how to release XS dists from ./dist
Message ID:
I've been trying to eliminate unneeded extra repositories used upstream-blead
dists.  I want it to be easy to keep perl5.git as the only repo needed for
making a CPAN release, so that it's as easy and uniform as possible, and can be
done, perhaps, by release managers, taking us further into the golden years of
perl release simplification.

I hit a snag with PathTools.  I suspect it's something simple, but I've never
dealt with it, so I'd appreciate any advice, because for me it ain't easy.
(I hit this snag while adding "Changes," which led to the brief manifest.t
failure.  I was under pressure to get the new release out for the CVEs.)

PathTools wants ppport.h to ship with it.  It keeps this in its GitHub repo,
and releases make from there are hunky dory.  When I try to release from blead,
it fails, and obviously keeping another copy of ppport.h in its repo would be
no good.

If somebody could sort this out, they would be heroes, and I would be dancing
in the street.
