Visibility: warning

The Homepage field for this package points to CPAN and the URL includes the version. It's better to link to the unversioned CPAN page so that the URL doesn't have to be updated for each new release. For example, use:

http://search.cpan.org/dist/HTML-Template/

or

https://metacpan.org/release/HTML-Template/

not:

http://search.cpan.org/~samtregar/HTML-Template-2.9/
