CPAN::Reporter has had over 20 releases since I first (0=?node_id=569845 ;; 1=CPAN.pm adds support for CPAN::Reporter ;; 2=) it here on August 26. Now anyone with an up-to-date CPAN.pm can contribute to CPAN Testers -- no smoke server needed.
Some of the major developments since August:
- Full CPAN.pm support since version 1.88; CPAN::Reporter added to Bundle::CPANxxl
- Added interactive configuration direct from CPAN.pm with: 'o conf init test_report'
- Added customization of action prompt defaults based on the test report grade. E.g., CC author on FAIL, but not otherwise
- Distributions that fail tests but are missing prerequisites are marked as NA instead of FAIL
- Test report includes prerequisite versions, environment variables, special Perl variables, and installed versions of the toolchain (e.g. ExtUtils::MakeMaker)
- Added support for old style "test.pl" files
Becoming a CPAN Tester with CPAN::Reporter is easy. From the CPAN shell prompt:
cpan> install CPAN::Reporter
cpan> reload cpan
cpan> o conf init test_report
cpan> o conf commit
Future development work on CPAN::Reporter will include better handling for interrupted tests and better integration with CPAN.pm to be able to report failures in Makefile.PL and "make" even before tests are run.
