Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Bugtracker - Automatically sets the bugtracker URL and mailto


version 1.111080


In dist.ini:



This plugin sets the distribution's bugtracker URL and possibly the email address as metadata. You can set the web and the mailto values independently in the plugin configuration.



This is the bugtracker URL. It defaults to the CPAN RT URL, so it equivalent to:

    web = http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=%s

See interpolate() for more information.


This is the optional email address to which bug reports can be sent. If the CPAN RT bugtracker is used, the email address defaults to bug-%l at rt.cpan.org - see interpolate() for what this means.

If a different bugtracker URL is used, the email address is only included in the metadata if it is explicitly given.

In the following examples, assume that the distribution is called Foo-Bar.

Example 1:


will produce the defaults:

    web:    http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=Foo-Bar
    mailto: bug-foo-bar at rt.cpan.org

Example 2:

To suppress the mailto from example 1, use:

    mailto =

Example 3:

    web = http://github.com/me/%s/issues

will only produce a web entry, but not a mailto entry:

    web: http://github.com/me/Foo-Bar/issues

Example 4:

    mailto = me@example.org

will produce:

    web:    http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=Foo-Bar
    mailto: me@example.org

Example 5:

    web = http://github.com/me/%s/issues
    mailto = bug-%U@example.org

will only produce a web entry, but not a mailto entry:

    web:    http://github.com/me/Foo-Bar/issues
    mailto: bug-FOO-BAR@example.org

See CPAN::Meta::Spec for more information.


Both the web and mailto strings are interpolated as follows:

    %s  The distribution name as is (e.g., 'Foo-Bar')
    %l  The distribution name in lowercase (e.g., 'foo-bar')
    %U  The distribution name in uppercase (e.g., 'FOO-BAR')
    %%  A literal '%' sign


Sets the bugtracker URL and possibly email address in the distribution's metadata.
