Dist::Zilla would seem to be the tool for this. But Dist::Zilla (or dzil) when I run it to build yet another module in this ongoing project, only ever gives me an a dist.ini file and a lib/ directory. I see that there are "bundles" that other CPAN contributors use, but I do I need to download all of them?
Extutils::MakeMaker and Module::Build are both core modules, so don't need to be downloaded. On the other those require you to do much more manual work than if you used dzil.
I suppose I am going to need to put all of this mess in a CVS of some kind, and it looks like Git is the method of choice. Again, I've gone looking for information on this, and nothing seems to click.
Yes, git is a good choice. It has a relatively high learning cost at the beginning, but it is well worth it. There is lots of good material about learning git on the internet, but it still needs while to make "click" in your head.
