    Right, the 'conflicts' key in metadata is a bit different -- it cannot indicate things that need to be updated later, but rather indicates things that cannot be at that version number right now (when we are checking prerequisites, before installing).

    I did play around a bit with using conflicts data in some releases, but it turned out to be fairly catastrophically wrong. ;)

    With a version number of 0.014 it should be nowhere near production stability. I try to avvoid using modules with revision numbers that low.

    You're very wrong here -- you cannot assume anything about the production-worthiness of a module from its version number. Many people, Zefram and myself included, simply start numbering their releases at 0.001 and increment linearly on each subsequent release. Some modules are already excellent at 0.001 and need no furth…

    Lee, changing the dist name to 'CGI' won't affect many of the core CPAN ecosystem, because CPAN::DistnameInfo has a special rule, which means that 'CGI.pm' gets mapped to 'CGI'.

    It will actually make life easier for anyone who's grabbing the distname from the metadata, then using it to look the dist up on various systems. Currently such an approach will get a distname of 'CGI.pm', which it won't then find on various core services.

    It was me who raised the ticket :-)

    Lee: excellent! Thanks for doing that.
