Subject: Add ^MYMETA to default skip list
At the Perl QA hackathons and subsequent discussions, there has been consensus among toolchain developers to standardize on a "MYMETA.yml" file generated during configuration to be the new standard way for toolchain modules to communicate configuration between toolchain components. (Replacing parsing Makefile for PREREQ_PM et al.) Current discussions on revising the CPAN META spec suggest that the new standard format will be JSON, e.g. MYMETA.json. These files should *never* be included with a distribution as they are supposed to represent the end-user's local configuration result. Therefore, any file matching qr/^MYMETA\./ should be skipped by default. This will skip current MYMETA.yml and any future suffix if the storage format changes. -- David
Thanks very much for the suggestion - I've added that to the github repository: http://github.com/rkobes/extutils-manifest and will release a CPAN version shortly.
