Subject: META doesn't parse correctly
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 233b
When installing via cpanm, the META.json does not parse correctly because there is a carriage return character in the abstract string. (the META.yml has the same problem). This means that the package is not indexed when using carton.

There are also problems when using CPAN.pm --- if you're unlucky and if CPAN.pm is configured to use YAML.pm for META.yml parsing, then an endless loop may happen. If pther YAML implementations are used then CPAN::Reporter complains: CPAN::Reporter: error parsing META.yml
