Subject: inc/.author and revision control systems
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 280b
The inc/.author mechanism does not play well with revision control systems like .svn or CVS. Having the *whole* tree replaced when running Makefile.PL means that the working copy is left into an inconsistent state, because all the .svn and CVS files/directories are also removed.

The entire inc directory is considered to be transient and should NEVER be added to your repository. Adam K On 17/10/2007, Slaven_Rezic via RT <bug-Module-Install@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text

This would make an easy installation using the magic command "cpan ." (which would resolve dependencies, build, test & install) more difficult. Regards, Slaven Show quoted text

Well, it seems to happen every now and then. I just stumbled over http://svn.openfoundry.org/par/PAR-Packer/trunk/inc In fact, it seems that you're one of the owners of this project! :-) Regards, Slaven Show quoted text
