Maybe we could also have automatic ++ing of nodes after a certain time. Now that we have the surcease of painful nodes, most nodes that would be --'ed are just getting considered and eaten. So, we can assume that, because a node exists for (a week| a month| a year) it is still quality and worth of ++ing.

Seriously though, I don't understand why people neurose over the idea of being --'ed. I don't think that (most) people will maliciously -- old posts as a vendetta, and if they do, so what? I'd rather have someone -- an old post because it's an old worthless post rather than taking that ability away from them.

    I'd have to agree. Stupid and useless posts are stupid and useless posts regardless of age. -- them as you see fit. There's no point in SuperSearch digging up useless posts with no content or purpose.

    It would seem, though, that NodeReaper will take the dead and the mortally wounded unto salvation, such that their misery is ended and they can be downvoted no longer. Isn't that good enough?

[stevieb]: heh, yeah, sorry. This is integration testing for certain. In fact, it's even Continuous Integration ;)
[stevieb]: Obviously, Travis CI just won't cut it for these distributions...
[stevieb]: I went on my merry way writing a cross-platform, network-aware system that works across Perlbrew and Berrybrew systems and runs unit tests for Perl dists on all installed versions, with the ability to manage *brew commands themselves
[stevieb]: That worked out exceptionally well, as when I started that project, I hadn't delved into hardware development yet.
[stevieb]: found a issue in MetaCPAN::Client though today for my revdep tests. At least I think it's an issue
