in reply to Installing Tests

The problem is that right now, we have no such thing as module tests. We have only distribution tests. A huge number of test suites contain a subset of tests that assume they are being run on an unpacked module distribution.

The Module::Build retest action mentioned above sounds like a good way of setting up an environment that respects this assumption for testing installed modules. That's at least a good first step...
