1Patching instructions for ExtUtils::CBuilder
31. Check for any changes to .pm files since dev or stable Perl release. E.g.
4to check for changes since v5.15.8:

92. If you are making the first change since the last Perl release, you need to
10bump the $VERSION in all .pm files and update the Changes file with the new
11version. In the Changes file, put the expected *NEXT* release of Perl (dev or
12stable) as the release date and version. E.g. after v5.15.8, I added this line

15 0.280206 - 2012-03-20 (Perl v5.15.9)
