perlsource may have some clues

Thanks afoken ... that's what I needed to read.

I was being thrown by the fact that the dual-life module threads, located in the "dist" directory of the perl source, is currently at version 2.28 (2.27 in perl-5.36.0 source), yet CPAN stops at version 2.21 (from Jan 2018).
But it turns out this is totally allowable under the perlsource spec for files located in the "dist" directory ... though I'm going to have a serious rethink about the meaning of "dual-life".
If a "dual-life" module is going to remain at version 2.21 on CPAN forever more (either in order to remain backwards-compatible, or because no-one can be bothered updating the CPAN version), is it really "dual-life" ? What sort of a "dual" life is that ?
To quote InfiniteSilence: "Might want to ask the Perl Porters that question" ;-)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
