Module abstract: Is its length still limited?
Message ID:
IIRC, there was once a 44-character limit to the length of a CPAN module 
abstract:  the brief description which follows the module's name in the 
NAME section of POD.

But when I uploaded a module a couple of hours ago, I noted that, at 
least on, an abstract much longer than 44 characters was 
fully displayed.

Has this restriction been relaxed?  Did it ever exist?  I searched 
perlmod, perlnewmod, perlmodstyle, etc., as well as googling this 
group's archives, but came up with very little re module abstracts?

Thank you very much.
