    Tk does not build with 5.10.0.3. I am investigating...
    • Did Archive::Tar change, or whatever is used for extracting files within CPAN.pm? It seems that readonly files are now created with some extended attributes (?) and it's not possible to make them writable with a simple chmod(0666,$file). This break s pTk/mkVFunc, which is used in Tk's build process.

      (This is on Windows Vista)

      • Tk-804.028.tar.gz WORKSFORME on XP.

        This might be some combination of Archive::Tar and Windows Vista interacting oddly.

        Since we can fix this bug down the track with the use of an appropriate configure_requires Archive::Tar dependency in the Tk distribution, I'm not considering this a blocker.

        • Unfortunately configure_requires does not help here, because the damage (the extraction) is already done before META.yml is read.

          I made a new release (804.028_501) which should workaround the problem.
