Re: CPAN/PAUSE - releases not indexed due to version number
Message ID:
Hi Neil & other PAUSE admins,

Sorry for having caused a flood of emails. I ran "pause reindex '*'" CLI
command a few hours ago aftering seeing a couple of my distributions not
existing on MetaCPAN, which is a mistake. Should've just run reindex on the
missing distributions instead of all. The failures were indeed caused by
reindexing older releases too (due to the '*'). But I do run 'pause
cleanup' pretty often so for most distros I only have one release on my

Sorry again.
