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

Forgive me dear monks, I made quite a blunder last night.

I uploaded a module, (with an underscore for the purpose of CPAN testers testing it). It's a API wrapper for stack exchange. There is already an old module wrapping an old version of the api.

Unfortunately I didn't strike me that I put mine with the same name and only changed the internal modules with a V2 (like Net::GitHub). Both mine and the older module are named Net::StackExchange

I'm really sorry about this, it's a pretty daft mistake and I want to rectify it quickly and correctly.

I found Module::Rename, will it allow me to rename my module safely and thoroughly? My module is named Net-StackExchange and the directory structure looks like this:

├── Changes
├── Makefile.PL
├── ignore.txt
├── lib
│   └── Net
│       ├── StackExchange
│       │   ├── V2
│       │   │   └──
│       │   │   └──
│       │   │   └──
│       │   │   └── ....
│       │   │   └── ....
│       │   └──
│       └──
└── t
    ├── 00-load.t
    ├── boilerplate.t
    ├── manifest.t
    ├── pod-coverage.t
    └── pod.t


  1. Will module rename suffice, where else do I need to change files in Makefile.PL?
  2. I was thinking of just renaming to Net::StackExchange2 Not sure how nice this is?

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
