Subject: Module::Build::Base: Suggest support for GPL v3 (patch attached)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 526b
With the release of GPL version 3.0, the links on have been updated. I think the valid_licenses subroutine (or rather, the %licenses hash) in Module::Build::Base should change. I propose the attached patch against which: (1) Adds an explicit 'gpl2' license option with the correct link. (2) Adds a 'gpl3' option pointing to the new version at This change should not be controversial or break any existing code. Version 0.2807 of Module::Build.
