rjbs created a roll-your-own dzil tutorial. this brings back memories, maybe there should be monsters in it. otoh, since it mentions module::install, maybe the monster quota is already met. :-)
anyway, the tutorial is a nice read for those wanting to learn dist-zilla. there are some glitches here and there (eg, it still mentions AllFiles plugin instead of GatherDir, and other v1 to v2 misses - i'll send patches), but is otherwise wicked cool.
and some of my plugins are even mentioned! :-)
