Subject: META.yml not updated
The last few releases haven't updated the META.yml. http://search.cpan.org/src/YVES/ExtUtils-Install-1.46/META.yml This results in the CPAN shell from realizing ExtUtils::Install was updated. The Makefile.PL is suppressing META.yml generation by setting NO_META. The copy sitting in the source directory is being copied to the distribution. Apparently both 1.44 and 1.45 were generated with MakeMaker. I would suggest removing NO_META, an updated, less detailed MakeMaker META.yml is better than an out of date one. I would also recommend only using Module::Build for releases.
This should be fixed with v1.47, which includes both your requested changes, removed the offending line from Makefile.PL and used Build.PL to create the dist. Hopefully it works out ok :-)
