Subject: Module::CPANTS::Kwalitee::License doesn't look for LICENSE.txt
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 162b
CPAN has accepted LICENSE.txt as the license file for as long as I've known about it, but Module::CPANTS::Kwalitee::License does not look for it under that name.

Do you know what bit of code looks for that file? It would be helpful to use as a reference to make sure all the variants are covered, as well as documented elsewhere (e.g. any toolchain standards documents still to be written).

Thanks. Fixed in the master: https://github.com/cpants/Module-CPANTS-Analyse/commit/6018f9778c42576041fa46bea35d3a9e19cb3467

Thanks, but you may want to revert that. I just learned that metacpan is much more strict about which meta files it lists as compared to search.cpan.org. Apparently, it's been hiding distros' README.txt and LICENSE.txt all this time, whereas these were picked up by search.cpan.org. Specifically, I think metacpan only lists the following: AUTHORS Build.PL Changelog ChangeLog CHANGELOG Changes CHANGES CONTRIBUTING CONTRIBUTING.md CONTRIBUTING.pod Copying COPYRIGHT cpanfile CREDITS dist.ini FAQ INSTALL INSTALL.md INSTALL.pod LICENSE Makefile.PL MANIFEST META.json META.yml NEWS README README.md README.pod THANKS Todo ToDo TODO I'm going to put more research into what's actually being used by modules, then propose a fix for metacpan and one for Module::CPANTS::Kwalitee::License. - Eric On Mon, May 9, 2016 at 4:04 AM, Kenichi Ishigaki via RT < bug-Module-CPANTS-Analyse@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text

metacpan doesn't display pod files in the root now, because those files tend to get installed into the user's PERL5LIB.

Indeed (Example: https://metacpan.org/release/Geo-GeoNames) That list I got from metacpan's source must be for something else. On Mon, May 9, 2016 at 1:10 PM, Karen Etheridge via RT < bug-Module-CPANTS-Analyse@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text
