What goes in a /corpus folder of a cpan module

Nothing:) anything you want :)

Funny though that Test::Kwalitee::Extra seems to look for it, (although it doesn't fail if the folder is not found).

Funny, "corpus" doesn't occur anywhere inside that module

OTOH, corpus/corpus, corpus,

This directory contains a set of distributions used by testing. Since the distributions contain *.t files, it's easier to put them outside of ./t so that recursive test harnesses do not try running their dists.

So you have the tests convention of t/ and xt/ for extra/author tests,

and now , instead of using option,

one guy, created a corpus directory instead of having a body or nottest or notsharedir or junk or stuff or extraextradatafiles namedliketest-butshouldntberun-or-installed

I am struggling to understand what goes in there

chilax :) give up :)

Maybe it should be added to the aforementioned thread but I can't post to it myself as its under perl meditation section.

Nah, its a unicorn like ./meta/ in What are the files in a CPAN distribution? , its not a convention
