18:04 ether on https://metacpan.org/recent, it looks like it's picking up .pm's "# ABSTRACT" lines, rather than "=head1 NAME ... " -- this seems wrong
18:04 dipsy [ Recent - metacpan.org - Perl programming language ]
18:04 ether e.g. look at the line for Dist-Zilla-Plugin-Conflicts-0.12 -- it's pulling out a line from a template, not the module's real abstract
18:07 ether I can write this up as a ticket if someone agrees that it's a problem or has further insights
19:17 ranguard ether: Umm, you want a summary of what this is - which is the ABSTRACT? - not just the name of a specific package which may or may not have a comment about what it is?
19:42 ether some modules include a comment shortly after the package declaration, of the form  # ABSTRACT: a short description of this module
19:43 ether some tools, such as Dist::Zilla, (optionally) use this information in META.json etc
19:43 ether it appears that metacpan's recent uploads page is using this as well
19:54 ranguard ether: think a ticket with a couple of examples is probably going to be easiest way to discuss this :)
20:09 ether done - https://github.com/CPAN-AP​I/metacpan-web/issues/936
