Posted A pre-release of Pod::Readme is available on CPAN to Robert Rothenberg
Last month, I mentioned that I was rewriting Pod::Readme.…
Commented on Test::More has lots of crazy new development that's breaking my modules
As a module author, I also don't want to see fails for spurious reasons for my modules. But when I'm choosing a module to use, I look closely at the failures to see why they are failing before deciding not...
Commented on Rewriting Pod::Readme
Thanks for the feedback. @Ether: I've thought of using Moo, but I am using traits and MooseX::Object::Pluggable to load plugin-roles. I'm unsure how to do that using Moo....
Posted Rewriting Pod::Readme to Robert Rothenberg
Back in 2005, I wrote Pod::Readme. It languished a bit, and David Precious took over maintainership around 2010.
The core idea for this is that README files contain redundant information that is already in the POD, but not everything in th…

Basically, it's a module that allows you to define a module with exportable constants that:
- can be read-only scalars, arrays, or hashes (as well as the standard constant…

Test::More has lots of crazy new development that's breaking my modules
> I don't think CPAN Testers is doing the right thing by using broken Test::More's that aren't available for normal installations.
I strongly disagree. What if these Test::More changes *were* production ready? Receiving these failing reports, before Test::More sees a stable release, would be vital to identifying issues with your code, so you have a chance to fix it before that stable release and everyone is affected. The smokers can't know whether this trial is nearing production readiness or not.
CPAN test reports are my best indicator of whether my code is working for eve…
