Subject: author should take array to match META.yml spec and Module::Build
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 336b
The META.yml spec supports multiple authors via an array: http://module-build.sourceforge.net/META-spec-blead.html#author Module::Build does as well. So in Metadata.pm, the handling of 'author' should be updated to take a single value or an array of authors. Other places in the code that rely on this data may need updated as well.

The author entry in META.yml is now a sequence (aka a list), but the author method does still only take one argument, effectively preventing you from setting more than one author in META.yml. So this bug is still relevant and can hopefully be fixed easily.
Hi. This will be fixed in the next release. Thanks.
Hi. 0.95 is out. If you still have the problem, reopen this. Thanks.
