in thread CPAN Testers makefile problem


I asked for the makefile to a few of the testers, but couldn't get it. But now that you say it... checked the makefile generated on my system and found out the problem. What the heck. All because of the code generating META.yaml, with my name:

494: $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) 'license: ~' >> META_new.yml 495: $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) 'author: ' >> META_new.yml 496: $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) ' - Alberto Simões <>' > +> META_new.yml 497: $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) 'generated_by: ExtUtils::MakeMake +r version 6.44' >> META_new.yml 498: $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) 'distribution_type: module' >> META_ne +w.yml
And, yes, this fails for just a few systems (mainly VMS and Solaris). Solved, in any case. I need to change my name.

    Five Makefile.PL edited. Five Changes files edited. Five .pm files edited. Five $VERSION variables bumped by 0.01. Five make dists. Five modules uploads.
