  • Out of curiosity, how often is CPANTS updated (ideally)?

    • Currently, once a week (in the night from saturday to sunday CET). CPANTS now re-examines all of CPAN in each run, which takes ~4-5 hours.

      As soon as I manage to set up incremental testing (only test newly released dists), the interval will go up to daily.

        Just a quick note...

        I know that when a module changes ownership it usually gets a new release. But that's "usually", so I thought I'd point out the situation where two users each have a module and one of them uses the other one; the module using the other one gets tranfered to the other user, who now has the two modules but hasn't released a new version of the one he just got. And boom, he still gets a point from another module using one of his, despite the fact that the other module is now his own :-)

        I just thought I'd mention this little possible glitch :-) If it'd be a glitch at all, because YMMV, of course, and you may want to consider the module still belonging to the other user, since the new owner hadn't actually released anything new in it and this way you'd have less trouble :-)
