#770 Update URL tag in Perl packaging guidelines
Closed: fixed 3 years ago Opened 3 years ago by ppisar.

Proposed guidelines change:

Perl packaging guidelines documents recommended URL tag value. Please update it like this:

-For CPAN-based packages the URL tag should use a non-versioned search.cpan.org URL. E.g., if one were packaging the module Net::XMPP, the URL would be: 
-URL: http://search.cpan.org/dist/Net-XMPP/
+For CPAN-based packages the URL tag should use a non-versioned metacpan.org URL. E.g., if one were packaging the module Net::XMPP, the URL would be: 
+URL: https://metacpan.org/release/Net-XMPP

Explanation

The documented search.cpan.org service is deprecated in favor or metacpan.org (https://log.perl.org/2018/05/goodbye-search-dot-cpan-dot-org.html).

Since this is just an update to reflect the current reality, I've made the requested change. As a bonus, it gets rid of the recommendation to use an unencrypted URL.
