Subject: current version 1.8.1 not seen as newer by cpanplus
current psh version is 1.8.1
previous version is 1.8, which is understood as 1.800 by cpanplus

since 1.800 > 1.8.1, cpanplus wants to downgrade to 1.8

to fix this, you have to issue a version 1.9, or 1.800.1... or 2.x
in any case, don't change your versioning scheme (from x.yz to x.y.z) without bumping major version.

note: removing previous tarball for psh 1.8 might remove the problem, since in that case they would not be present in the index. but it's not certain.

FWIW, removing 1.8 has a drawback. All users who have 1.8 installed would never recognize 1.8.1 as newer, no matter that the PAUSE indexer would start to propagate in in the index. Because they all go by the rules of version numbering in perl. BTW, the indexer would only start recognizing 1.8.1 if a reindex command were issued.
