IMHO it should only generate MANIFEST.SKIP as the other file is generated from the first one.

Warnings when using it without MANIFEST file:

Could not add META.yml to MANIFEST:
Could not add META.json to MANIFEST:

So, reading from ExtUtils::Manifest, here's an interesting bit:

If no MANIFEST.SKIP file is found, a default set of skips will be used,
similar to the example above. If you want nothing skipped, simply make an empty

That means there's a difference between having no MANIFEST.SKIP, having an empty MANIFEST.SKIP, and one with content. This also implies having both a MANIFEST and a MANIFEST.SKIP are not mutually exclusive.

Thinking about it further, I'm not sure having a MANIFEST.SKIP is better than MANIFEST.

Since no one is apparently interested in this, I see no need to work on this. @szabgab, if you are still interested in this, and have time to spend on it, please reopen the issue.

Thank you.
