All the Perl that's Practical to Extract and Report
Sunday October 20, 2002
I just uploaded to the CPAN a script of mine, CPAN-perlpatch2svn. Soon on your nearest CPAN mirror. It's intended to populate a Subversion repository with bleadperl patches. It's also (to my knowledge) the first code on CPAN that deals with Subversion (that's why I choose to put it on CPAN instead of keeping it on my website : if it can be found via the search interface, it may be useful in the future to other module authors. Code reuse, yay.)
There are, however, a couple of annoyances when using a Subversion working copy that holds the perl sources :
As of bleadperl @18039, the installation process of perl corrupts the
Subversion working copy, because it creates spurious .svn directories.
Similarly, make distclean removes too much files, including a few files
in the .svn directories, thus corrupting the working copy.
This means that I'll have to patch MakeMaker and the makefiles. Investigating...
