Subject: Default MANIFEST.SKIP too aggressive about exclusions
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 320b
The default MANIFEST.SKIP includes rules like these: # Avoid version control files. \bRCS\b \bCVS\b \bSCCS\b This erroneously matches input like: lib/Library/CVS.pm lib/Library/RCS.pm lib/Library/SCCS.pm Those systems will never produce CVS.pm files, so just checking for \b is an error.

Since ExtUtils-Manifest is now primarily maintained by Perl 5 Porters, I have opened a ticket for this issue there: https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=122416 This rt.cpan.org ticket is now closable. Thank you very much. Jim Keenan

But since is has been decided that the Perl Toolchain Gang maintains ExtUtils::MakeMaker, the issue is in its right place here.

Anyway, on the rt.perl.org ticket it was suggested this file pattern:
