Subject: MANIFEST with mixed line endings leads to a signature problem

This ticket has its root in a very old bug in Module::Signature. That bug has been fixed in MS-0.68 and this has an impact on your distro. The bug in Module::Signature was about handling files with Carriage Returns in them (RT #46339). Its behavior is now more robust. But the price for this fix is that it now is not anymore able to verify old signatures against files that mix LF and CRLF line endings. The MANIFEST file unfortunately has mixed line endings and is now rejected by 'cpansign -v' when it is based on Module::Signature 0.68. To fix the current undesirable situation it would suffice to re-release Image-Thumbnail and sign it with Module::Signature 0.68. Fixing the line endings would certainly be considered a bonus by some. HTH, Thanks && Regards
