|Subject:||If manifested file is missed, `make dist` warns but continues|
If a file listed in MANIFEST is missed, `make dist` prints a warning but continues. Finally, the dist archive will be *successfully* created. How to reproduce: $ h2xs -AX --skip-exporter -n Assa $ cd Assa $ echo "Zoo" >> MANIFEST $ perl Makefile.PL $ make dist rm -rf Assa-0.01 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Manifest=manicopy,maniread" \ -e "manicopy(maniread(),'Assa-0.01', 'best');" mkdir Assa-0.01 Zoo not found at -e line 1. mkdir Assa-0.01/t mkdir Assa-0.01/lib Generating META.yml Generating META.json tar cvf Assa-0.01.tar Assa-0.01 Assa-0.01/ Assa-0.01/t/ Assa-0.01/t/Assa.t Assa-0.01/Changes Assa-0.01/README Assa-0.01/lib/ Assa-0.01/lib/Assa.pm Assa-0.01/META.yml Assa-0.01/META.json Assa-0.01/Makefile.PL Assa-0.01/MANIFEST rm -rf Assa-0.01 gzip --best Assa-0.01.tar Created Assa-0.01.tar.gz There a few problems: 1. "Zoo not found at -e line 1." does not look like a warning and not clear enough. It would be better to let user know that "Zoo" is a file listed in MANIFEST. Information about source location "at -e line 1." does not have any value for the user and should be eliminated. 2. Problem (lack of file listed in MANIFEST) is serious enough. Make should be stopped with error to prevent creating broken package.
