in reply to mbtiny and Minilla workflow - one rev behind in CPAN

I've used Minilla for a few of my modules, but had never heard of mbtiny. What benefit does mbtiny give you / can you do without it?

    I'm using mbtiny to generate these files: Build.PL, MANIFEST, META.json, and META.yml. If Minilla will handle those then I could drop mbtiny. Maybe I'm causing more problems with including META.yml since it seems to be just for legacy tools. I'll see if I can figure that out.

      Minilla did generate all of those for my modules. Build.PL and META.json were generated by "minil new", and the other two by "minil release".

        What OS are you using? I'm using Windows which seems to be the root of this problem. It turns out that the META.json file that Minilla created has backslashes in the module path. CPAN won't index it with backslashes in the path. roboticus pointed out the possibility of this being a problem but I didn't follow up since the first release worked eventually.

        Last night I created a new distribution with Minilla and manually fixed the path before manually uploading to CPAN. That worked.
