Subject: Change included test modules to a Build_Requires
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 733b
Hi there: Your module uses a bunch of test modules (among other things) which are included in inc/. It adds a bit of unnecessary bulk to your package, since some of the included modules are now in Perl's core module distribution. Moreover, it means you won't get the relevant bug fixes for all of those modules. If your intent is just to use those modules for the purpose of testing and not for your module to function (which is what I gather since the modules are in inc/ and not lib/) then you should ideally use the build_requires relationship (provided by newer build systems like Module::Install and Module::Build). That way the modules won't be installed (unless the user explicitly wants to install them) Cheers, Jonathan
