So I'm trying to install Pod::ProjectDocs and it requires Syntax::Highlight::Universal. P/PA/PALANT/Syntax-Highlight-Universal-0.4.tar.gz from CPAN fails to build on my machine for some reason, but I downloaded M/MI/MISHOO/Syntax-Highlight-Universal-0.5.tar.gz and it builds fine with a perl Makefile.PL && make && make test && make install.
Version 0.4 was added to cpan in 2005 and 0.5 in 2009.
So, question: Even though the newer version (by a different author?) has been in CPAN for a while, why isn't it showing up when I search for it? It's not being mirrored by CPAN::Mini either apparently because it's not in 02packages.details.txt, but who decides what goes in there?
