If you are using Test::Perl::Critic, please be sure to make the tests only run if some environment variable such as RELEASE_TESTING is set. There are a couple of reasons for this.

First, Perl::Critic takes time, and what it tests is not likely to actually change from the time you test your release to the time it gets on a user's system. So there's no good reason to tie up user install time testing what cannot have changed since you built the distribution.

Second, it is possible that others have a global Perl::Critic config file set that alter what Perl::Critic looks for. You could discover your tests are suddenly failing on those user's systems, not because the code has changed, but because the test's behavior has changed. Conversely, if you have your own .perlcriticrc, and if it doesn't ship with the distribution, then what you are testing will again be different from what the tests do on a typical user's system.

For these reasons it's wise to not cause a test suite failure based on Test::Perl::Critic running on user's systems. The best approach is to only run it when you are preparing a release.
