O masters of distribution fu:
I have a module (Data::Random) that is using Module::Install. (Yes, yes, I really should upgrade it to Dist::Zilla, but I don't have time right now. I will soon, honest!)
In the meantime, I've tried to get MI to generate a META.json file. I can do this by using Module::Install::JSONMETA. (And, yes, I know that the module is deprecated because it claims it is--or soon will be--no longer necessary, but I can't seem to get the META.json file any other way.) So all that works fine, except that, apparently, something in there is requiring YAML::Tiny during installation. I'm not sure why that is. Seems to me like that should be required on my (author's) side, not on the client (installer's) side.
But, anywho, now I have a couple of open RT tickets about how it won't install if there's no YAML::Tiny on the client side, and the solution seems to be just to get YT jammed into the inc/ dir that gets bundled up with my distro. But I can't figure out how to do that.
Anybody know what I need to do here? That is, either how I can get YAML::Tiny installed into inc/, or, failing that, how I can get MI to stop requiring YT during installation, or, failing that, how I can get MI to generate a META.json without using MI::JSONMETA. TIA!
