Pod::Weaver::Section::Bugs(3) a section for bugtracker info


version 4.013


This section plugin will produce a hunk of Pod giving bug reporting information for the document, like this:

  =head1 BUGS
  Please report any bugs or feature requests on the bugtracker website
  When submitting a bug or request, please include a test-file or a
  patch to an existing test-file that illustrates the bug or desired

This plugin requires a "distmeta" parameter containing a hash reference of CPAN::Meta::Spec distribution metadata and at least one of one of the parameters "web" or "mailto" defined in "$meta->{resources}{bugtracker}".

Using Pod::Weaver::Section::Bugs with Dist::Zilla

When the PodWeaver plugin is used, the "distmeta" parameter comes from the dist's distmeta data. Since this section is skipped when no bugtracker data is in the distmeta, you'll need to make sure it's there. A number of plugins set this data up automatically. To manually configure your bugtracker data, you can add something like the following to "dist.ini":

  bugtracker.web = http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Pod-Weaver-Example
  bugtracker.mailto = [email protected]
  ; Perhaps add repository stuff here:
  repository.url =
  repository.web =
  repository.type =



The title of the header to be added. (default: ``BUGS'')
