packages, and which install in somewhere like /opt/companyname/...
