Subject: "encoding" is still indexed by PAUSE
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 542b
"encoding" is still in the PAUSE index. Consequently, when my perl upgrade script tries to update every dual-life module, this happens: --> Working on encoding Fetching http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/D/DA/DANKOGAI/Encode-2.48.tar.gz -> OK Unpacking Encode-2.48.tar.gz Entering Encode-2.48 ...and then tests fail. The solution is to just delete Encode-2.48 from PAUSE here: https://pause.perl.org/pause/authenquery?ACTION=delete_files (It would probably be a good idea to delete most of the older releases, to save space on the mirrors.)

* encoding.pm is still required for old perls and the latest Encode still supports perl down to 5.8. * I wonder why your cpan (or cpanm or cpanp) tries to install 2.48. It ought to be 2.78, the latest version. Dan the Maintainer Thereof On Wed Jan 20 20:15:59 2016, ETHER wrote: Show quoted text

It turns out that this was an issue with the metacpan indexer. See: https://github.com/miyagawa/cpanminus/issues/501 https://github.com/metacpan/metacpan-api/issues/483 'encoding' is properly indexed in PAUSE against the latest distribution: grep encoding 02packages.details.txt encoding 2.18 D/DA/DANKOGAI/Encode-2.86.tar.gz ...so there is nothing wrong with the Encode distribution itself. Closing; sorry for the bother!
