Subject: New "bugtracker" entry

I propose a new entry "bugtracker" for the Module::Build->new argument list and the generated META.yml file. This would contain a URL where bugreports should sent to (http or mailto). If the value is unspecified, this would mean that the bugreport should go to a canonical place (e.g. With this information could use the correct URL for the "Report bugs" link. And a small nit I found in the README file: META.yaml is mentioned, but the file is actually spelled META.yml. Regards, Slaven

Graham Barr proposed a more general solution to this problem, which I'll probably implement. It will look something like this: urls: homepage: mail_archive: repository: bugs: The idea is that we can use a certain set of predefined lower-case entries, and users can add their own upper-case entries if they want. So we need to standardize on a set of lower-case names. -Ken
