Subject: Windows newlines confuse old versions of Module::Signature
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 600b
Module::Signature 0.55 (and possibly up to 0.67) can be confused by Windows newlines on Unix and produce the wrong signature. ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.62.tar.gz tickles the bug in it's bundled copy of Parse::CPAN::Meta. Trouble is, Module::Signature 0.67 requires ExtUtils::MakeMaker 6.42. Fixing the bug that causes the false signature makes a dependency loop. This can be resolved manually, but it kills automation. Right now MakeMaker is converting the newlines in its bundled copy of Parse::CPAN::Meta to avoid the loop. It would be very nice if the upstream module used Unix newlines. Thanks!
Fixed and released to CPAN
