Re: I received a report that MCE is hanging for a CPAN smoke tester and possibly others

in reply to I received a report that MCE is hanging for a CPAN smoke tester and possibly others

Thanks to the CPAN tester by the name David Cantrell, he allowed me to log into his system using a test account.

Issue is resolved. I'm going to release an update. Inside Signal.pm, added writeable check -w '/dev/shm' $_tmp_dir_base = ($_use_dev_shm && -d '/dev/shm' && -w '/dev/shm') ? '/dev/shm' : '/tmp'; Also in test script, also added writeable check -w '/dev/shm' use_ok('MCE::Signal', qw( $tmp_dir -use_dev_shm )); if (! exists $ENV{TEMP} && -d '/dev/shm' && -w '/dev/shm') ...

I feel so terribly bad that MCE is causing smoke testing to hang out there. I'm thankful for David Cantrell who reported on the issue to me via an email.

Do any folks have stories where something like this such as stalling smoke testing? Oh, how I feel horrific at the moment. :(

MCE 1.103 should be up on CPAN momentarily.

Mario

    It happens. I once had a 'prompt' that wasn't supplying a valid default in non-interactive environments, and that was causing a stall. It's fixed now, and I learned something in the process:

    When a smoker sees your script causing their rig to hang, they add your module to a blacklist so that it doesn't get tested in the future. They're happy to remove it once you've got the problem fixed, but you will need to alert them to do so. Visit http://lists.perl.org and subscribe to cpan-testers-discuss@perl.org. Then send a message requesting that smokers begin testing your module again, starting with version XYZ. Explain that good behavior has been re-established, and request removal from their blacklists.

    The mailing list is low traffic, but it might not be inappropriate to follow up a week later mentioning the newfound success, and reminding any who haven't removed your module from their ban list to go ahead and do so.

      MCE-1.103 has been released on CPAN. Running cpan -t MCE is still pulling down 1.102. I will send a message to the list once I see MCE 1.103 being tested.

      Thanks for the helpful feedback Dave.
