I copied the files from CPAN and put them into the git branch as well as adding a changes file. This is my first time doing this so let me know what you think. The POD was interleaved on git but at the bottom on CPAN.

I appreciate the time you took to do this; I know that these things take effort.

However, there are a number of issues with your pull request, some superficial and some fundamental, that mean I will not accept it or anything much like it.

Most superficially, your description is both incorrect and unclear. Incorrect in that if I look at your change, it does not add a changes file. Unclear in that I don't understand what you mean by "add make environment and other files from cpan", but as far as I can tell, it doesn't do that either.

Fundamentally, I think you have misunderstood that the CPAN distribution is generated from these files, using Dist::Zilla, and thus it would not be appropriate to merge in the generated files. I have, historically, kept a branch ('upstream') that contains the generated files, too, which I neglected to update when I made the latest release; I will try to find the time to address that for this latest release. But this would not be the way to go about resolving that---your branch loses information about the provenance of that branch.

So while I do acknowledge your effort, I'm afraid I'm not going to be merging this.
