Subject: Module::Metadata (we need version 1.000002)
I was asked by a user last week to install Moose, which entailed building 40+ dependencies. Among them was Module::Build. The Moose build asserted: Module::Metadata (we need version 1.000002) All other dependencies were indicated as a minimum version, not an exact version -- in this case, an old one. The current version of Module::Metadata is 1.000009. Does Module::Build 0.40 really require exactly this version of Module::Metadata, or should it be corrected to work with 1.000002 or anything newer?

I don't think Module::Build declares anywhere that it needs exactly that version (it works fine for me with Module::Metadata 1.000004). Can you provide the whole build log? This sounds like something else is going on. Leon

Module::Metadata (we need version 1.000002) -- I don't see an obvious build log in my working directory -- can you be more explicit? I do see that _build/prereqs includes 'requires' => { 'Module::Metadata' => '1.000002', yet when I installed 1.000009 and re-ran Makefile.pl the error above remained. It disappeared when I built and installed 1.000002
