FAQ
Chris,

I see from http://search.cpan.org/dist/ExtUtils-Manifest/ that you are
the most recent releasor of ExtUtils-Manifest.

I have reviewed all remaining New or Open tickets for this distro at
https://rt.cpan.org//Dist/Display.html?Queue=ExtUtils-Manifest. Those
that, IMHO, warrant action have been transferred to rt.perl.org (since
P5P is now, FBOW, the primary maintainer of this distro). Some don't
warrant further action.

In either case, in each ticket I've indicated that the rt.cpan.org
ticket is closable. Could you review these 7 tickets and then close them?

Thank you very much.
Jim Keenan

    I fear that moving the tickets into the main perl5 queue will lead to
    lessened visibilty, except to the core porters who are usually occupied
    with matters in core rather than supporting modules.

    I would be happy to create github issues for them for tracking. Is there an
    easy way of searching for these tickets in the perl5 queue?

    Well, at https://rt.cpan.org//Dist/Display.html?Queue=ExtUtils-Manifest
    the "preferred bug tracker" link took me to rt.perl.org, which is why I
    transferred the tickets there.

    Well, the tickets were all old and unresponded-to for years, so they're
    not going to get any *less* visibility at rt.perl.org.

    They've all been created in the last few weeks, so they're near the top
    of either the New or Open queues when searched in reverse order of Last
    Updated. You can't miss 'em.

    Or easier still: http://tinyurl.com/qb63sn9

    If the Toolchain Gang has a consensus answer to the questions I pose in
    those tickets, then you can probably resolve the tickets without having
    to open a ticket on github.

    Thank you very much.

    Sorry, I think that was a link to rt.cpan.org. Here are the rt.perl.org
    tickets and my action recommendations for each.

    https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=122415
    whole name quoted filename
    Review the patch I submitted:
    https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Attachment/1302699/690549/122415-0001-Have-maniread-properly-handle-whole-name-quoted-file.patch

    https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=122416
    MANIFEST.SKIP exclusions
    Note that OP has responded. Maintainer should make a decision as to
    whether change is desired and work it out with OP.

    https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=122421
    aborting make manifest
    Maintainer (Toolchain Gang, I guess) should make a decision as to
    whether change is desired

    https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=122417
    print STDERR vs warn
    Maintainer should make a decision as to whether change is desired. Patch
    will be simple.

    https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=122420
    maniread on VMS
    Make friends with Craig Berry :-)

    Thank you very much.

    I should have added this one:

    PERL_MM_MANIFEST_VERBOSE

    It has been resolved.
