NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaYAML::Minimal - Generate a reductionist YAML META file for compatibility only

VERSION

version 0.001001

SYNOPSIS

  [MetaYAML::Minimal]
  filename = META.yml ; default
  version  = 1.4      ; default

DESCRIPTION

Generally, if you're creating both META.json and META.yml, then you're doing so purely for compatibility reasons.

In such circumstances, using the same meta-data for both leads to a lot of cruft in META.yml

This Dist::Zilla extension is for such circumstances.

However, if you are only shipping META.yml and NOT META.json, then using this extension would be harmful and cause loss of information.

Presently, this extension is a PROTOTYPE, and just culls fields leading with x_ passed by Dist::Zilla.

The final behavior may require enhancements to CPAN::Meta::Converter and might be possibly superseded by patches to MetaYAML itself.
