    If anyone has got some time (rather than hardware) to contribute and would like to do so by rolling virtual test images of various perl platforms (rather than physical boxes of various perl platforms) please drop by irc.perl.org #pita and help us work on CPAN Testers 2.0 (ugh).

    I'm particularly interested in talking to someone who can set up operating systems to have multiple versions of perl installed on it.
    • Hi, Maybe i'm missing something - it all seems too easy, if you could shine a torch on my ignorance it would be much appreciatted?

      For a few years now i've been religously adding new users to my linux box when a new project comes along - after which I install into the new home dir ( as the user ) apache, mod_perl, perl etc before beginning any work. It keeps the whole thing clean and is pretty pain free, and its pretty simple too. I've only been using one version of perl in all the different areas, but unless there is somekind of prereq hell I've managed to be lucky enough to avoid I wouldn't imagine it to be too difficult to set up different versions.
