Subject: ./Build distmeta doesn't create META.yml
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 575b
Trying to build a local distribution of a module I created with Module::Starter and ./Build dist complains about the lack of META.yml. When I unpack the tarfile and run perl Build.PL, I get ERROR: Missing required field 'dist_abstract' for metafile Could not get valid metadata. Error is: Invalid metadata structure. Could not create MYMETA files I've been doing this: perl Build.PL ./Build distcheck ./Build distmeta ./Build dist If I run perl Makefile.PL; make dist it wraps up a META.yml file in the tarball. (RT seems to be the only way to ask a question - thanks)
META.yml is now created by ./Build distmeta in version 0.4 thank you
