It seems that Dist::CheckConflicts is not required during runtime, and is only required during configuration and building. If this is correct, could the runtime dependency for Dist::CheckConflicts be removed from Makefile.PL and friends? The issue came up during the process of packaging version 0.007 of the module, and this could save up a package dependency.
I'd be interested in accepting a patch for this, but it isn't a high priority for me.
Would something like this be enough? Tests still pass.
Sorry, the file you edited is automatically generated by Dist::Zilla - a proper solution should probably reside in Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Conflicts
I could potentially require autodie 2.11 as a dependency, although it isn't actually required. This would guarantee that the conflict never arises.
This was fixed in the latest release.
