Subject: dotfiles are returned, by default
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 497b
My production system sometimes experiences errors like this: Can't opendir(/usr/local/lib/perl5/MyApp/Foo/.~tmp~): Permission denied at /usr/local/lib/perl5/Module/ line 197. ...which is caused by code that is executing at the same time rsync is in the process of deploying new code. It would be preferred if Module::Find ignored dotfiles by default, to avoid this. '.' is not a valid character in a perl module name, so a dotfile in a lib directory can never represent a valid module.
Thank you for reporting this issue. I made it the standard behavior to not return dot files.
