Re: PAUSE & CPAN conflict between MP3::TAG::ID3v1 andMP3::Tag::ID3v1 [ILYAZ, THOGEE]
Message ID:
This is a very old story, and sorry to bother you all about it again.

Just to refresh the memories, I include the last message I can find in
this thread below in its entirety.

The problem is that notwithstanding the message below, I continue to
receive “indexing failed” reports from PAUSE (attached).  This defect
seems to be cosmetic (since the MAIN Perl module IS indexed) — but

Thanks for all your great work,

PAUSE doesn’t let these situations occur now, but we have some historical cases. I’m sorting these out so that we don’t need code in the toolchain for dealing with permissions conflicts.
