Subject: Auto-install Archive::Zip if the distro is a /\.zip$/ file (The CHORNY bug)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 373b
Some authors like CHORNY upload .zip archives to CPAN, on a fresh machine CPANPLUS will fail to install these distros because Archive::Zip isn't installed. I think if CPANPLUS encounters .zip files Archive::Zip should be automatically added to the list of prerequisites. And CHORNY: Can you please use .tar.(gz|bz2) like everyone else to avoid these sorts of issues?
