I wonder who writes the descriptions for the above?
They seem a bit random. Some are obvious and don't really
need a description (i.e. Font-TTF) while others (i.e. Parse-YALALR) are
practically begging for a description. Would other monks
be interested in full descriptions for all the new modules?
For the record, the example I gave says this in it's
Yet Another LALR(1) parser generator. Really intended for use as a backend
for Parse::Vipar, a visual parser debugger. Yes, I know the name sucks.
I strongly suspect that those descriptions are taken
from the modules list. That would explain why many are
missing and all are quite short (the modules list doesn't
have much space for description).
MakeMaker knows how to grab module descriptions from
the pod documentation (see the ABSTRACT_FROM option)
which would probably find descriptions for a lot of
modules that don't have one above. I don't know where
this features would need to be used for descriptions to
