Good day, sir. Great module, but I've noticed something odd when trying out dist_surveyor (0.013.) After running it against my perl lib and site-perl lib dirs, I found that it had listed a module among the final results that I did not recognize and did not actually exist anywhere in my system: authors/id/T/TA/TAGOMORIS/Net-Hadoop-WebHDFS-0.1.tar.gz So I ran it once more with debug turned on, and found a lot of lines like the following in the STDERR output: ... TAGOMORIS/Net-Hadoop-WebHDFS-0.1 Test::Deep::Array 0 467: matches TAGOMORIS/Net-Hadoop-WebHDFS-0.1 Test::Deep::MM 0 836: matches TAGOMORIS/Net-Hadoop-WebHDFS-0.1 Test::Deep::HashKeysOnly 0 1471: matches TAGOMORIS/Net-Hadoop-WebHDFS-0.1 JSON 2.53 67811: matches ... (among lines such as: ... TAGOMORIS/Net-Hadoop-WebHDFS-0.1 URI::_idna 0 2038: not installed ... ) Looking at revealed that the 0.1 version of that dist also bundled a lot of ExtUtils::, Test::, etc modules with it (all marked as "UNAUTHORIZED") So it seems that whatever method dist_surveyor is using to figure out what module belongs to what dist is associating Test::Deep::* modules with Net-Hadoop-WebHDFS-0.1 (which is an old version, where as Net-Hadoop-WebHDFS-0.6 is the latest and no longer appears to bundle all those modules) which is wrong since those modules don't actually belong to Net-Hadoop-WebHDFS-0.1, hence the "UNAUTHORIZED" marking on it's page. Maybe dist_surveyor isn't' checking if a module actually belongs to that dist (I believe that there is an authorized flag that could be checked.)
