It depends on what you want to achieve. Version numbers are kind of
contracts between the end user and the code. If there is not a single
user who ever relied on $VERSION="1.05" in the namespace
DBIx::MyParsePP::Parser, then there is nothing to worry about. In this
case you can ignore the message from PAUSE.

But if there is a user who relies that DBIx::MyParsePP::Parser will have
at least $VERSION="1.05", then you have to talk to them how to proceed.

If all you want is that PAUSE shuts up on the problem, you can visit
https://pause.perl.org/pause/authenquery?ACTION=reset_version . I
believe the page explains what it is doing. If not, please let us know.
