With a fresh install of Dist::Zilla (either 2.101040 or installing from a dist built from the github HEAD), 'dzil new Test' fails with the following error: $ dzil new Test -v [DZ] reading configuration using Dist::Zilla::Config::Finder no viable configuration could be found at /opt/perl/perls/perl- 5.12.0/lib/site_perl/5.12.0/Config/MVP/Reader/ line 38 Config::MVP::Reader::Finder::_which_plugin('Dist::Zilla::Config::Finder=HASH(0x102020e80)', 'HASH(0x102020fb8)') called at /opt/perl/perls/perl- 5.12.0/lib/site_perl/5.12.0/Config/MVP/Reader/ line 47 Config::MVP::Reader::Finder::read_config('Dist::Zilla::Config::Finder=HASH(0x102020e80)', 'HASH(0x102020fb8)') called at /opt/perl/perls/perl- 5.12.0/lib/site_perl/5.12.0/Dist/ line 455 Dist::Zilla::_load_config('Dist::Zilla', 'HASH(0x102010058)') called at /opt/perl/perls/perl-5.12.0/lib/site_perl/5.12.0/Dist/ line 331 Dist::Zilla::from_config('Dist::Zilla', 'HASH(0x100dff660)') called at /opt/perl/perls/perl- 5.12.0/lib/site_perl/5.12.0/Dist/Zilla/ line 84 Dist::Zilla::App::zilla('Dist::Zilla::App=HASH(0x100bf7f80)') called at /opt/perl/perls/perl-5.12.0/lib/site_perl/5.12.0/Dist/Zilla/App/ line 13 Dist::Zilla::App::Command::zilla('Dist::Zilla::App::Command::new=HASH(0x100dcfde0)') called at /opt/perl/perls/perl-5.12.0/lib/site_perl/5.12.0/Dist/Zilla/App/ line 24 Dist::Zilla::App::Command::log('Dist::Zilla::App::Command::new=HASH(0x100dcfde0)', 'ARRAY(0x100df96b8)') called at /opt/perl/perls/perl- 5.12.0/lib/site_perl/5.12.0/Dist/Zilla/App/Command/ line 46 Dist::Zilla::App::Command::new::validate_args('Dist::Zilla::App::Command::new=HASH(0x100 dcfde0)', 'Getopt::Long::Descriptive::Opts::__OPT__::2=HASH(0x100dfa138)', 'ARRAY(0x1008b1a28)') called at /opt/perl/perls/perl- 5.12.0/lib/site_perl/5.12.0/App/ line 375 App::Cmd::execute_command('Dist::Zilla::App=HASH(0x100bf7f80)', 'Dist::Zilla::App::Command::new=HASH(0x100dcfde0)', 'Getopt::Long::Descriptive::Opts::__OPT__::2=HASH(0x100dfa138)', 'Test') called at /opt/perl/perls/perl-5.12.0/lib/site_perl/5.12.0/App/ line 267 App::Cmd::run('Dist::Zilla::App') called at /opt/perl/perls/current/bin/dzil line 9 Things that do not fix this problem: 1) having a '~/.dzil' file with the contents from the Dist::Zilla::App::Command::new 'CONFIGURATION' section 2) having a '~/.dzil/config.ini' file with the contents from the Dist::Zilla::App::Command::new 'CONFIGURATION' section 3) having an empty 'dist.ini' file in the current working directory Things that sort of work around this problem: Having a mostly-complete 'dist.ini' file in the current working directory and running 'dzil new .' *does* regenerate the dist.ini file, using the values from ~/.dzil/config.ini (if that exists)
dzil new has been entirely replaced It needs documentation, but works usefully now. -- rjbs
