I use both in the same distributions. ShipIt, in my opinion, is best used for verifying your distribution and uploading it to CPAN. dzil is awesome for building distributions. That's my separation of logic, and I'm sure others will disagree, but it works like awesome for me.

    Thanks. I notice that ShipIt helps with updating version numbers and integrates with SVN or with Git, if desired.
    Something else that people might like is that ShipIt does not seem to have dependencies outside of core.

    What makes ShipIt better than Dist::Zilla for those things?

[Eily]: you could tie a variable into not having the same value each time, if you like to make people who try to debug your code facepalm
[Corion]: perl -wle 'package o; use overload q("") => sub {warn "str"; ""}, bool => sub{warn "bool"; 1}; package main; my $o={}; bless $o => o; print "Yay" if ($o && !length($o))'
[Corion]: But people writing such code should document the objects they construct and why it makes sense for an object to be invisible as string while being true in a boolean context
[hippo]: That's equal parts clever and horrendous.
[Eily]: the overload version wouldn't return true with "$x" && !length $x though, I guess
[hippo]: The more I look at this code, the more $x is a plain old scalar and the more this condition will never be true. I'm calling it a bug at this point.
[hippo]: Thanks for your input which has soothed my sanity (a little)
[Corion]: Eily: Sure - if you force both things into stringy things, then you break that magic. But that would also mean that you changed the expression, as now $x = 0.00 will be true instead of false as it were before
[Corion]: Ah no, at least in my feeble experiments that doesn't change the meaning
[Corion]: We sell sanity in small packages ;)
