Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author:: namespace

Following the lead of Mike Doherty (DOHERTY) I've moved my own Dist::Zilla Author PluginBundle into a new namespace:


Having Author PluginBundles is a great system for saving me time and allowing others to build my modules with ease. However I had to agree to Mike's point that polluting the Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle:: namespace wasn't so cool. It also makes things more clear in the dist.ini file:


If you have an Author PluginBundle, please consider moving it into this new namespace. You can of course keep the old one around, in parallel, until code using it has moved off to the backpan.

I mentioned this to RJBS about a year ago, and he didn’t think Author:: namespace is necessary. Would be interesting to see whether he has changed his mind about this.
