Subject: configure-requires support before 5.10.1: "Parse::Metayaml" is really Parse::CPAN::Meta!
Dear CPAN.pm maintainers, CPAN.pm added support for configure_requires dependencies. But it needs a YAML parser for that. In order to work out of the box in core perl (specifically the soonish-to-be-released 5.10.1), it needs a YAML/meta.yml parser in core. It's been decided that a simple Parse::CPAN::Meta is to be absorbed for that. However, CPAN.pm contains a typo: It says 'Parse::Metayaml' where it should be 'Parse::CPAN::Meta'. It'd be very important to have this fix in core before 5.10.1 or the configure-requires support (which may be important for a lot of build-tools like eventually) will be broken until the next perl release... Cheers, Steffen
Patched in my git repo and sent pull request to ANDK for incorporation into the main CPAN repo. (Thanks to Steffen for the patch.) -- David
