CPAN.pm adds support for CPAN::Reporterby xdg (Monsignor)
|on Aug 27, 2006 at 00:09 UTC||Need Help??|
As of version 1.87_57, CPAN.pm has support for CPAN::Reporter. I wrote about this project recently in "Bringing Test::Reporter to CPAN.pm". At that time, one needed to install a subversion branch of CPAN.pm to use CPAN::Reporter. Now, it's easy to set up directly from the CPAN shell:
If you're not prompted to adjust your CPAN configuration settings -- including enabling CPAN::Reporter -- you need to do it manually:
The first time CPAN::Reporter runs, it will create a default configuration file where you will need to put your email address, so just test CPAN::Reporter again to create the config file:
Set your email address in ~/.cpanreporter/config.ini (found in "My Documents" for Win32) and you're ready to contribute to CPAN Testers.
There are certainly still bugs to work out, but the more people who give it a try, the sooner the bugs will be found. So please give it a go.
