Subject: [PATCH] Module::Install::Bundle improvements
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1012b
Hi, Please find attached a patched I made from revision 15101 of the development repository at This patch prevents inc/BUNDLES to be deleted everytime "perl Makefile.PL" is called. This allows authors to more easily maintain their set of bundled distributions: they can add custom distributions not on CPAN, distributions they have patched or specific versions of distributions without having Module::Install::Bundle delete that work. I reworked the output so that it is clearer and more concise. The output contains additional warnings to inform authors: that there is a newer version of a bundled distribution on CPAN, that some bundled distributions are not needed anymore, ... Also, I implemented code that checks that the bundled distributions match the minimum version required by the author. Please consider merging this patch as the changes it implements make it more convenient to bundle distributions using Module::Install::Bundle. Thanks, Florent

I just updated the patch in an attempt to make authors aware that Build.PL -based distributions are not supported. I think this is an unfortunate caveat. Exactly what would be needed to add compatibility with Build.PL modules?? Cheers, Florent
