I'm Andy Lester, and I like to test stuff. I also write for the Perl Journal, and do tech edits on books. Sometimes I write code, too.

  • I notice that the list still includes some core modules (CPAN, Data::Dumper and more). Wasn't the original intention not to include core modules as they already have their tests in the core?
    • No, the original intention was not to include core modules because it's more of a hassle to get tests integrated into the core than into a module distributed to CPAN. However, I realize that in the case of a dual-life module like Time::HiRes or Test::Harness, it's no harder for the hoplites to integrate those changes, because they still go through the module's owner first anyway.


      • Eh? I don't remember it being a hassle to get tests into the core. We like tests.

        • It's a hassle for a newcomer unfamiliar with Perl and p5p workings, I think. I think it's easier to have them send patches to a module author.

          Remember, one of my goals here is to have newer contributors involved, and they may not have the years of experience and accumulated knowledge.
