( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Sheesh, no one has ever said "run out and convert all your existing modules, especially the ones that have heavily customized Makefile.PL files".

No? You mean all those mails ive seen saying EU::MM shouldnt be modified except for maintenance and that any new development efforts should occur in M::B, and that all those posts ive seen saying EU::MM and CPAN will be replaced by M::B and CPANPLUS by 5.10 dont count?

It seems to me that lots of people have been intimating that M::B should replace EU::MM Real Soon Now™ so when 5.10 comes out presumably EU::MM will be deprecated, and by 5.12 itll be removed. So by that time ill have to support both people who wont or cant use M::B and those who dont have EU::MM.

So as long as the intention is to ultimately replace EU::MM with M::B then I am essentially forced to use it. And given the issues raised, the problems of backward compat etc, im afraid that im not real confident in the Brave New world that the M::B folks seem to want to bring to me.

Really, save your time here. Go talk to Ken. Tell him that the Build.pl _sucks_ and that a lot of people hate it and that its very likely that policy of breaking CPAN is having a backlash against the whole effort. Talk some sense into the M::B crew and I promise youll see a lot of folks who have negative feelings about it turn in to its biggest champions.
