in reply to Sane deprecation policy for a CPAN module?

Thanks for asking this -- it made me realise I'm a CPAN Module Versioning ignoramus and further need to update Writing Solid CPAN Modules with advice on CPAN Module Versioning. I've listed some software versioning references below. Suggestions for other good references on software and CPAN module versioning welcome.

Software Versioning

Perl CPAN Module Versioning

Note: apparently Perl Best Practices got this wrong (in Modules chapter, 221. Use three-part version numbers; 222. Enforce your version requirements programmatically) and so is a dubious reference on CPAN module versioning.

    Well at least I got my version numbers right, apart from skipping x.y0 which I'm going to take up now.
