"install Bio::SeqIO" installs CJFIELDS/BioPerl-1.6.922.tar.gz because in 1.6.923 Bio::SeqIO does not have a version. -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net

This was due to some changes in the CPAN indexer that have broken how versions are passed on to all the classes via Bio::Root::Version. This will likely not be fixed until we release v 1.7.

Is there a timeline for the 1.7 release? This issue was also discussed independently at https://github.com/andk/pause/issues/75, with excerpts from the indexing errors. Can you try forcing a re-index of CJFIELDS/BioPerl-1.006923.tar.gz on PAUSE to see if newer PAUSE code handles it better? I'm not sure what changed in PAUSE with regard to version parsing, but a re-index may help.

Another option to fix this pre-1.7 would be to use a META.yml or META.json-driven index on PAUSE by including a "provides" section that lists packages and there versions. This avoids the need to adjust versioning the code itself. Information on provides: https://metacpan.org/pod/CPAN::Meta::Spec#provides

1.6.924 also seems to have index problems: cpan[3]> m BioPerl Module id = BioPerl CPAN_USERID CJFIELDS (Christopher Fields <cjfields@bioperl.org>) CPAN_VERSION undef CPAN_FILE C/CJ/CJFIELDS/BioPerl-1.6.923.tar.gz UPLOAD_DATE 2013-12-18 INST_FILE (not installed) -> which is not the latest available BioPerl (JFIELDS/BioPerl-1.6.924.tar.gz)

Oops, this should read CJFIELDS/BioPerl-1.6.924.tar.gz

We're still seeing some odd issues with versioning, in particular with CPAN vs cpanm vs MetaCPAN reporting different versions. We'll see if we can sort out the problem with newer 1.7x RCs On Tue Jul 07 23:36:56 2015, SREZIC wrote: Show quoted text

Looking at the last release on search.cpan.org it seems to have indexed all modules except those not inheriting Bio::Root::Version. We'll see if the issue persists after the 1.7.0 release, if so I will add explicit numbers to the next point release. http://search.cpan.org/~cjfields/BioPerl-1.6.924/
