  • I have no idea, but I knew it happens. Something to do with the ports system and version numbers. That's why dists like DBIx::Class and such started using 0.xxyyy as the verison number instead of 0.xx, because when things were stuffed into FBSD ports, it had crazy ideas of what things where newer than other things.
    • In fact, from the DBIC source:

      # Always remember to do all digits for the version even if they're 0
      # i.e. first release of 0.XX *must* be 0.XX000. This avoids fBSD ports
      # brain damage and presumably various other packaging systems too

      $VERSION = '0.07006';
      • That would be my fault. As the FreeBSD maintainer for DBIx::Class, I requested this, and I'm very happy it's now policy across both DBIC and Catalyst. It's not because we can't handle the situation, like tagg describes, but it's simply more (error-prone) work for us. So personally I prefer not to.
