Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

CPAN Testers

[ #32581 ]

The new CPAN Testers is now live. Apart from the cool YUI layout, there's also a new bar report that shows passes and failures for all the releases - see HTML-Widget for example.

You'll only get a cool new page if a new tester result comes through and we hope to get to point to it soon.

  • Congrats on the new design!

    I have one small favor to ask: could you please include CPAN::Reporter [] in the list of ways to get involved? It makes for a very quick and painless way that people can start contributing.

  • Well done :)

    And you also fixed the sorting! I love it :)

    You might also want to mention that CPAN::YACSmoke is a good way to get involved in cpantesters: []

  • This looks great! I will hold off on making any feature requests, just so I can devote this message to: thanks for making this so much better. I look forward to fixing bugs found by testers...
  • I had to wonder why everyone was raving at the awful scrunched up design I saw. Until I tried it on Windows and can see why now. I was using Ubuntu (Edgy)'s version of Firefox ( on my Linux box, so you might want to check browser compatibility.

    My only real design comment would be to ask why you've done the layout different between authors and distributions. I prefer the distribution listings as the dashed line and headings make each section standout a lot more.

    Overall though, definitely a job well

    • Whatever you changed, it worked :) The pages render great on my Ubuntu box in Firefox, excellent job.
      • I didn't do anything ;-)
        • Bizarre! I didn't restart the browser, just refreshed the page this morning and all of a sudden all the nice colours and spacing magically appeared :)
