11:28 BooK so, what happens when the author in META is not the CPAN author who made the release?
11:28 BooK what's shown on metacpan ?
11:33 BooK I'm maintaining a module for an author who passed away, so I'd like to put him as the author, and add myself to x_contributors
11:33 BooK and I'm wondering how that'll show up on metacpan
12:09 * ranguard guesses the release author wins mostly - you'd have to try it
12:10 ranguard Also why not put a nice mention of the previous author in the POD and then move on?
12:12 BooK I could also just list everyone in x_contributors, just to be sure
12:13 BinGOs you mean like any of the modules that I maintain that were Jos' ?
12:13 BinGOs https://metacpan.org/source/BINGOS/Archive-Extract-0.76/META.json#L3
12:14 BinGOs https://metacpan.org/release/Archive-Extract
12:14 BooK seems metacpan does the right thing
12:16 BooK https://metacpan.org/release/BOOK/DateTime-Format-Mail-0.402 # yay!

16:10 oalders haarg: i see what you're saying.  with one item in the list the dropdown is useless
16:11 haarg and if you go to _002 manually, it still only has _002 in the dropdown
16:11 haarg so something is goofy with _001
16:22 oalders ah
16:22 oalders would be worth opening an issue
