  • Looking through several of those red minus signs, I saw that apparently a lot of the problem are caused by whether the YAML parser treats the META.yml file as UTF-8, or as some single byte encoding (most likely ISO-8859-1).

    Some examples: 1 [dagolden.com], 2 [dagolden.com], 3 [dagolden.com]

    It looks like a knot needs to be cut through, a decision needs to be made: what encoding should a META.yml file be? Maybe it could make use of a BOM [cpan.org] in case the default is ISO-8859-1, and the author prefers UTF-8, for some reason (for example, to spell his name corr

    • Yes -- saved me some time figuring out how to do a table like that, plus I told all the cranks on #p5p complaining about red-green colorblindness that I just copied CPANTS... :-)
