Subject: Put Build.PL support back
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 430b
I just read that Build.PL support was dropped. I liked the Build.PL support. Two reasons... 1) It was a way to use Module::Build and offer MakeMaker compatibility without losing advanced features in the Makefile.PL. 2) It allowed one to use Module::Build with Module::Install's interface, which people seem to like. The Build.PL support seemed really thin and simple, could it be brought back? DBIx::Class makes use of it.

The problem was it didn't work. MANY features in Module::Install simply didn't have Module::Build implementations and silently didn't work. It may not have seemed so from the outside, but it was utter junk. Adding Module::Install syntax to Module::Build is still a worthy goal, but I'm not sure it should be done inside the scope of M:I... I'm not beyond re-adding support for Module::Build, but we need to complete support on the backend FIRST, before I'd consider re-enabling it at the front-end.
