"Code will not suddenly develop bugs"

Yes, code can "suddenly" develop bugs, if something external changes, such as the environment or input data (remember Y2K?). Just because "it's been working for years" doesn't mean it can't break in the future, even without a code change.

    [stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
    [LanX]: what's frustrating me is that a distribution has lots of dupplicated info
    [stevieb]: LanX I don't know if it's dialog driven; I just use it in the simplest of terms (just run module-starter at the CLI, and the very last couple of lines are how I use it.
    [stevieb]: which dist are you speaking of regarding dups, LanX?
    [LanX]: readme version number and so on ...
    [stevieb]: with M::S, you can also add other tags, but defaults work... such as --license=perl --eumm
    [LanX]: I'm not a big fan of pure make, apparently the auto generated ones are so complicated to be able to work with all possible makes
    [stevieb]: I find the M::S makefiles it generates are quite straight forward, and I usually have to add a few things (github info etc). They're about 15 lines or so give or take.
    [Corion]: I don't think the EUMM-generated Makefile is that complicated ;)
