  • I tried to install this a while ago and it failed. It looks like it is failing for most reporting installers. I tracked down my failure (please set up minicpan) to something that I predict will be common.

    CPAN::Mini expands ~ in its config to CPAN::Mini->__homedir during new, but CMW doesn't. That means it looks for files literally named ~, and fails to find them. With my config updated to use an absolute directory name, it worked.

    Obviously(?) I'd rather use ~, since it lets me share the config on machines where my homedir differs.
