in reply to CPAN Tests Failing [SOLVED]

I've tried to reproduce the issue locally, on multiple machines, but I always get a pass.
Please confirm that you tried installing this from CPAN yourself and what method you used.

I tried installing it, and I noticed some warnings:

cpan WWW::Shopify ... WARNING: the following files are missing in your kit: MYMETA.json MYMETA.yml Please inform the author.

When I click on a link from the MANIFEST for MYMETA.json, I get this error:

Not Found The requested URL /src/ADAMDH/WWW-Shopify-0.11/MYMETA.json was not fou +nd on this server.

I'm not saying that is the root of your problem, but that does seem strange.

    I don't know about the current state of art regarding module metadata, but I think the MYMETA.* files are not supposed to be redistributed at all. They seem to be generated whenever Makefile.PL is run and record the (then) current state of affairs.

    ... but still, when doing local tests by using make disttest, these warnings should appear and be eliminated.

    Indeed; this isn't related, but it's still a problem.

    MYMETA.(yml|json) should not be bundled with the distribution, and should not be listed in MANIFEST.

    q.v. What are the files in a CPAN distribution?

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
