Attached to: Test::Harness Dropping Support For 5.5

Considering I couldn't get a modern Test::Harness to install on 5.5 recently, mainly because of other parts of the toolchain being dependencies.

As mentioned in Dave Golden's journal I have hacked up a revised version of CPANPLUS::Dist::Build and uploaded to CPAN.

Happy, happy, joy, joy.

  Journal: CPANPLUS in a box on 2009.01.09 6:04

For a while now CPANPLUS has shipped with a very cool feature called cpanp-boxed

cpanp-boxed will let an individual use CPANPLUS from it's distribution directory without having to install it or to use CPANPLUS to boot-strap install itself and it's dependencies.

I think this is rather groovey

There is a developer release of CPANPLUS::YACSmoke available on CPAN. If you are a CPAN Tester using CPANPLUS to smoke test then can you give it a go.

It has been tested against both the current release 0.84 and current development release 0.85_04 of CPANPLUS without any problems

Subject pretty much says it all. My MX and the perl.org MX have had a falling out. Now all I get is this:

  CPAN Testers BOF at YAPC::EU 2008 on 2008.08.01 10:34 BinGOs

Submitted by BinGOs on 2008.08.01 10:34

YAPCs are always a good opportunity to meet other perl users. As the organisers of this year's YAPC::EU in Copenhagen have been good enough to allow me to do a talk on CPAN Testing, Barbie and myself will be arranging a CPAN Testers Birds of Feather (BOF) session.

Barbie's original announcement:

This BOF is for anyone who is or wants to be a CPAN Tester. A chance to air any thoughts for improving CPAN testing and highlight any common pitfalls experienced by current testers. Also a chance for testers and authors to meet face to face, if they haven't already done so. Any contributions to improve the http://cpantest.grango.org/ are also welcome. I would also like to take this opportunity to get group photo of all the CPAN Testers attending. Last year we had http://perl.grango.org/images/dscf9239.jpg, so please come along and get your face on the front page of the http://perl.grango.org/ site :)

This will very likely be at the end of the first day of the conference, ie. the Wednesday.

If you are attending YAPC::EU and are interested in CPAN Testing, please add your name to the wiki page
