Subject: License grants wrong copyright
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 566b
The LICENSE file in 0.14 has (several) copyright lines as: This software is copyright (c) 2018 by Christian Hansen. I'm assuming this is a copy/paste error as it's the same in your other recent releases. Aside from the copyright holder, the year should be the earliest year to which you claim copyright to the name/code, which for some dists should be older than 2018. You can use App::Software::License to easily generate a correct LICENSE file using something like: software-license --holder 'Felipe Gaspar' --year 2016 --license Perl_5 --type license > LICENSE

You can also use --type notice to generate a snippet appropriate for inclusion in the POD. Sorry for the typo in your name :)

The latest release uses a generic GPL/Perl LICENSE file. I believe this resolves the issue; please confirm. Thank you!
