  • 1. It only does that for modules that use auto_install, against recommendations otherwise.

    2. I tried to remove that feature entirely, but the Catalyst people forced me to put it back in because it critically broke their workflow.

    3. The bug you are reporting has already been fixed in 0.86 and Module::Install doesn't do that any more.

    4. Notwithstanding all of the above, old releases by people that use auto_install even though they are told not to, and don't do updated released, will continue to display that b

    • Notwithstanding all of the above, old releases by people that use auto_install even though they are told not to, and don't do updated released, will continue to display that bug.

      Copy and paste strikes again!

      • Indeed, but we've known all along that it was copy and paste because that was the best option we had to hand.

        Fortunately, 5.10.1 will finally change that, and we can start to look at how we make life sane again.

      So it should be sufficient if I update inc::Module::Install?

      4. Notwithstanding all of the above, old releases by people that use auto_install even though they are told not to, and don't do updated released, will continue to display that bug. Sorry.

      :-)

      Oh, and if I sounded to harsh, this wasn't targeted at you, because I sort of remembered that this issue is caused by people using Module::Install in outdated ways.

      • Alas no, the authors of the offending modules must update inc::Module::Install and do new releases.

        But now that I'm starting to get some traction on all-of-cpan analysis and monitoring, I hope to start making some process and getting older modules updated.

  • Set "PERL_EXTUTILS_AUTOINSTALL=--default-deps". That saves a certain amount of hatred.
