Interestingly that then leads to a new problem :-/

$ vi MANIFEST # removed META.yml
$ make dist
rm -rf Foo-Bar-v0.0.3
/usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Manifest=manicopy,maniread" \
                -e "manicopy(maniread(),'Foo-Bar-v0.0.3', 'best');"
mkdir Foo-Bar-v0.0.3
mkdir Foo-Bar-v0.0.3/t
mkdir Foo-Bar-v0.0.3/lib
mkdir Foo-Bar-v0.0.3/lib/Foo
Generating META.yml
cd: 2: can't cd to Foo-Bar-v0.0.3
make: *** [distmeta] Error 2

I guess it's unwell and I should go exploring. Thanks for confirming
it's not just me buggering something up locally.

  We never decided to postpone this issue.
  We just agreed that we would deal with other issues first.
