Subject: Add Build.PL to MANIFEST.SKIP
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 425b
There is a circular dependency: PathTools requires ExtUtils-CBuilder and ExtUtils-CBuilder requires PathTools. I think we need PathTools to be Makefile.PL only (which eliminates the need for ExtUtils-CBuilder) so we can bootstrap other parts of the toolchain. Build.PL could exist in the repository for author use, but should not be released to CPAN and any Module::Build related dependencies should be removed. -- David
Expect PathTools 3.31 with this change on CPAN soon. --Steffen
