Subject: empty directories are excluded during "make dist"
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 175b
Empty directories are not packaged in the tar.gz when running "make dist". I ran into this because Test::Dependencies runs itself against an empty directory during its tests.

Probably relatedly, "make manifest" does not add empty directories to the MANIFEST file. On Thu Jul 20 17:33:12 2006, ZEV wrote: Show quoted text

These are not bugs in Module::Install. If you still think these are issues to be solved (though I doubt), please report them to ExtUtils::MakeMaker/ExtUtils::Manifest trackers. FYI, you can put a dummy file like ".exists" into a directory you want to add to your dist. Thanks. On 2006-7-20 Thu 17:37:22, ZEV wrote: Show quoted text
