  • This can happen if the module name can't be found in the files I think. Or if the VERSION value can't be parsed. Something like that. We really need a "make lint" stage :-)
    • I'll look into it, but I don't believe that's the case. I'm not CPAN guru but I do know how to build a package. IIRC I used Module::Starter for the ones I uploaded in October, and I built the tarballs using "make dist" and "make disttest" and everything was fine then. I'll probably just re-upload.

  • The file isn't a tar.gz:

    tony@develop-help:~$ tar tzf /mnt/hdc2/ftp/pub/cpan/authors/id/S/SK/SKUD/MasonX-StaticBuilder-0.01.tar.gz

    gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    tony@develop-help:~$ file /mnt/hdc2/ftp/pub/cpan/authors/id/S/SK/SKUD/MasonX-StaticBuilder-0.01.tar.gz
    /mnt/hdc2/ftp/pub/cpan/authors/id/S/SK/SKUD/MasonX-StaticBuilder-0.01.tar.gz: HTML document text

    From looking at it, you've got some sort of HTML wrapper around the act

    • Ha! OK, that explains it. It's convoluted and stupid but I know what happened. I was working on the modules over on my hosted server, and rather than do the file upload to PAUSE as I usually do, I chucked the files in a web-accessible tmp directory and pointed PAUSE at the URL. But around that time, I'd screwed with HTML::Mason on my website to tell it to handle all files except those explicitly excluded. I excluded JPGs and CSS and crap like that, but I probably didn't explicitly exclude tarballs. So
