Ahh - I may have found part of my own enlightenment.
If I had read http://search.cpan.org/~dconway/Module-Starter-PBP-v0.0.3/lib/Module/Starter/PBP.pm, I'd have seen the advice to typeperl -MModule::Starter::PBP=setup
With the result that a directory of templates is created. I am free to tailor the templates, including setting up exactly the Licence and Copyright that I want.
When I configure t/perlcritic.t to enforce brutal severity, and run build test, I am told that 2 POD sections (SUBROUTINES/METHODS, and LICENSE AND COPYRIGHT) are still missing. So, almost but not quite perlcritic safe.
The former section may now be INTERFACE, and the latter is (Aussie/British-English spelling) LICENCE AND COPYRIGHT. Good -- but now I have to dig just a little deeper to discover how to tailor Test::Perl::Critic to permit these alternative section names.
I'd welcome guidance on the right path.
In reply to Re: Module::Starter (or ::PBP) and Module::Build -- how do I configure the License and Copyright?
