Subject: Badly broken META.yml
You've set the version of YAML itself to 1.4, which is a bad idea since it freaks out parsers. The version of the YAML syntax is 1.0, the version of the meta.yml spec is 1.4. Change the 1.4 in the first line of META.yml to 1.0
Poor Merejn has heard the same complaint from myself. But in the end I apologized to him. After I re-read the YAML spec over and over again, I came to the conclusion that the META.yml is correct and YAML.pm parses it wrongly. I found nothing in the YAML spec that says when the first line is --- #YAML:1.1 that this thing after the hashmark is anything else than a comment. See also ticket 39528.

The #YAML:VERSION thing dates from version 0.9ish (if you get the meaning) of the specification, i.e. before it was fully normalised and cleaned up. Adam K 2008/10/22 Andreas Koenig via RT <bug-Text-CSV_XS@rt.cpan.org>:
