Hi, At the moment, it seems like Module::Install does not report which version of the GPL license is used for a Perl script or module, even if this is specified explicitly in its POD. Example: =head1 COPYRIGHT Copyright 2009,2010,2011 Florent ANGLY <> Grinder is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

See the GNU General Public License for more details. You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with Grinder. If not, see <>. The version reported in META.yml should then be 'gpl3' but it is only 'gpl'. The example given above is the exact phrasing recommended by the FSF ( Thus I suggest that Module::Install returns 'gpl3' at least for this phrasing. Cheers, Florent
