<h2>Dist::Zilla</h2>
<p>
Dist::Zilla is a program to make it easier to write, package, manage, and
release free software. It's targeted at libraries written in <a
href='http://perl.org/'>the Perl programming language</a> and released to
the <a href='http://www.cpan.org/'>CPAN</a>. If you release software to
the CPAN, Dist::Zilla can probably save you a lot of work. It has
plugins to automate dozens of boring steps including:
</p>
<ul>
<li>adding copyright and license notices</li>
<li><a href='tutorial/prereq.html'>determining prerequisites</a></li>
<li>building Makefile.PL or Build.PL install tools</li>
<li><a href='tutorial/vcs.html'>tagging releases in your source code control</a></li>
<li><a href='tutorial/release.html'>uploading to the CPAN</a></li>
<li>adding stock tests for compilation, documentation, and style</li>
<li><a href='tutorial/writing-docs.html'>simplifying the documentation process</a></li>
<li>managing version numbers</li>
