  • About: I blog about Perl.
  • Commented on CPAN Testers & pre-requisite reporting
    I agree with Peter Rabbitsons solution, I left a comment to that same effect in the original post. I am the one making these Test::More changes, and I would have been a lot more reluctant to make these alpha releases...
  • Commented on Test::More has lots of crazy new development that's breaking my modules
    As the person making the Test::More changes, I have to agree with this idea: Failures due to alpha versions of Test::More should not be red marks against OTHER modules that in no way took action to cause the problem. If...

  • Commented on Changes to Test::Builder/More/Simple incoming
    Samuel, The problem there is with the test, not Test::Builder, though the changes in Test::Builder exposed the bug. Basically Test::Builder is getting these args: $VAR1 = [ 'tests', 3, 'Can\'t prevent leaks without Scalar::Util::weaken' ]; The problem is here: 4...
  • Commented on Test::More - New Maintainer, Also stop version checking!
    Nathan, I agree that in 99% of cases it is fine to alter behavior based on version. There was never an official Test::More 1.5 release. There were experimental alphas only. Some people helped Schwern by downloading these alphas, or using...

  • Nathan Nutter commented on Test::More - New Maintainer, Also stop version checking!

    I was concerned only with the specific line I quoted as it seems to be putting blame on the wrong place. However, with the clarifications you have made it seems like the sentiment of it was more along the lines of "assuming that features in an alpha release would be present in the final release is not appropriate".

    Can’t wait to read what the new roadmap is.

  • CPAN Testers commented on CPAN Testers & pre-requisite reporting

    Your assumption that there would be virtually no changes after the Metabase is incorrect. There would be several. Again we've had this discussion before and as Toby also points out, the problem dependency may be nothing to do with the distribution that is a development release. It is not a trivial task to check this in the client either.

    My intention, as Ether notes, is to use the Admin site to allow others to correctly attribute the report to the offending module. It's a slightlymore long-winded and manual process, but it will be more consistent when re-attributing reports.

  • Peter Rabbitson commented on CPAN Testers & pre-requisite reporting

    I still maintain that "oh, changing the set of test tags beyond the current 4 is too hard" is a dead-end strategy. In order to remain relevant the cpantesters infrastructure must allow for extra test-type additions anyway - the current set is too limited.

    In addition I do not believe (given I know and admire the skill of everyone involved) that the current stack is written so badly, that it will be a monumental effort to allow for "super-namespacing" of the test results. At worst it should be a couple day slog, perfect for a hackathon... if there only was an upcoming one ;)
