Subject: broken manpages due to incomplete POD
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
A bunch of modules contain incomplete boilerplate POD which lead to broken and useless manpages after running them through pod2man. Here's the list (of the manpages) Module::Install::Admin::Bundle.3pm \ Module::Install::Admin::Compiler.3pm \ Module::Install::Admin::Find.3pm \ Module::Install::Admin::Makefile.3pm \ Module::Install::Admin::Manifest.3pm \ Module::Install::Admin::Metadata.3pm \ Module::Install::Admin::ScanDeps.3pm \ Module::Install::Admin::WriteAll.3pm \ Module::Install::AutoInstall.3pm \ Module::Install::DSL.3pm \ Module::Install::Fetch.3pm \ Module::Install::Include.3pm \ Module::Install::Inline.3pm \ Module::Install::MakeMaker.3pm \ Module::Install::Metadata.3pm \ Module::Install::Run.3pm \ Module::Install::Scripts.3pm \ Module::Install::Win32.3pm \ Module::Install::WriteAll.3pm \ Please either remove the POD fragments or complete them. Additionally we have lib/Module/Install.pod (nice) and lib/Module/ (with incomplete POD), and pod2man creates a manpage from the .pm. Again, please remove the POD fragment from the .pm file. Cheers, gregor, Debian Perl Group

The breakage from 1.10 seems to be reverted in 1.12; thanks! The only one with a POD fragment left is ./lib/Module/Install/Admin/ (but that's nothing new; would still be nice to have it fixed). Cheers, gregor
