Currently if no META.yml or json is presented in the dist tree, metacpan displays Dependencies: none. For example: https://metacpan.org/module/Date::FromToday
However it should display something like unknown, because there is no way to get the dependencies list.
PS: I am changing the ticket after the comment of @shadowcat-mst
Yes, but the dist has no META.yml or META.json
The actual bug here is "metacpan says 'dependencies none' rather than 'buggered if I know, the author failed at META.*'"
Dependencies could mention when 'dynamic_config' is true, fixes #655,…
… fixes #654
