Subject: Don't require latest versions of core modules
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 422b
Please consider making an exclusion for core modules by checking against Module::CoreList. The rationale for this is that requiring a version of some core module which is part of a newer perl distribution is scary and produces nasty warnings. When someone uses this plugin, they almost certainly meant to bump the version numbers for non-core modules. If you're doubtful, a switch could be added to disable the check.
