Use 'Dapper' to maintain web sites?

Looking through the listings of static web site generators for ones implemented in Perl I found one that has been available has been Dapper, a "publishing tool for static websites".  I thought about using it and as usual I checked to see if it something that is already in Debian. I found that there had been an WNPP (Work-Needing and Prospective Package) bug open about it, # 783868, which had been closed for the following reason:
"dapper is not suitable for Debian. It is not maintained and one of its
dependency recommending a module that doesn't work with modern versions
of perl"
That was back in June of 2015 and is still true today; the most recent version (v0.18) was released in May of 2014 and there have been no updates since.  And given that issue regarding the dependence, it would have to be updated even to use privately. So, at least for now, I think I'll look elsewhere.
