Dist::Zilla is meant to make it easy to release your free software to the CPAN. Like ExtUtils::MakeMaker or Module::Build, it takes your source code and builds a tarball that can be installed by other users. Unlike those tools, though, Dist::Zilla takes care of all kinds of boring and mindless tasks so that you, the programmer, are free to just write your code.
