CPAN Testers Summary - April 2010 - Close To The Edge

A late and very short summary this month, as I was hoping to have a bit more news this time around. As David notes in his update, the work on the Metabase has been continuing, with some stress testing to ensure we can handle a high volumes of report submissions. There have been some upgrades to the code during the last month, as we have refined the APIs. Unfortunately we've hit a hurdle with the search API at the current time. Once we overcome this, then we should be in a good position to make the switch to fully support the Metabase submission system. It's been a long time coming, but we are getting close.

This month has also seen lesser fixes to the Reports website and Statistics websites, mostly to correctly reference the newer GUID identification system. Unfortunately a lot of attention has been taken up by the release of version 2 of the CPAN Meta Spec, which several of us involved with CT2.0 have also been involved with, particularly David Golden. Hopefully we'll have a longer summary next month, with many more details of progress.
