DESCRIPTION

This module was written to ensure that a META.yml file, provided with a 
standard distribution uploaded to CPAN, meets the specifications that slowly 
being introduced to module uploads, via the use of ExtUtils::MakeMaker,
Module::Build and Module::Install.

which forms the basis for the contents of a META.json file. The full 
specification is now included with the CPAN-Meta distribution.
