Message ID:
That’s essentially what we are doing for bioperl now, and it seems to work quite well.

Sorry if this has been answered before, but I couldn't find anything... How do I split my CPAN distro in two?

Say I have modules Foo::Core and Foo::Plugin in the same distribution, Foo. Over time, features accumulate and the plugin now has extra dependencies unneeded by most core users.

How do I make plugin a separate distribution? Just publish it as Foo::Plugin with a version greater than that of Foo?

Thank you,
