Hi, please consider making a new release, with the META files (META.json, META.yml) generated. Having these files makes it easier to detect dependencies, without having to run Perl code. If you are using MakeMaker (you have Makefile.PL), just do "make dist", and the META files should appear. If you are using Module::Build (you have Build.PL), just do "./Build dist", and the META files should appear. Then, add the META.json and META.yml to MANIFEST, and make a new release.

A new release is in the works. It will have the META files. Thanks for the suggestion.
