    Yes, it has. When I set up a new virtual machine (which I do via vagrant, I now include Task::CPAN::Reporter among the CPAN modules to be installed at the outset. That way, any CPAN distro I subsequently install gets a test report without my having to think about it.

    Earlier this year I assumed co-maintenance of Devel-NYTProf. I made extensive use of CPANtesters reports in determining whether my revisions were sufficiently acc…

One thing I found just now is CPAN::Reporter::Smoker. I seem to remember there being multiple turnkey solutions on CPAN by different people (basically a few of the most prolific testers codifying their own setups), but I can’t find more than that one right now.

    (There are, of course, CPAN::Reporter itself for CPAN.pm and cpanm-reporter for cpanminus, whereby you can send reports for the day-to-day module installing that you do manually. But those are missing the endless loop of a dedicated CPAN testing rig, which would poll PAUSE uploads and download and test them as they come in. Which needs some extra code to deal with hung installers, downtimes at CPAN Testers, etc etc – all the robustness stuff you’d want in an automated setup.)
