CPAN::Reporter has had over 20 releases since I first announced it here on August 26. Now anyone with an up-to-date can contribute to CPAN Testers -- no smoke server needed.

Some of the major developments since August:

  • Full support since version 1.88; CPAN::Reporter added to Bundle::CPANxxl
  • Added interactive configuration direct from 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 "" 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 to be able to report failures in Makefile.PL and "make" even before tests are run.

Come be a CPAN Tester today!
