Subject: distribution doesn't publish source code repository information, and has at least two "live" repositories
A bit of exploration resulted in me finding this repository: http://git.shadowcat.co.uk/gitweb/gitweb.cgi?p=catagits/HTML-Zoom.git which has a commit by MSTROUT as recently as 2013-03-18, but it doesn't have any commits for the most recent CPAN release of this distribution at this time (0.009007). Some further searching and I came across this repository: https://github.com/purge/HTML-Zoom which is owned by the same person that MetaCPAN deems the current author of the distribution, and therefore obviously does have commits for v0.009007. It seems that not all of the people working on this distribution are aware of the correct location of its repository. It would be nice to see one explicitly referenced in META.yml or something so that anyone wanting to write patches knows where to pull from, etc., and then all of the other separate code bases merged into that one.
Yep, My bad. The catagits one is the official repo but for some reason I can't push to it at the moment. i'll sort that ASAP and update META.yml for the next release If you do a pull request against mine I will ensure it's merged though On Sun Apr 28 05:41:13 2013, LXP wrote:
