A collection of distribution preferences for CPAN.pm
This directory contains a number of files for the CPAN.pm distroprefs system.
In a nutshell, use these files if you encounter problems when installing or testing CPAN modules — maybe the solution for the problem is already contained here.
How to use it: you can checkout the whole directory into ~/.cpan/prefs or ~/.local/share/.cpan/prefs (depending on your CPAN.pm distribution). However, it's recommended to pick only the distropref files you really need, so just copy or symlink these files only. Most files are named after the CPAN distribution (e.g. X11-Xlib.yml for the CPAN distribution X11-Xlib). While CPAN.pm is building a module, and a matching distropref file is found, you'll see something like
______________________ D i s t r o P r e f s ______________________ X11-Xlib.dd
in the log output.
