17:11 ugexe last thing i need to hammer out is how to treat special directories vs resources. For instance: resource might contain a build-time file (.platform-library-name) or a files that already exist, but all of them go into `files`. This is different from `bin` where all the files were (currently) expected to exist as part of the actual archive
17:13 ugexe one solution may be to use `files` to contain all files (currently doesnt list provides), or to only list files that aren't otherwise implied in the meta6 itself (resources is already implied in `resources`, but `bin/` has no such section)
17:27 ugexe otherwise we will hit trouble when/if we start hashing all files of a distribution
17:29 ugexe because you can extend the meta6.json sure, but the contents get changed so requires reconstructing that as well
17:38 ugexe jdv79: do you remember anything missing from the meta6 that would be helpful for metacpan?

20:47 ugexe maybe makes more sense to create file-id as `!file-id($dist-id, $name)`. then it follows a pattern that allows adding an additional prefix to be more specific (self!repo-prefix, $dist-id, $name)
20:48 ugexe instead of !file-id($name, $dist-id)
21:05 ugexe hell maybe !file-id could be in a role for CURI as well as Distribution, so Distribution can essentially know the hashing algorithm used for whatever CUR its from
