Summary Report for the 2009 QA Hackathon

[ #38727 ]

These are the summary notes for the work completed during the 2009 QA Hackathon

The summary reports/talks were videoed, and the video should appear somewhere in a little while. But in the mean time, here's the short version.

* Smolder was converted by Michael to be compatible with the CPAN and was released to the CPAN for the first time.

* JJ completed an initial release of Perldoc::Server

* configure_requires was completed by Jos and signed off by Adam, which completes the entire configure_requires project once the prod release is synced to core.

* A dev-quality MYMETA.yml implementation was completed by Andreas, Jos, Adam and David

* Programmatic access to the CPAN Uploads data is now available via ORDB::CPANUploads

* The CPAN Testers websites now update from PAUSE within a few minutes of an upload, thanks to a new magic fast-sync process created by Andreas.

* The Metabase implementation has progressed, powered by Dave and Ricardo
        - There is a new much more-detailed CPAN Testers report format
        - Fact management and user profiles (and registration) has been implemented
        - Test::Reporter is being upgraded to a full CPAN Testers Client
        - Test::Reporter::Metabase has been created as a temporary stand-in in the mean time.

* The nested TAP implementation implementation was mostly completed
        - Test::More was upgraded to support nested TAP
        - Test::Class was upgraded to support nested TAP
        - Test::Harness is halfway to supporting nested TAP

* Colin and Schwern have started working on Test::Builder 2
        - Results will be a detailed object
        - Output will not be limited to TAP

* The TAP IETF Draft Standard is mostly completed and will be posted in the next few days

* CPANPLUS was improved to help it integrate better with smoke systems.

  • You left off that Tux released Config::Perl::V [], which provides structured information from 'perl -V' -- including things that aren't available from

    To clarify the CPAN Testers evolution, at least from the client perspective:

    Stage 1: Test::Reporter::Transport::Metabase will soon be available as a means to submit test reports to a CPAN Testers Metabase using existing clients (CPAN/CPAN::Reporter or CPANPLUS/CPAN::YACSmoke) that support Test::Reporter::Plugins. The reports will still be primari

  • but just thought I'd add them for completeness. I released 2 new modules Module::Build::TAPArchive and Module::Build::Smolder.
