A CPAN module of mine (XML::Entities) depends on downloading entity definitions from a third party server (w3.org) upon build. Of course, this fails when the download times out. The result is that tests on CPANtesters fail even though the module as such works OK.
What do you think can be done about this? People get wrong impression that the module is broken but on the other hand, the install can fail any time (when w3.org are overloaded).
Do you have an advice?
