Dist::Zilla::Role::BundleDeps This role attempts to solve the problem of communicating dependencies to META.* from bundles in a different way. My first attempt was "[Prereqs::Plugins]", which added all values that are seen in the "dist.ini" to dependencies. However, that was inherently limited, as the ":version" specifier is lost before the plugins appear on "$zilla->plugins" This Role however, can see any declarations of ":version" your bundle advertises, by standing between your "bundle_config" method and "Dist::Zilla" INSTALLATION This is a Perl module distribution.
