Subject: Make add_to_manifest() a public API
Module::Build::Base has a private API _add_to_manifest() that can be used to add files generated at 'distmeta' time. This method would be useful for Module::Build subclass which generate files at distribution build time (on the author machine). In my case, I want to generate a file 'Changes.rss' created at 'distmeta'-time from 'Changes' for my distribution. This file is static and is bundled with the distribution, not built at install time. -- Olivier Mengué - http://o.mengue.free.fr/
Another good suggestion. I don't see why it shouldn't be public.
