in reply to Question regarding Perl Monks User Search and Q&A postings

For some reason QA nodes have an author_user of "QandAEditors" instead of the handle of the person who actually posted. This is dealt with differently on different pages, which leads to the inconsistancies that you've noticed.

The XML interface can help you verify this: View the source on this query to see the data for a normal node posted by you. Notice that you are the author_user. Compare that to the info for a Q&A post where the author_user is "QandAEditors" instead of an actual username.

[ambrus]: choroba: heh heh... I have such a doc bug report somewhere. fixed by now.
[Corion]: Once upon a time I had automatic tests for checking the synopsis, but I stopped doing that because the setup was too fragile on CPAN testers for extracting code from the SYNOPSIS.
[Corion]: Maybe I should move the extraction of the code from the SYNOPSIS section into the author tests, or something like that...
[choroba]: Corion Sounds reasonable
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah - I basically have the same for regenerating README and README.mkdown already, except that I do that in Makefile.PL, but I guess one or the other thing should somehow work ;)
[ambrus]: was this bug: https://rt.cpan. org/Public/Bug/ Display.html?id= 59814
[Corion]: ambrus: Oh - that one would be much harder to automate... The SYNOPSIS section should mostly be a runnable program IMO, but I write only small snippets in my documentation for single functions/methods, and creating the appropriate environment for ...
[Corion]: ... those in an automated fashion seems somewhat hard to me. Although it should do wonders for the test coverage ;)
