Subject: Anomalies in outdated modules list
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 776b
After doing a scan for outdated modules (r) I noticed a few oddities. B 1.09_01 1.17 RGARCIA/perl-5.10.0.tar.gz As this is a perl module, should it be in the list? ExtUtils::Command::MM 6.43_01 6.44 MSCHWERN/ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.44.tar.gz That's a funny way to show ExtUtils::MakeMaker being out of date. PAR::Filter 0.02 0.03 SMUELLER/PAR-Packer-0.978.tar.gz Similar issue here, PAR::Packer is 0.970. I realize it's probably just using the first out of date module in the dist. Perhaps it can take a guess at the module to report based on the distribution name? Graphics::ColorObject 0.5.0 0.5 AIZVORSKI/Graphics-ColorObject-0.5.0.tar.gz The CPAN version is also 0.5.0, not 0.5.

Ok, I'll bite... * It got PAR::Packer right, good. (I already updated MakeMaker) * Still reporting Graphics::ColorObject as 0.5 instead of 0.5.0. * All the non-distribution-head modules are now at the bottom, which is an improvement. * B is still in the list, but it's at the bottom. -- Stabbing you in the face for your own good.

At least one improvement. Show quoted text

Indexer bug from olde. This needed only a re-index. Show quoted text

Makes two. Thanks! Show quoted text

I think it belongs there. Users should have a chance to know that there is a newer B even if they can only get it by upgrading perl. -- andreas
