  • I just want to clarify the changes to CPAN/CPAN::Reporter.

    CPAN::Reporter does not check for a "missing library" string as CPANPLUS does, as I am not convinced that this is a robust approach. The actual ExtUtils::MakeMaker string includes the phrase "(probably harmless)" -- which implies that a harmless missing library could cause a legitimate test failure to be discarded, which we don't want.

    Instead, the change to CPAN fixes a bug where CPAN continued to try to make even if a Makefile was never create

    • Thanks for the clarification David, and EvilDave++ for doing all the work on Devel::CheckOS.
