There is already something like that for the CPANTS/kwalitee site, it has a test that checks whether there is a changelog present in the distribution: Module::CPANTS::Analyse::Kwalitee::Files.

Aside from that: What would be the benefit to test whether the changes file has a special syntax? The module would have to handle multiple styles of changes files I guess, as there is are lots of variations of 'Changes' files out there. Some even name them 'HISTORY' or 'WhatsNew' or what not...

At least I wouldn't find such a test that useful, as I'm not that picky about the format of a changelog. As long as the most important changes are documented somewhere and somehow. So I guess the most important thing is, that the Changes file is present.

But such a test would of course only benefit the maintainer/author of a module, and shouldn't be in the distribution IMO.

That is of course just my two cents, if YOU find such a module useful and would use it, then I don't see any argument against such a module.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
