Update spec to use current upstream
It looks like the development of Perl QT bindings takes place on code.google.com now, and releases are done as part of KDE releases.
Unfortunately there still doesn't seem to be much activity upstream, and the same tests are failing in the current stable release. I have raised the Perl 5.18 test failure issue upstream here:
Looks like upstream has pushed a fix:
The code is indeed in kde.org:
Fixing it would fix bug #991914 as well (FTBFS debconf)
I've applied the two commits from upstream (skipping a couple of hunks that didn't apply, one for the cmake buildsystem that changed a file that doesn't exist in the old CPAN version, and one for a GUI test that doesn't get run during the build anyway), and the package now builds.
I still think it would be a good idea to switch upstreams to the KDE one.
