Releasing to CPAN and GitHub

The previous 17 years, I published over 1000 distributions for 65 modules to CPAN. Some modules saw over 100 versions, because my workflow was: release often. This works very well when you work alone and regularly with your modules. Recently, my needs shifted a little. There are some (minor) advantages to use GIT. And once that transfer is made, the step to GitHub is made. Everyone has his/her own way of releasing, with tricks to improve the process. I will demonstrate how my process works and how I changed my workflow. It will demonstrate how I load my whole history into git and github with little effort.
