in reply to, metacpan and PAUSE all broken in different ways?

There has recently been a change in PAUSE to require permissions on distribution names as well as the packages inside them. You've uploaded your dists to subdirectories of your author dir. I'm guessing that there is a bug in PAUSE's handling of this case. If you uploaded the files to the root of your author dir, things would likely work correctly.

    Thanks for that suggestion. I have tried uploading to the root. I still got an email from the "PAUSE namespace indexer" though:
    This distribution name can only be used by users with permission for the package Attribute::Boolean, which you do not have.
    Let's see if it ends up in 02packages.details.txt though.

      Perhaps you need permission to create a sub name space in the parent name space. In this case, maybe you need to contact the maintainer of Attribute for consent, then cite that consent in an application to register Attribute::Boolean.

      I don't know. Just a thought.

      (I have applied to register a name space within a name space maintained by someone else. No response so far, but when I applied for a PAUSE/CPAN ID, the page said to allow 3 weeks for approval. I suspect the same applies when registering a name space. (when I peek for the name space I want to register, it says no record found))

      Nope. Exactly the same. Not in 02packages.details.txt.

      Any other suggestions or ideas?


        At least for Attribute::Boolean (1.06), things look "normal" to me now, while a previous CPAN search (for 1.05) did not find the results. Mustache::Simple seems also to work.

        I haven't tried installing either via cpan or cpanm, so the lack of inclusion on 02packages.details.txt might still break things.

        Sounds likely to be a bug. The "About PAUSE" link says that the source code for PAUSE can be found at

        So you can dive into the source code and try to identify the source of the bug. Or you can wait for the "modules" list to respond.
