p5-html-mason: upgrade, remove support for Apache 1, make it work with multiple versions of Perl

I'm attaching a patch to upgrade p5-html-mason. The tests set succeeds for 5.16, but there are some problems:

  • Is dependency on mod_perl[2] needed?
  • Can we drop support for mod_perl (Apache 1)
  • I can remove dependency on mod_perl2, then p5.20-html-mason builds ok, but it tries to install everything for 5.16 instead of 5.20

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

While p5-html-mason and friends may be used with mod_perl, mod_perl2, there is no requirement to do so. It works equally well in CGI web applications and even as a stand alone templating solution for non-web applications. No direct dependency on mod_perl or libapreq for build or test. The mod_perl variants are, therefore, unnecessary and just add confusion when implementing multiple perl support.

Support for 5.18 5.20 added in r132728 and +mod_perl +mod_perl2 variants removed. Support for 5.18 5.20 added to dependents in r132729, r132730.
