[PATCH] Add CPANPLUS 0.78 to the core
Message ID:

attached is the patch to add CPANPLUS 0.78 (latest release) to the  
core. This
release has all outstanding bugs fixed and has passed all smoke tests  
for some
time; hereby it is declared stable[1].

As per usual, this is a patch against the latest bleadperl, and all  
tests pass
succesfully on my development box.

As for all other patches, I've used my auto-patch[2] script to  
generate this patch.
However the script isn't educated yet how to deal with the "vms/ 
file[3] when adding new script files to the core. Hopefully someone  
on the list
(possibly you Craig ;) know how to alter this file to have it do the  
right thing.

Any feedback is welcome,

	Jos Boumans

[2] I'll send this script as a seperate patch in the hope it proves  
useful to
     pumpkings and other module updaters
[3] This is the type of change that's needed:

     WARNING! You should add entries like the following
     to vms/descrip_mms.template (Using ptardiff as an example)
     Unfortunately I dont understand what these entries
     do, so I wont change them automatically:

358-utils3 = [.utils] [.lib] [.utils]  
[.utils] [.utils]
359:utils4 = [.utils] [.utils] [.utils]  
[.utils] [.utils] [.utils] [.utils]
360-utils5 = [.utils] [.utils]
570:[.utils] : [.utils]ptardiff.PL $(ARCHDIR)
571-    $(MINIPERL) -"I[-.lib]" $(MMS$SOURCE)
