I'm confused. Did Module::CoreList 5.20160410 ever exist? The version currently in blead is 5.20160420, but there was no April 20th release, so there has been no subsequent CPAN release of it. I believe this ticket should be rejected. Am I mistaken? -- rjbs

Yes, 20164010 was the release date of 5.22.2 RC1, but as per the release managers' guide I did not request a new release of M::CL. That step is skipped for release candidates; a new M::CL will be released when 5.22.2 proper is released. =head3 Module::CoreList nagging I<You MUST SKIP this step for RC> Remind the current maintainer of C<Module::CoreList> to push a new release to CPAN.

I agree, unless there is some problem with the instructions in the RMG that I'm missing here.

Maybe I should explain why this is a problem. My smoker's selection schema for CPAN distributions is to select everything which is indexed. This means that in situations like these an older Module::CoreList version than required for correct functioning for this perl may slip in, causing distribution depending on M::C to fail. Actually this is happening (e.g. for Mojolicious-Command-listdeps-0.08) and is causing unnecessary fail reports for the module author and unnecessary entries on the beforemaintrelease page. I see two solutions here: * I change the selection scheme in my smoker --- for example an indexed distribution which would cause a downgrade to one of its modules should not be tested. I have to think about this if it has other implications. And I don't know how other smoker selection schemes look like. * The release policy is changed, and Module::CoreList CPAN releases happen even for RC releases (my favorite). Regards, Slaven
