Hearing no objection, I merged these into blead.  In reverse order:

commit 1e888967e7732658ae6e3e523176253770138968
Author: James E Keenan <>

    Add ABSTRACT, LICENSE, AUTHOR, etc. elements.

commit fb686fbfd600a6525f4f9a5371881e8b64be46e0
Author: James E Keenan <>

    Ensure that all tests in t/cwd.t have descriptions.

commit 5f3e13312a9a8859ea179c3fda19bc7502d1aad8
Author: James E Keenan <>

    Provide .gitignore for PathTools distribution.

Thank you very much.
