The heuristic to extract AUTHOR from POD is incorrect for the Module::Build distribution itself. "Development questions, bug reports, and patches should be sent to the Module-Build mailing list at" is not an author of Module::Build. Here is the POD in M::B ---- =head1 AUTHOR Ken Williams <kwilliams@cpan.org> Development questions, bug reports, and patches should be sent to the Module-Build mailing list at <module-build@perl.org>. Bug reports are also welcome at <http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Module-Build>. The latest development version is available from the Subversion repository at <https://svn.perl.org/modules/Module-Build/trunk/> =head1 COPYRIGHT ---- What we get in META.yml ---- author: - 'Ken Williams <kwilliams@cpan.org>' - "Development questions, bug reports, and patches should be sent to the\nModule-Build mailing list at <module-build@perl.org>." ----

This isn't actually prohibited by the META spec, and since it indicates a contact point, it's actually a reasonable piece of information to include. The current spec revision process will probably clarify the intent of the author field. After that is finished, that's probably the right time to address the heuristics.
