19:35 plicease I have made a proof of concept Alien module that uses ExtUtils::MakeMaker
19:36 plicease https://github.com/plicease/Alien-Libmicrohttpd
19:36 plicease It uses a new builder class that works with Alien::Base:
19:36 plicease https://github.com/plicease/Alien-Builder
19:37 plicease it requires a few changes to Alien::Base, and for it to be useful, to eventually spin Alien::Base::ModuleBuild into its own distribution.
19:40 plicease I will be opening tickets and PRs against Alien::Base in the near future but am interested in any thoughts that people have on the design
19:41 plicease now being a good time to make design changes.
19:41 plicease the retriever interface in particular needs some thought!
19:43 plicease To be sure: near term goal is to make minor changes to Alien::Base so that it works nicely with Alien::Builder
19:43 plicease long term goal (requiring agreement): is to spin AB::ModuleBuild into its own distribution.
