Pod::Weaver::Section::Bugs - a section for bugtracker info


version 4.020


This section plugin will produce a hunk of Pod giving bug reporting information for the document, like this:

  =head1 BUGS

  Please report any bugs or feature requests on the bugtracker website

  When submitting a bug or request, please include a test-file or a
  patch to an existing test-file that illustrates the bug or desired

This plugin requires a distmeta parameter containing a hash reference of CPAN::Meta::Spec distribution metadata and at least one of one of the parameters web or mailto defined in $meta->{resources}{bugtracker}.

Using Pod::Weaver::Section::Bugs with Dist::Zilla

When the PodWeaver plugin is used, the distmeta parameter comes from the dist's distmeta data. Since this section is skipped when no bugtracker data is in the distmeta, you'll need to make sure it's there. A number of plugins set this data up automatically. To manually configure your bugtracker data, you can add something like the following to dist.ini:

  bugtracker.web =
  bugtracker.mailto =

  ; Perhaps add repository stuff here:
  repository.url =
  repository.web =
  repository.type =



This module should work on any version of perl still receiving updates from the Perl 5 Porters. This means it should work on any version of perl released in the last two to three years. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.


The title of the header to be added. (default: "BUGS")
