Re: Why don't CPAN.pm and cpanminus update modules, even if they know about newer modules?

in reply to Why don't CPAN.pm and cpanminus update modules, even if they know about newer modules?

learned something new today from akoenig: usually there is a reason for a module not getting indexed, and the author gets an email with that reason.
But in case of HTML::Template 2.9 -> 2.10 it's just that 2.10 is a lower version than 2.9, unfortunately.

So whenever you are missing a module in the index, the author has probably gotten an email about that, but it doesn't hurt to create a bug report (emails get lost, bug reports don't =)
