Subject: YAML::Any hard to find/install? cpan client confused
I am very confused here, and wanted to let you know what I was experiencing (and was curious if you had received any other reports)... I tried installing Catalyst and noticed that one of it's tests failed and included YAML something in the output (sorry, I don't have that on my screen any more). So I went to make sure I had all of the YAML modules up to date... The `cpan` client doesn't seem to be able to find YAML::Any even though it is listed in the 02packages.details.txt.gz file. Weird. It happens to show the 0.73 release as the dist it's in... so I'm not sure if the PAUSE indexer doesn't record modules that used to have a VERSION and don't any more? Regardless of that I am not sure why can't find it. cpanminus does find the module in the module, but installs the 0.73 dist instead of the current 0.76 (since that's the one listed). Both metacpan and s.c.o. both show YAML-0.76 when searching for YAML::Any, which confuses me even more... So in the end I do have both YAML (0.76) and YAML::Any (undef) installed (as well as YAML::XS and YAML::Tiny)... and now the Catalyst test passes. /me shrugs

Turns out this may be a bug in CPAN::SQLite... that db only seems to index YAML, Test::YAML, and YAML::Mo.
