CPAN dos not recognize this version. I asked upstream.

From the maintainer:

"I put this module up for adoption, no longer able to work on it. It seems to have now reverted back to the original owner, PARDUS, even though he did not request this. I uploaded 0.08 to apply a patch someone sent me, but got a fail message as it needs approval from the maintainer. So I think that version is just there under my directory, but not the latest version.

A bit of a mess, not sure how to fix it."

I think I am the someone who sent a patch. It prevents failure in the tests if XDG_CONFIG_HOME is set and xdg-user-dirs is installed on the system. It is a one line addition, so it could be done with a sed too...

Now that you mention it, I did see your name associated with the change.

The problem with a sed to the source is that it removes the ability to update via cpan. Would a sed to /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.26.1/File/BaseDir.pm work after a cpan install work?

The change is in one of the tests, not in the perl module itself. I do not know what cpan does when tests do not pass. Note that there are two conditions for failure: XDG_CONFIG_HOME is set and xdg-user-dirs is installed on the system. There is a bug report explaining that.

What amazes me is that, although File::BaseDir is required by chromium (at least according to our book), it does not seem to receive much attention.
