Make me do some work, via Questhub!

I'm on a quest to fix up the Changes file for at least 10 distributions on CPAN. For every additional 'like' I get on my quest, I'll fix up another dist. This was inspired by a recent entry on the CPAN Testers blog, which mentioned Brian Cassidy's CPAN::Changes Kwalitee Service. The service shows how many dists have conforming Changes files, and results for recent uploads.

The first dist I updated was App::highlight. I submitted a pull request, and as a result Alex (the author) updated the rest of his dists (check the update time on all his dists). I love Questhub!

I have created a stencil (pre-scripted quest) for updating 5 dists. If you want to help, you can sign up for the quest. But if you're too lazy busy to fix up some dists, at least join Questhub and like my quest. For every like I get, I'll update another dist.

"But wait", I hear you say, "isn't this shameless pimping of your Questhub score in an attempt to oust Toby from the top of the leader board?". Damn straight! But CPAN benefits, and all you need to do is sign up and click a few buttons ('like' my other quests while you're there ;-).
