... we did NOT backdoor dozens of your public Perl projects. Honest. Why would we want to do that?

There's more than a bit of wiggle room in that statement. Would PerlMonks.org code be considered a public project?

[Corion]: ... problem space than trying to cater to all versions of Pod::Parser(s)
[haukex]: I think you're right, I think Pod::Simple is the preferred parser now
[haukex]: But I was just using it as an author test anyway
[Corion]: haukex: Aaah - I thought you were still running these tests on every machine, but you only run these as author or Devel::Cover tests
[Corion]: haukex: Yeah, I think back then I used Test::Inline, which used a pod parser that was going through some changes and I didn't want to cater for all the various versions and thus stopped testing the Pod completely
[choroba]: I usually do this with presentations
[Corion]: But now I think statically (re)generating the Pod tests is a saner approach, and likely I'll regenerate the tests either in Makefile.PL or from xt/ but have them live below t/
[choroba]: I keep the snippets in files of their own, and use a Makefile to syntax highlight them and insert them into slides, while also running them and inserting the output if required
[Corion]: choroba: Ooooh - I didn't think of that! I write my presentations as POD and if it "roughly" looks like Perl code, I should also syntax-check that...
[haukex]: Yes sorry I don't run them all the time, my POD tests are only run as author tests (and are excluded when I'm using Devel::Cover)
