I've been using brian d foy / Andy Lester's rather useful Module::Release to automate releasing new modules to CPAN and uploading code drops to Sourceforge for a while now.
But as part of a general organisational cleanup, I moved my code repositories away from CVS to Subversion, and while I was doing that I chugged down the Module::Build koolade too.
Disaster. Module::Release doesn't grok Module::Build, nor does it know how to "tag" files in a Subversion repository. Module::Release is very much CVS + Makefile.PL only.
Hence Module::Release::Extras, at a CPAN mirror near you. Right now, this provides two subclasses that you can use with release(1) and an appropriate subclass line in your
And if you need to use both of these together, see M::R::NIKC for an example of how to do it.
