in reply to Become a CPAN Tester with CPAN::Reporter

I will certainly give this a go on my home linux rig. Does it need to have a working MTA? That bit me the last time I attempted to do this.

I have a "virgin perl" 5.8.8 environment and a blead perl 5.9.4 that I created specially for the purpose.

    It relies on Test::Reporter, but I think that if you have Net::SMTP, it will use that and make a direct connection to the perl.org mail servers. If your ISP firewalls outgoing email, you'll need to set a CPAN::Reporter configuration option to point to your ISP's mail server instead.

    Please give it a try and let me know if that works for you.

      I've discovered that you're missing a dependency on Module::Build. My virgin perl did not have this installed, and tests t/5*_test_report_* died. Once Module::Build is installed, the problem goes away.

        Those tests are supposed to skip sections if Module::Build isn't installed. I'll double check it. If you still have it, could you please email your test output to dagolden (at) cpan (dot) org?

        Update: the tests do skip, but the skip count was wrong as I'd added tests since creating the skip block. Fixed in 0.34, which is on its way to CPAN now. Thanks for finding that bug.
