  • Ether commented on Give your module a good SEE ALSO section

    Something to remember for all of Neil's excellent posts in this series - if you don't have any distributions of your own that you can patch, you can patch other people's distributions!

  • Neil Bowers commented on Give your module a good SEE ALSO section

    Bit of wishful thinking there @ether? Got some nasty bugs you're hoping someone else will fix for you? ;-)

  • Toby Inkster commented on Link to public version control system (GitHub or otherwise)

    The reason for the dramatic improvement you see may be a "CPAN Day" blip. Looking at the last 2000 uploads (as of now), 16% of them were uploaded by just one person - a person who happens to be quite consistent at including repository details with his releases.

  • Toby Inkster commented on Link to public version control system (GitHub or otherwise)

    META.json allows two main fields for the repository - a URI for a web link, and also a VCS-specific string which often looks something like a URI. (There's a third field for the repo type - "git", "svn", "hg", etc.)

    META.yml has a single field, so if there's no META.json, MetaCPAN probably has to guess what type of link it's looking at.

    So I suppose what type of repository link you get is dependent on whether your distribution includes META.json, META.yml, or both. And if META.json, which of the two repository fields is populated.

  • Dana Jacobsen commented on Link to public version control system (GitHub or otherwise)

    Thanks for the reminder. It looks like two modules I updated for CPAN day aren't showing up because I forgot to add the meta-spec entry. I made sure I added the repository, but it seems without that it just tosses everything but the homepage.
