  • Just a nit -- CPAN::Reporter isn't bundled with Strawberry, but it does install cleanly, which is very nice for harassing -- (ahem!) I mean informing -- authors when their modules do not test cleanly on Windows.

    Otherwise, thank you very much for your kind words about Strawberry.

    • Ah - thanks for the correction David. I think you should bundle CPAN::Reporter though :)
      • That's a good suggestion. Alias declared himself the pumpking for the next release, so hopefully he'll read this and comment.

        • Indeed I shall be bundling more development-style modules into the next release, and CPAN::Reporter would probably be a good addition.

          The only downside is that it does not auto-configure (yet) so as I understand it, I'd need to make people configure it?
          • A config file could be written to .cpanreporter/config.ini in the "My Documents" folder -- the sticky part will be the email address of the sender.

            It might be possible to make some changes so there is some better prompting -- i.e. if no config file is found to ask about starting to configure instead of just warning about it.

            • Can't you just loop through the Outlook address book and pick one at random? It's a very popular technique with virus writers :)
              • That or I suppose we could go with a specific email address intended to mean "unknown".
