Subject: META.yml and META.json licence fields get inconsistent data from the same source
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 261b
It seems that EU::MM is spitting out different data into META.yml and META.json for some fields, in particular for the licence. This was reported against one of my modules (see https://github.com/DrHyde/perl-modules-Data-Compare/issues/15) so I'm passing it on.

This is expected behavior. Meta 1.4 (yml) can't express dual-licenses, so it summarizes it to open source or not. Leon
