Subject: New version 0.340 of Module::ExtractUse might report more uses
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 413b
Hi! I've just released a new version of Module::ExtractUse including work done as part of the CPAN Pull Request Challenge to report usage of modules via Module::Runtime and Class::Load. This might have some consequence on CPANTS / reported deps etc. Just a short heads-up, even though I don't think the changes will cause any real problems (they may uncover some missing dependecies, though..) Greetings, domm

They may cause new kwalitee failures if the kwalitee metric interprets uses of Module::Runtime and Class::Load as "should be in required deps", which isn't always correct -- generally these modules are being employed when deps are needed *conditionally*, meaning they might be more appropriate as 'recommends' or 'suggests' dependencies instead.

Unfortunately, there seem several issues in the newer versions of Module::ExtractUse (failing to list Module::Runtime itself, etc). I'll post issues/send pull requests when I finish sorting them out.
