This is a bug report for perl from slaven@rezic.de,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.20.1.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

5.20.1-RC1 ships with Module::CoreList 5.020001, while the newest on
CPAN is 5.021003. Unfortunately 5.21.3 came before 5.20.1, so the
latest version on CPAN is missing the 5.20.1 information. This is
already causing breakage, e.g. distributions using Test::Prereq have
test failures.

I have the feeling that the current versioning scheme
(Module::CoreList version == perl version) is problematic. Just using
an increasing number or a date-based version number would be better.
