  • POE has a "phone home" script that can be run in the top level directory that uploads the results of "make test" including platform.

    Just put a note in your Makefile.PL/Build.PL to say "please help me by uploading your make test to my site using ProggyX". Steal the code from POE.

  • Last week there was a discussion [] on Perlmonks about this very topic.
    • after looking through the discussion, I would think that approaching some of the major mirrors would be a better solution than 'phone home'.

      Even a handful of mirrors would be able to provide some kind of a picture if they collected and shared statistics.

      opt-in and manual phoning home wouldn't really work and opt-out isn't an acceptable solution.
