in reply to So much for Test::* :)

First off, thank you to David Landgren for remembering that Perlmonks is not the Test::More bug tracker and thinking to mention this issue to me. Bitching on Perlmonks might get you a work around, but it won't fix the underlying problem. The bug tracker is here: http://code.google.com/p/test-more/issues

This concludes my quasi-annual bitching at Perlmonks.

The issue at hand appears to be that MakeMaker only added manual glob expansion of tests in 6.27. I can't pre-expand them in the Makefile.PL else it will blow out the shell exec length limit on some platforms. In theory, I could have Test::More depend on MakeMaker 6.27 since there's no circularity. I'm not sure.

Anyhow, somebody report the bug.

    Perlmonks is not the Test::More bug tracker...

    Maybe not. But it is the place where mortals come looking for solutions to perl problems.

    You may not feel it worth your time to check by more than semi-annually, but maybe the thousands of perl users here don't have the time to go looking for wherever you've decided to hang out this month either.


    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
      First of all, the author who give code away for free have no obligation what so ever to find out where people might complain about bugs to the authors software.

      Second, if the thousands of perl users have time to hang out on perlmonks and bitch about code they didn't write, but apparently don't have the time to scroll to the bottom of the manual page to find out where to report bugs, or learn the authors email address, well, I won't feel any pity for them.

      And I know that the mentioned email address has been used by Schwern longer than Perlmonks exist.

        well, I won't feel any pity for them.
        But can you feel like keeping quiet? You don't always have to join in on self righteous rants to and project onto others ...

    Using Google Code might be a convenient way for you, as the module programmer, but it doesn't allow anonymous/no sign-up submission of bug reports. And as I don't want to be tracked by Google and hence have no Google Accounts (or cookies), this precludes me from reporting bugs to Google-hosted modules, like WWW::Mechanize and EU:MM. This is a bit unfortunate, but might explain why other people will submit bug reports here and on http://rt.cpan.org instead, where they can also be found by others in case the author is unresponsive.
