Test::CPAN::Changes - Validation of the Changes file in a CPAN distribution

use Test::More;
eval 'use Test::CPAN::Changes';
plan skip_all => 'Test::CPAN::Changes required for this test' if $@;

This module allows CPAN authors to write automated tests to ensure their changelogs match the specification.

Simple wrapper around "changes_file_ok". Declares a four test plan, and uses the default filename of "Changes".

Checks the contents of the changes file against the specification. No plan is declared and if the filename is undefined, "Changes" is used.

%arg may include a version entry, in which case the entry for that version must exist and have content. This is useful to ensure that the version currently being released has documented changes.
