Description Paul Howarth 2011-04-20 15:28:48 UTC
Spec URL:

It is standard practice to include a Changes file in your distribution. The
purpose of the Changes file is to help a user figure out what has changed
since the last release.

People have devised many ways to write the Changes file. A preliminary
specification has been created (CPAN::Changes::Spec) to encourage module
authors to write clear and concise Changes.

This module will help users programmatically read and write Changes files
that conform to the specification.

Comment 2 Paul Howarth 2011-04-22 08:58:49 UTC
New Package SCM Request
Package Name: perl-CPAN-Changes
Short Description: Read and write Changes files
Owners: pghmcfc
Branches: F-13 F-14 F-15
InitialCC: perl-sig

No EPEL branches due to needing perl 5.10 and perl(version) 0.79 (EL-6 has 0.77, but perhaps there will be an update in EL-6.1?).

Thanks for the review Marcela.
