Subject: adds a 'v' to the version number in the tar file name
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 476b was generated with ./Build dist and I think that the 'v' in the version number in the file name shouldn't be there. The version is declared as our $VERSION = '0.3.2'; in the .pm file, and the call to Module::Build->new contains the line dist_version_from => 'lib/Math/Expression/', At least I don't see why this should produce a 'v' anywhere. Cheers, Moritz

This change was by design to ensure that generated version numbers are consistent with best practices. It was debated and resolved over a year ago. Dotted-decimals should have a leading "v" and at least three components. This has been formalized in the CPAN Meta Spec version 2 and M::B is consistent with this standard when possible. You can set your version string manually with 'dist_version' and it will not be normalized. I'm closing this ticket as the behavior is not going to be changed. -- David
