  • Normally you won't be able to look at the Makefile.PL or the YAML files after instalation, so this would only be useful for reporting errors found during installation - which testers and CPANPLUS does quite nicely.

    After installation all knowledge of the original package is long gone...

    • There might be other ways to do this even if the distribution is gone. Somewhere in the universe that information exist. The trick is to figure out how to get it. So it is not as simple as opening a file, but I figure there might be one or two smart people who don't give up so easily. :)

      A lot of the other features do not depend on this, however, and, again, testers and CPANPLUS are only as good as the tests, which everyone should realize are never perfect.
