One problem with this is when you get dinged for an unknown key.  This means you can't extend your meta YAML file.  It's a hash disguised as YAML.  There shouldn't be a problem with adding to it, only subtracting from it.

On a side note, I still don't understand why I sometimes get dinged for CPANTs errors.

Here's one for HOP-Lexer (

  STDERR: Invalid row in Debian file: "libhtml-wikiconverter-moinmoin-perl", "HTM

I have no idea what this is and I have no way of correcting it yet I am getting dinged for it.  I see that I can send an email to, but why?  I don't understand why CPANTs bugs are counted against me.
