in thread What are the files in a CPAN distribution?

I do keep modules in public Git repos, and in the module's POD point to that repo. Nevertheless, when someone looks for a distribution, they look to CPAN, and I try to provide the complete dist there. Anyway, the good thing about Perl is that TIMTOWTDI. :)

    The module POD is not the only place where your repo must be linked. The most important place is the distribution metadata: the resources section of META.{yaml,json}

    This is important because the metadata can be processed by programs while the POD is only for humans.
