Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::DAGOLDEN - Dist::Zilla configuration the way
    DAGOLDEN does it

    version 0.079

      # in dist.ini

    This is a Dist::Zilla PluginBundle. It is roughly equivalent to the
    following dist.ini:

      ; NextRelease acts *during* pre-release to write $VERSION and
      ; timestamp to Changes and  *after* release to add a new {{$NEXT}}
      ; section, so to act at the right time after release, it must actually
      ; come after Commit_Dirty_Files but before Commit_Changes in the
      ; dist.ini.  It will still act during pre-release as usual


      [Git::Commit / Commit_Changes] ; commit Changes (for new dev)

      [Git::Push]         ; push repo to remote
      push_to = origin

    To use this PluginBundle, just add it to your dist.ini. You can provide
    the following options:

    *   "is_task" — this indicates whether "TaskWeaver" or
        "SurgicalPodWeaver" should be used.

        Default is 0.

    *   "authority" — specifies the "x_authority" field for pause. Defaults
        to 'cpan:DAGOLDEN'.

    *   "auto_prereq" — this indicates whether "AutoPrereqs" should be used
        or not. Default is 1.

        # "auto_version" - this indicates whether "AutoVersion" should be
        used or not. Default is 0.

    *   "darkpan" — for private code; uses "FakeRelease" and fills in dummy
        repo/bugtracker data

    *   "fake_release" — swaps "FakeRelease" for "UploadToCPAN". Mostly
        useful for testing a dist.ini without risking a real release.

    *   "git_remote" — where to push after release

    *   "github_issues" — whether to use github issue tracker. Defaults is

    *   "stopwords" — add stopword for "Test::PodSpelling" (can be repeated)

    *   "tag_format" — given to "Git::Tag". Default is 'release-%v' to be

        robust than just the version number when parsing versions for

    *   "weaver_config" — specifies a Pod::Weaver bundle. Defaults to

    *   "version_regexp" — given to Git::NextVersion. Default

        is '^release-(.+)$'

    *   "no_git" — bypass all git-dependent plugins

    *   "no_copy_files" — skip copying Makefile.PL or cpanfile

    *   "no_critic" — omit "Test::Perl::Critic" tests

    *   "no_spellcheck" — omit "Test::PodSpelling" tests

    *   "no_coverage" — omit PodCoverage tests

    *   "no_minimum_perl" — omit "Test::MinimumVersion" tests

    *   "no_bugtracker" — DEPRECATED

    When running without git, "GatherDir" is used instead of
    "Git::GatherDir". and all git check and commit operations are disabled.

    By default, versions are taken/rewritten in the source file using
    "RewriteVersion" and "BumpVersionAfterRelease". If the "auto_version"
    option is true, the version is set by "AutoVersion" and munged with
    "PkgVersion". For "auto_version" the generated "cpanfile" is copied to
    the repo on build; otherwise, "Makefile.PL" is copied.

    This PluginBundle now supports "ConfigSlicer", so you can pass in
    options to the plugins used like this:

      Test::MinimumVersion.max_target_perl = 5.014
      ExecDir.dir = scripts

    This PluginBundle also supports "PluginRemover", so dropping a plugin is
    as easy as this:

      -remove = InsertCopyright
