Some people (not me; I think they're slightly NUTS) believe that it should be possible to fork a CPAN module from the CPAN sources only, and thus every tarball of every distribution should contain everything necessary to take over maintainership of a module. I say that people who want to know what the silly POD-checking tests look like should be able to find a thousand verbatim instances on the CPAN, and anyone who can't isn't fit to take over maintainership of someone else's module. -- c
