Re: Re-uploading the previous non-trial version of a distribution to CPAN

in reply to Re-uploading the previous non-trial version of a distribution to CPAN

Re-uploading the same version would be a bad idea due to there being multiple instances of a supposedly identical distribution (potentially) out in the wild, which is why even for small documentation changes and the like, you are asked to uprev your module. (2.3633 or higher, in your case).

See https://perldoc.perl.org/perlmodstyle.html#Version-numbering:

Never release anything (even a one-word documentation patch) without incrementing the number. Even a one-word documentation patch should result in a change in version at the sub-minor level.

In PAUSE, under the Utils menu, I came across a "Recent Version" option which looks like it'll do what I want

Do you mean "Reset Version"? I'm not sure how that would help you.

    I did mean "Reset Version", my bad. I'll edit my OP.

    The premise there is that it will reset the version of the current release version of the software to undef. It allows you supposedly to be able to re-upload the same version again. In my case, I don't think there will be any issues, as the version I want to upload is still the current release, because I've only uploaded a trial version (which the indexer doesn't see) since then.

    I'm just running my CI against it now on several fresh new Perl instances. When I'm confident, I'm going to go for it and hope for the best. Worst case scenario, I'll just bump version numbers across the board.

    Still scratching my head as to how I missed such a huge (tiny) thing in the first place :)
