Testing results, Perl and CPAN modul availability

[ #32981 ]
So I would like to have cross platform report on CPAN module availability

  • this [] what you're after?


    • I think this is more or less the same as the one I generated here []. I send a patch to Acme to integrate it into CPAN Testers []. These are generated based on the test reports. Such as your, I think.

      What I am looking for right now is the list of modules already provided by the distribution such as this page for Ubuntu Dapper [] but for other distros and in the opposite direction too. (So a module author could look up her modules to see which distro carries it already (and which version of her module is supplied)

      • Listing the distros per instance is my next task. I only took a look at the code this morning, so didn't get the time to add that bit in. I want to tidy it up a bit, as I think all the patched versions of perl should really apply to just one version of perl. Then once that's sorted each value will be a click thru to list all the distros that passed for that version of perl on the specific platform.

        • IMHO it would be better to integrate all this into CPAN::WWW::Testers of Acme that generates [] so that all this information shows up on one site nicely interconnected. Along with your other cpan tester related statistics.

          We might even try to bribe him to give us access to the machine we can also update it. What do you think?

          I can send you my patch to v0.32 of the above module that generates those statistics. I am sure you can improve on them a lot.

          • Because it's a completely different codebase, the parsing for the statistics is different (e.g. CPAN::WWW::Testers ignores the PAUSE uploads) and the site generation bears no resemblance, I don't see any point trying to merge them.

            To my mind the two sites serve different purposes. Acme's sites is more useful to authors and users of specific modules, whereas mine looks at a much bigger picture.

            Plus CWT requires no manual intevention, whereas the stats site requires manual work to verify the tester addresse
