Ummm?!

[ #8167 ]
Someone just sent me a rather long rant complaining that Net::DNS requires parrot. Logic as follows:
  1. Net::DNS requires Test::More
  2. If you search for Test::More on search.cpan.org, the 8th result (also the result directly below the correct result) is parrot.
  3. Therefore, Net::DNS requires parrot.

With some pride, I announce that I have released the first mainstream module for perl6. :-D

  • I've been baffled (albeit briefly) by that one before. It's annoying trying to find the canonical origin of a module when so many include it.

    I guess that answer is to always use CPAN.pm which has more smarts, but I don't think that's always possible. I know I went through a long period of hating CPAN. I still dislike the fact that it doesn't integrate with packaging systems.

    • It is a problem, the funny part to this is that of all the options, the person picked parrot. Perhaps Graham could make search list the module in the module list first? *shrug*
