    Hi Konstantin,

    I'll cover this sort of thing in the next article, but to add develop dependencies via Makefile.PL/ExtUtils::MakeMaker you use META_MERGE. For example:

        META_MERGE => {
            "meta-spec" => { version => 2 },
            prereqs => {
                develop => {
                    requires => {
                        'Template' => 0,

Develop dependencies (like Pod::Perldoc, Devel::, Benchmark, TAP::Parser::* or CPAN::*), build dependencies (ExtUtils::*, Module::*), runtime dependencies (Unicode stuff and pragmas) and of course tons of stuff no one really uses nowadays (NBDM, ODBM, SBDM interfaces, ptar, zipdetails binaries).

    * The author page says I have two failing modules, but the module page only lists one with my name on it.
    * The link to the failure log gives me a 404.

    Thx for all your hard work!
