Last month I sent this message to the perl5-porters mailing list. I got
no replies. Does anyone on this list have thoughts on this?
Two recently filed RT tickets ...
... led me to look for the source code for ExtUtils::Installed and
ExtUtils::Packlist. They're part of the ExtUtils-Install distribution
which is distributed with core.
In the core distro, ExtUtils-Install is found under 'cpan/', which
suggests that it is *primarily* maintained on CPAN by one or more
maintainers, and not maintained by P5P.
However, when I go to
http://search.cpan.org/~bingos/ExtUtils-Install-1.68/, I see that this
distro's bug tracker is listed as http://rt.perl.org/rt3/ and its
repository is listed as http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/. In other
words, it's maintained in core not on cpan/.
If so, then shouldn't ExtUtils-Install be under 'dist/' rather than
'cpan/' in the core distribution?
dist: "This directory is for dual-life modules where the blead source is
I'd like to clarify this before embarking on work on either of the two
RTs cited above.
Thank you very much.
