|go ahead... be a heretic
Is there a way to avoid building twice when testing and then releasing? When releasing a distribution, I do dzil test first, as I assume most authors would do. Then a dzil release afterwards, if the previous step is a success. dzil release does another build; there's dzil test --keep to keep the test build in .build/, but I don't see how dzil release can be instructed to just use it instead of rebuilding.
