Are you referring to $SRC/lib/ExtUtils/MANIFEST.SKIP ?  I'm a bit puzzled at 
all the stuff in there for 5.8.2, a lot of stuff looks like junk - for 
example why is this in there?


And why has the RCS entry which was in the 5.6.1 version been removed from 

The 5.6.1 version looks like a model of sanity compared to the 5.8.2 one, 
which looks like it fell into the release by mistake from someone's $HOME
