CPAN Testers RULE!
Late last evening I sent a development version of a Perl module to PAUSE. This module had had a bunch of work on it since the last release, including a change in the way
timelocal() were called.
The CPAN testers worked on it overnight, and this morning I had a brand-new shiny RT ticket in my inbox. Slaven Rezic (to give credit where it is due) had noticed and correctly diagnosed the problem. I fixed it, and tonight the CPAN testers are chewing on a new and hopefully better test release.
I credit Slaven, but credit is due to everyone in the testing infrastructure, because this is far from the first time they have pulled my fat out of the fire. Where else but Perl could this have happened?
Thanks, and kudos!
