Subject: "use 5.8.3" in Makefile.PL
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 406b
Hi, The Makefile.PL has "use 5.8.3", however some of us are unfortunately still stuck on Perl 5.8.0. I have installed JSON::Any using Perl 5.8.0 and it seems to run fine (I know of at least one other who has done so, as well). Is it possible to remove this dependancy? This would probably be helpful for the DBIx::Class project, since JSON::Any is the only required module that needs 5.8.3. Thanks, Sam.

Created commit ddb8a55: drop the dep down to 5.008 I've thought long and hard about this dep. On the one hand I have to draw a line somewhere on what I support 5.8.3 seemed to be the earliest non-broken 5.8.x series. However the fact is that I don't personally test on anything earlier than 5.8.8 (or anymore 5.10) so it really is still arbitrary what bugs might be affected. I've gone ahead and lowered the version number required to 5.8.0 as this will make your life easier but I reserve the right to increase it again if I have issues that I can't (easily) resolve. This is probably far more than you wanted to know but I needed to get my thoughts on the dependency out some too.
