  • I'm glad someone is coming out and saying it. I still don't [willingly] use M::B to this day because all of the bug/feature/change traffic on it makes me nervous. I know M::B is better than EU::MM. I know I should use it. But everytime I read about issues like this, I always head back to EU::MM because it just works for my needs, and I already have a level of predictibility with it. Add on top of that the fact that Catalyst switched from M::B to Module::Install and all of the app upgrade issues that came

      You should look at the code for MakeMaker sometime. I stopped using it after I had to understand it enough to write tests for the thing.

      I'm sorry if you (the general, non-specific pronoun) don't like my installer, but if you're going to punish me in test reports for using it, I think you (again, non-specific) ought to offer to maintain a comparable installer for me. It has to be at least as fast and simple as if I were to maintain it myself with my preferred system.

      (Want more fun? Just try explaining how to write Module::Build::TestReporter [cpan.org] with MakeMaker. "Okay, first create a new parent class called MY from which MakeMaker can inherit....")
