/opt/local/share/MANIFEST.SKIP ?

perl5ever has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I just installed Module::Package-0.30, and when I use it in one of my dists I find that it is trying to read /opt/local/share/MANIFEST.SKIP as the template MANIFEST.SKIP file, and I don't have that file.

Where should I get a copy of this file from?

And who is responsible for installing that file, me or some other module?

    Module::Manifest::Skip should have been installed with Module::Package.

    From the documentation for Module::Manifest::Skip :

    "CPAN module authors use a MANIFEST.SKIP file to exclude certain well known files from getting put into a generated MANIFEST file, which would cause them to go into the final distribution package."

    "Module::Manifest::Skip can create or update a MANIFEST.SKIP file for you...."

    "This module ships with a share file called share/MANIFEST.SKIP. This is the basis for all new MANIFEST.SKIP files."

    I've never packaged a Module before, but hopefully this should set you on the right track.
    The Module's CPAN page has a dependency listing and contact info.

    You should already have the default file, it comes with perl, it comes with http://search.cpan.org/dist/ExtUtils-MakeMaker, if its missing, complain to your vendor -- I don't know why vendors consistently think they know which files are safe to remove, but they're wrong way too often
