my autoprereq plugin for dist-zilla is now going core. however, it's currently existing as a dist of its own within cpan... since the module does not change name, what is needed to make sure rjbs can upload dzil v2 when it's ready? is giving co-maint rights on pause enough? will i have to remove previous tarballs?
the same kind of question can be asked for obsoleting a given module. there's (afaik) no way to tell cpan / cpanplus that foo::bar is replacing bar::foo... those problems are tackled for linux distribution packages, could we reuse some of their logic here?
