Why are you storing the changelog in the p5p repo? less than half of 
other /dist modules do it. I thought changelog and readme for a /dist 
module should only exist in the CPAN tarball release of a /dist, not p5p 
repo. META files also fall into this category of useless for core 
building, but needed for CPAN tarball.

Searching the repo I find

http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/blob/HEAD:/dist/base/META.yml it says 
version 2.15, but base.pm is at 2.22 in core 
http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/blob/HEAD:/dist/base/lib/base.pm and 
on CPAN it is at 2.18 
https://metacpan.org/source/RGARCIA/base-2.18/META.yml , hence I think 
http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/blob/HEAD:/dist/base/META.yml needs 
to be deleted from the repo. Nobody is updating it or knows it exists 
and it wastes space/time extracting it out of the tarball when smoking.
