Tools for pumpkings

[ #17462 ]
Managing the development of perl means managing the modules that have a dual existence on CPAN. This might be troublesome sometimes. Some tools may help the pumpking:
  • I want a tool to get the most recent version number of all dual-life distributions on CPAN (both stable and alpha versions if possible.) Then, I can compare it to the version in the core (and decide to integrate it or not). What's the most straightforward way to get this info?
  • Slaven Rezic wrote a tool, cmpVERSION.pl, that compare perl source trees for changed modules that have the same version. Mostly, this helps for core-only modules, to ensure their $VERSION is being updated when a perl release is made.
