    A lot -- If you look at the page I linked, you still have a bunch of stuff hanging off PPI, Log::Dispatchouli, Config::MVP::Reader, and MooseX::*, plus many other random things. It shouldn't be hard for you to come up with an exact number.

    I have no idea. I'll try to find time tomorrow to answer your question. No criticism of Dist::Zilla was intended, my post was merely informational.

    Some modules do a lot, and I think it's right that they use CPAN to do the "lotness".

    I had to install some undeclared prereqs first:

    cpanp i Module::Metadata Perl::OSType

    Then,

    cpanp i Test::Most Moose LWP DateTime

    added another 53 modules, plus the 3 prereqs, for a total of 56. So, Dist::Zilla needs another another 76 modules.

      There are no undeclared prereqs, none
