( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

So I made my first PAUSE upload yesterday.

Unfortunately like an idiot I forgot the make dist and went and tar'd the thing myself :'( CPAN complained :

The distribution contains a blib/ directory and is therefore not being indexed. Hint: try 'make dist'.

Then to my dismay I learned CPAN will never take that same name again. So I made a version 0.02 and released it (all properly with a make dist) and all went well.

My module is here : Dancer::Plugin::Auth::Github. There is a version 0.01.

On pause I have a Delete files option, should I delete these files:

  1. Dancer-Plugin-Auth-Github-0.01.readme
  2. Dancer-Plugin-Auth-Github-0.01.tar.gz


For anyone else who finds this and is a newbie like me:

You might usually do this to test whether your module make's ok. But then you have to do make dist in the end to build a tar that you can send to pause. Essentially do:

perl Makefile.PL make make manifest make disttest make dist <<<<-Creates tarball
