ExtUtils::Miniperl not listed in Module::Corelist ?
Message ID:
Hi p5p,

as discussed in , the ExtUtils::Miniperl
module hasn't been listed in Module::Corelist for some time although
it still gets installed by the build process.

% corelist -a ExtUtils::Miniperl
ExtUtils::Miniperl was first released with perl 5.00504
  5.00504    undef     
  5.006002   undef     
  5.008001   undef     
  5.008002   undef     
  5.008003   undef     
  5.008004   undef     
  5.008005   undef     
  5.008006   undef     
  5.009      undef     
  5.009001   undef     
  5.009005   undef     

I see it's a generated file. Presumably Porting/ has been
run in a clean tree since 5.9.5 so is missing.

This is clearly a bug somewhere, but what's the right fix? 
Should ExtUtils::Miniperl be listed at all?
Should it be installed at all?

FWIW, EU::Miniperl was removed from the CPAN ExtUtils::MakeMaker
distribution in 2002 because it wasn't considered useful to anybody
outside the core.
