Subject: Newline in middle of abstract appears to prompt a warning about abstract
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 526b
If you look at this report: http://cpants.cpanauthors.org/release/DUNCAND/Locale-KeyedText-2.1.0 It's saying: Provide a short description in the NAME section of the pod (after the module name followed by a hyphen) at least for the main module of this distribution The main module does have an abstract, but the pod looks like this: =head1 NAME Locale::KeyedText - Refer to user messages in programs by keys That's valid pod, but maybe there's a regex somewhere not coping with the newline?

It's not a problem in a regexp but its parsing logic that uses <$fh> (if it's a problem :) See the following, from which this module stole the logic: https://metacpan.org/source/BINGOS/ExtUtils-MakeMaker-7.22/lib/ExtUtils/MM_Unix.pm#L2816-2825 https://metacpan.org/source/LEONT/Module-Build-0.4218/lib/Module/Build/PodParser.pm#L27-30 https://metacpan.org/source/LEONT/Module-Build-0.4218/lib/Module/Build/API.pod#L277-279 (API doc for the above) I'm happy to fix this module when they also get abstract from multiple lines in a =head1 NAME, but for now, I'd rather suggest to fix the pod you mentioned, because it looks like it also confuses metacpan (see https://metacpan.org/release/DUNCAND/Locale-KeyedText-2.1.0 ; there's no abstract for Locale::KeyedText). BTW, it may be nice to improve the explanation of the metric, saying this is useful for ABSTRACT_FROM (EUMM) (and the likes) to work correctly.
