CPAN Index Version Problem with Sys-Syslog-0.26.tar.gz
Message ID:
Dear all,

    This is imacat from Taiwan.  I wonder who should I report this
problem to.  The CPAN index seems to have a problem indexing
Sys-Syslog-0.26.tar.gz.  The Sys::Syslog in Sys-Syslog-0.26.tar.gz
should be of version 0.26, but not 0.25.

imacat@rinse CPAN/modules % gunzip -c 02packages.details.txt.gz| grep
Sys::Syslog                        0.25  S/SA/SAPER/Sys-Syslog-0.26.tar.gz
Sys::Syslog::Win32                undef  S/SA/SAPER/Sys-Syslog-0.24.tar.gz
Sys::SyslogMessages                0.02  J/JU/JUDITH/Sys-SyslogMessages-0.02.tar.gz
imacat@rinse CPAN/modules %

    This time the problem does not look like the previous ones.  I tried
to look into the  It is indeed 0.26, with a clean version
text that is parsable with ExtUtils::MakeMaker:

imacat@rinse /tmp/Sys-Syslog-0.26 % perl -MExtUtils::MakeMaker -le
'print MM->parse_version(shift)'
imacat@rinse /tmp/Sys-Syslog-0.26 %

    The result is that the CPAN shell "r" and "upgrade" commands fails
to recognize this update.  Does anyone know where should I address this
problem to?  Thank you.
