This challenge is a stencil quest on questhub: in each calendar month of 2014 you have to release a distribution that you haven't released before, and write a blog post about it. This might be an entirely new distribution, one that you've adopted, or one that you're helping with.
The rules so far are:
- You have to release at least one such dist within each calendar month. You can't catch up, by releasing 12 in December.
- You must blog about the dist and link to the blog post in a comment on your quest. It doesn't matter if the blog post is in a following month.
- Renaming one of your existing dists doesn't count :-)
Come and join us!
I've just published the first full version of my review of CPAN modules for converting markdown to HTML. There's still work in progress, particularly comparing the output generated by the different modules, but it's fairly complete now.
Does anyone fancy writing a Dist::Zilla plugin that would read a Changes file in YAML and munge it to one in the CPAN::Changes::Spec format?
This post is an attempt to pull together in one place all the discussions
about a/the changelog format for CPAN modules.
CPAN::Changes::Spec defines a format to use for the file,
which is currently used by 41% of the
distributions on CPAN. Discussions are currently happening in a number of places,
including a MetaCPAN issue, a pull request, and a Questhub quest.
Based on feedback, I've made a number of changes to how the adoption list is created. They're summarised below, and described in more detail on my blog. We've had the first release from an adoption prompted by the list: Stephen Nelson has released Convert-BinHex (+1 his quest). This prompted me to create a Hall of Fame. Let me know if you adopt a module, whether it was on the list or not.
