  • What is the system of which CPAN testers is a part?

    I don't think you are standing far enough back.

    (Fred Brooks in The Mythical Man-month on documentation: Start off at 50,000 feet and come in really slowly.)

    What is the function of CPAN testers?

    One size is not going to fit all. For example, Ben Bullock, the person said to have ruined the CPAN ratings feed, may be the kind of developer who needs to be hit with a heavy stick.

    Admittedly, that can be worked out in the future.
    The fact there is controversy suggests options are needed.

    Anyway, Kudos to the CPAN Testers!
