Subject: Document how to exclude files from CPAN indexes
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 578b
The CPAN::Meta::Spec allows the distribution author to exclude some files/directories/modules from CPAN indexing. This feature is not currently documented in EUMM and is hard to discover. Rationale: some of the pollution we see when looking for modules on search.cpan.org comes from POD indexed but not useful for a human or for the user of a module (internal documentation for maintainers for example). An improvement of EU::MM documentation of CPAN::Meta::Spec could help authors to fix this. -- Olivier Mengué - http://search.cpan.org/~dolmen/ http://github.com/dolmen/
