can I delete a bad PAUSE upload?

gideondsouza has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

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


Update

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

    Yes, I think you should delete those files. Since 0.02 is a replacement for 0.01, and no one else seems to be able to easily access 0.01 anyway, you might as well clean up the clutter.

    Everyone makes mistakes sometimes. :-)

    Yep, just delete them. They take about a week to fully disappear from the CPAN, but will probably be archived forever on the BackPAN.

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
      Done! :) Thanks so much for your reply guys.
