Performing Initial Dist::Zilla Configuration

You can do a lot of things without ever configuring Dist::Zilla, but creating a user configuration file up front can save you time later. This file will live at ~/.dzil/config.ini, and will provide information in "stashes" used to get defaults for things like your username, your preferred license, and so on.

Dist::Zilla can produce this file for you, if you run dzil setup. If you prefer to do things the old fashioned way, here's a sample config.ini suitable for copying, pasting, and editing:
