Subject: EU::Install will happily copy packlist from blib, mark it read-only, then explode when making its own packlist
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 475b
This is not a very likely to happen situation, since packlists have nothing to do in blib, but it occurred with Inline::C due to a rather complex and buggy interaction between it and Inline::MakeMaker. Details are on github ( ) and patches are in the pipeline, so it's not urgent. Nevertheless i think it deserves some thinking about whether EU::Install should die when asked to copy a packlist file.
