FAQ
Offer Kaye points out to me that the URL http://search.cpan.org/dist/Marpa/
takes him to a very ancient version of my Marpa module:
Marpa-0.010000. He expects, as I do, that it would take you to the
latest version or close to it. Marpa-0.010000 is many versions and
months out of date. The latest version is now http://search.cpan.org/~jkegl/Marpa-0.104000/.

My thought is that the target of http://search.cpan.org/dist/Marpa/
is decided by the CPAN infrastructure. Any ideas as to how I'd go
about resolving this issue?

Thanks, jeffrey kegler

    I *think* it's because version 0.010000 contains module Marpa::UrHTML
    which isn't in 0.104000. So, as Marpa-0.010000 contains the most recent
    version of Marpa::UrHTML, the distribution goes into the CPAN index.
    Marpa-0.104000 is *also* in the index because it contains the most
    recent version of Marpa.pm.

    You can see this in the 02packages file.

    Assuming I'm right, you can fix it by deleting Marpa-0.010000 from the
    CPAN (there's an interface for this on pause.cpan.org) and waiting a few
    days for the deletion to propagate out to everywhere.

    Seems plausible.

    In this case you can also

    - visit https://pause.perl.org/pause/authenquery?ACTION=reset_version

    - select Marpa::UrHTML

    - click "Forget"
