  • Commented on Let's top git.io
    I've modified my automated script also to commit with an email address that will cease to contribute to contribution stats. If I apply this to the whole repo retroactively it should take me down from 22k contributions to around 6k....
  • Commented on What is your release process?
    I have a few oddities, and I do things MyWay™, but I have a few tricks I don't see employed often which I find incredibly useful for a number of reasons. The most important to me, is the [Git::CommitBuild] plugin...
  • Commented on The Four Major Problems with CPAN
    I think it would be "nice" to have something at least somewhat visible via the metacpan ui, but it definitely has to be "external" data to classes, data provided by user submission / crowd sourcing / data analysis , NOT...
  • Commented on Pumpkin Perl - Redux
    I definitely prefer "pumpkin" and "pumpkin perl" over "perli". "perli" is just begging to increase the current rate at which people associate "perl" with "peril". Can't say I'm fond with that. After discussion with MST, it appears to me we're...
  • Commented on Pumpkin Perl - Redux
    just wait, harry potter references are just around the corner. pumpkinbrew init pumpkinbrew abracadabra wand -v Image::Magick...
  • Commented on Pumpkin Perl - Redux
    I have some thoughts, but they're not really "well, if we do x then we have to do y, z etc as well", more "there are many things y which are hard to get away with doing without doing x"....
  • Commented on Bringing Perl5 to GitHub
    I feel the real let-down of github issues is its very weak on metadata vs RT. Metadata tools are limited to tagging and milestones, and thats basically it, and for seriously large projects this gets seriously out of hand. ie:...
  • Commented on Visually graphing module dependencies
    Something else you may want to consider as a feature: Classifying dependencies by type, and augmenting the graph to suit, ie: Build/Configure/Runtime/Test/Develop dependencies And "Suggested/Recommended/Required" subsets of those dependencies. You could opt to include these in the depgraph, and colour/pattern...

    Package::Strictures on metacpan Design goals

  • Posted Musing on Perl::Critic config to KENTNL

    I've been exploring the Perl::Critic configuration file somewhat, and something struck me as unusual.

    It seems fine for using for the usecase of "inherit some predefined set of rules and apply them selectively", which works fine if you ju…

  • Commented on Please Ensure ABSTRACT and LICENSE fields in your META.yml/json
    Yeah, actually, I was aware of this problem with the CPANdeps service months ago, possibly even years ago. Emitting only YAML is the default behaviour if you're using the basic (@Basic) bundle. Users can freely elect to not generate YAML,...
  • Posted Please Ensure ABSTRACT and LICENSE fields in your META.yml/json to KENTNL

    I've been opening quite a few bugs lately for distributions failing these 2 criteria, so, I figured I'd save everyone some effort and unify it cohesively.

    Reason

    While it may seem a trivial squabble, ABSTRACT and LICENSE…

  • Commented on Looking up the location of an IP address
    "Web site localisation: automatically redirecting the user to the best default site, perhaps changing the language in the process." I should point out if it wasn't already obvious that you should never infer language by source IP's country code. Its...
