in reply to What are the files in a CPAN distribution?

Since this is intended for newbs like me, you might want to point out that when one uses the MetaCPAN search function, the (first, main, most important-looking) link provided is to the "module" page, not the "release" page. The module page doesn't show most of the files you say MetaCPAN shows, which left me scratching my head for a while. Finally I spotted the link to the release page. That made it easier to understand this post, and to use existing distributions as helpful examples of how things are done.
