Re^2: What are the files in a CPAN distribution?
in thread What are the files in a CPAN distribution?
My MANIFEST.SKIP files also list files used by source code managment as well as temporary files. These temp files might be generated during testing, running examples, etc. Why hand out additional work to another author if/when (s)he takes over the distribution or wants to put a modified/fixed version into a local darkpan repo?
