Do cpantesters still send out FAIL notifications ?

syphilis has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi,

It used to be that whenever a cpantester detected a FAIL in the test suite of one of my modules, I would receive a polite email informing me of this mishap.
But not any more.
Have they stopped sending those notifications ? ... or have I merely fallen through some crack that I could (and maybe should) repair ?

(OTOH , I have enjoyed the opportunity to strut about wearing my "How Brilliant Am I !!" T-shirt ;-)

Cheers,
Rob

    The last one I can find was from late June, so they were still going out then.

    Maybe someone like perlancar with a boatload of dists will be able to chime in with a more authoritative report.

      The last "CPAN Testers Daily Summary Report" email I got from CPAN Testers was dated Aug 7, 2023, more than 5 months ago. But up until recently Slaven and Andreas still from time to time kindly submit RT tickets for my distributions, usually because some tests are failing. So I assume they still get/read failure reports.

        Yes, I've received an RT ticket from Slaven on a few occasions - even going back to when I was receiving tester reports.
        But just last week a report from cpantesters turned up in relation to a recent CPAN upload that recorded 4 FAIL reports.
        Nothing since ... but I think there haven't been any failures since then,

        Cheers,
        Rob

    I've received one this morning for AI::Embedding!

    So, yes...the emails are still sent...

    I've certainly had one not too long ago...months rather than years but I can't be more certain than that.

    But I didn't get one for the fail that prompted Outlier test fail
    or if I did, I missed the email which is entirely possible...

      I'm definitely thinking months rather than years ... I reckon probably about September last year, but I don't know how I could check that.
      I do know that there have been plenty of test failures since then for which I have received no notification.

      It would be a pity if they've done away with that service.
      However, it seems that their matrix is now more reachable - which is definitely a step in the right direction.
      (I've had some really frustrating times in the past trying to access the matrix, but lately it has been quite good.)

      Cheers,
      Rob
