the failed 500 in the error message suggest that there is a problem at ActiveStates server. Wait a few minutes and try again.

    I saw this type of behaviour a few years ago in the Middle East. In my case it came from a misapplied security filter. A firewall was "modifing" all fetched pages to remove any JavaScript, as a result the XML from ActiveState was being totally destroyed and the symptom was an apparently dead ActiveStates server. In my case no amount of waiting would have made the server work.

    The way I proved this to myself was to fetch some of the ActiveState XML pages by hand so that I could see that what was returned was invalid. I was tempted to either grab the XML, edit it to fix the issue and set up a fake PPM server or to beat the supplier around the head. However, I was only behind this badly configured system for a few days, so my final fix was to wait until I could bybass the firewall.

[erix]: then you might as well send that patch to the DBIC guys :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, I just found that it has no documentation at all on how to circumvent/ eliminate "1+n SELECTs" by building a local hash... I guess I have to make ->has_many do the hash lookup instead of doing the SQL query. But as the problem ...
[Corion]: ... has only manifested itself so far through the puzzled questions of other bystanders, I won't go deeper at this time. But the DBIx::Class documentation could well do with a document on how to make "it" (that is, ORMs in general) faster ;)
[Corion]: I find that DBIx::Class, like most ORMs makes things easy until they become performance critical and then makes it horribly hard to change things because the design is highly inflexible if you don't already know about the problems of 1+n :-/
