testers.cpan.org is ass.

[ #31064 ]

testers.cpan.org is ass. Apparently failing reports have been posted there but no has been cc:ing me on any of them and I had no idea stuff wasn't working. Or maybe gmail thought every test report was spam. I guess it's possible.

No RT tickets either.

*grumble*!

  • if there was no cpan.testers whatsoever.
  • ... I'd just like an "AUTHOR" page like several other sites have added, so I can see in a single view which modules have failing tests.
    • You mean something like http://cpantesters.perl.org/author/ADAMK.html [perl.org]? Or you really need to see only modules with failing tests from among your zillion modules?
      • Hey, that's actually kind of neat. It's too bad it only shows the most recent version of each distribution. I think. I just want to ask oodles of that static page like "Show me only the most recent" for some distributions and "Show me all the failures, regardless" for others.

        Oh well.
      • For me, yes that page is annoyingly long and non-trivial to monitor.

        I'd like either a green/red status page type thing, like CPANTs, or really now you mention it just a filter on that page, to only show the ones that are failing.

        You know, I bet that a simple JavaScript enhancement to that page would be able to deal with this problem pretty easily, rather than generating a zillion more pages.
