The source repo is in blead as RJBS said here:

While blead is upstream for the module itself, there is no META.yml in blead, and what tool is used to generate it when making the CPAN release is the choice of the CPAN maintainer, who most recently was RJBS. The most recent release, 3.62, says in its META.yml that it was generated by EUMM, so presumably the Makefile.PL in blead was used. But interestingly https://github.com/tsee/PathTools has a Build.PL that seems to exist solely for making releases, since it is not listed in MANIFEST. Hence, I don’t really know *what* is going on. I think the best way forward is to patch the Makefile.PL in blead, using the META_MERGE parameter.

And while we’re at it, include rt.perl.org as the bug tracker.

Any action on this? It would also be good to remove my name from the Cwd.pm POD as maintainer. I can submit a pull request but I'm not sure which repo it should go to.
