and maintainer of:
I got an answer from the author of Module::Info (Mattia Barbon) today. And as I anticipated he is probably going to reject my patches.
It is only the second time I send a patch to somebody and apparently I had the proces of using diff upside down
So just for the fun of it I have recreated the pathes (following the advice of Mattia) so I at least could get the hang of using diff properly.
I argued why the patches should be applied, but at the same time I understand Mattia and I respect his decision and that he is the author of Module::Info - and I am thankful that he got back to me with feedback.
Well I learned a lot from the proces - and I will propably make patches to modules again if I get the opportunity, but at the same time I have other things on the drawing board so there is no reason to dwell on this.
