how to do module deprecations right on the trunk?
Message ID:
Among the recent deprecations of modules let me pick just one for the
sake of clarity: Module::Pluggable in commit v5.17.8-36-gc354f26.

Since this commit CoreList has not changed, but I think it should have.

This should prevent bogus fail reports from my smoker like this one
where an innocent third party (Color-Library-0.021) got a fail report
just because the new warning was introduced:

Since Color-Library-0.021 declares a dependency on Module::Pluggable and promises to install dependencies and consults the
Module::CoreList to identify deprecations, it would have installed it
and the warning would have been averted.


Can it be done, that deprecations get immediate reflection in core's

Other suggestions?
