Handling of $VERSION in ExtUtils-ParseXS
Message ID:
ExtUtils-ParseXS is found under dist/, which means it is 
"blead-upstream."  Hence, the incrementing of $VERSION numbers is P5P's 
responsibility -- but I'm not sure of what the correct procedure is.

     Increase $ExtUtils::Typemaps::VERSION to 3.37

... $VERSION was bumped *only* in 
dist/ExtUtils-ParseXS/lib/ExtUtils/  In all the other 
dist/ExtUtils-ParseXS/lib/ExtUtils/*.pm files $VERSION remained at 3.36. 
(CPAN is still at 3.35.)

My gut feeling is that's wrong, i.e., $VERSION should have been 
incremented to 3.37 in all modules.

I ask because I'm ready to apply Pali's documentation correction, which 
necessitates a $VERSION increment in (at least) 
dist/ExtUtils-ParseXS/lib/ExtUtils/ParseXS/  Should I:

* bring everything up to 3.37?

* increment everything to 3.38?

Please advise.

Thank you very much.
