in reply to Private tests - How to setup?

Backing up your assumption and kyle's comment, for the behavior you're describing (skipping pod coverage tests, etc.), the current recommended practice is to check an environment variable, specifically $ENV{RELEASE_TESTING} and skip_all() based on whether it's true/false. I say 'current recommended practice' because there is no real standard, AFAIK.

I used to use $ENV{AUTHOR_TESTING} in my distributions but $ENV{RELEASE_TESTING} is the hot new thing decided upon during the Oslo QA Hackathon.

Update: For quick .t examples, see the Oslo QA Hackathon 2008/Achievements wiki page.
