I finally got around to installing perlbrew, 4 flavors of perl and updating some modules for recent perls. I've been sending a lot of email test reports lately.
Last night I got the email from bitbucket about CPAN Testers 2.0 and the death of sending reports via email with wiki links/instructions on how to setup
This is all well and good, but it feels wrong to me. I use CPAN::Mini. The point of which is partly to have CPAN when you're not online. The same reason I use git. With SMTP emails I could just queue up test reports in the local postifx and they would get delivered later when I'm online.
Now, that's is no more. I'm forced to be online to send HTTP reports. Seems like a bad idea. NOw, the only thing I can do is toggle off reporting when I'm offline, which really means I'll hate doing that and just turn off reporting all together.
Why did reports via email have to go away?
