in reply to Announcing: Pinto

I saw your presentation on Pinto to the Los Angeles Perl Mongers, and thought it was great. I'm glad to see it's matured to the point that you're comfortable making a more official announcement. It seems like a good solution to several issues I've been dealing with lately, in fact.

Your "presentation" link didn't work for me; I had to search within the yapc na 2012 channel to find the presentation.

One barrier to entry is the dependency chain itself (ironically). When I first saw your Perl Mongers presentation, I went to install it and found more than one item in the dependency list that wouldn't install without force. This time it's DateTime, which fails on t/30future-tz.t, test 7: "Make sure we can add 750 years worth of days in Europe/London time zone". (Things are not looking good for London; somewhere between now and 750 years from now an untold disaster will warp their time fabric.) When I force the install of that module all is ok (at least from the comfort of Los Angeles TZ ;).

Update: For the record, this is on Ubuntu 12.04LTS with a perlbrew 64-bit build of Perl 5.16.1.

    That's not likely to change. I'm just not smart enough to reinvent the bits that it depends on :)

    However, I have been toying with the idea of a hosted service built on Pinto. Imagine GitHub, but with repositories of Perl module distributions rather than repositories of source code files.

      You could always use http://www.citrusperl.com/ , install all the prerequisites, and create a New Binary Distribution called PintoShaddock :)
