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months out of date.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?
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.
