Subject: Doc implies copyright_holder is optional
Download (untitled) / with headers

Hi Richard Signs, The Dist::Zilla::Tutorial doc implies that copyright_holder is optional: name ā€ (required) the name of the dist being built ... copyright_holder ā€ the name of the entity holding copyright on the dist dzil build blows up with a "copyright_holder is required" error if you don't provide it. Please consider making the copyright_holder default to author; I figure that's not only a sane default, but a popular one as well. Thanks, Shawn

I am wary of defaulting in any copyright stuff, as bogus data there is a bitch. Instead, authors now defaults to [copyright_holder] -- rjbs
