in reply to RFC: Continuous Integration (CI) for your CPAN modules (for free!)

Very nice write up. I hope others adopt this style as well. I do have a couple of comments however.

The first is that your travis.yml is very involved and perhaps a simpler example is less daunting up front. For example, this is what i tend to use

language: perl before_install: - cpanm --notest Test::Pod Test::Pod::Coverage #other dependencie +s you have perl: - "5.22" - "5.18" - "5.14" - "5.8"
Travi-CI tends to allocate 4 workers at a time, so specifying more than 4 Perls will significantly increase the time it takes to complete the entire job. Just something to consider. More here:, but i have tried none of those examples. I am quite happy with the amount of time it takes, this is a free service after all. :)

The second comment i have regards the adding of badges to POD. I do not recommend this. Instead I recommend adding any and all badges to your Github readme file and specify the Github repository in your distribution's Makefile:

META_ADD => { resources => { homepage => ', repository => '', }, }
... or your Build file. Consult the docs for more. The reason i say not to put build badges inside your CPAN distros is because they reflect the state of the Github repo, not the distro on CPAN. You can also add a badge to your Github readme file that points to your (already registered) CPAN module. :)
