	* from cpantesters-discuss

	05:04:06 <@ST47> Hey
	05:04:21 <@ST47> Anyone ever had a problem with the FTPstats.yml getting
	05:04:49 <@ST47> It keeps getting messed up and throwing a syntax error through
  YAML::Syck and throwing my smokers into a useless state
	06:28:45 <@ST47> Probably ran out of disk space mid-write...
	07:53:33 <@rafl> yeah, i've seen that.

	* Curtis Jewell reports failing tests that I overlooked on cpantesters.
	Seems to be that Expect-less systems fail some tests around push/pop on


	Nope, I can remove Expect and still pass all tests.

	He is stuck in the test "urllist empty" and then gets the fail for the
	test "reordering urllist". Skipping the "urllist empty" test when no
	Expect is installed will most probably "fix" this. I mean, we're fixing
	a test, not code.

	Nope. Was a whitespace bug, FIXED.

	* Acme::Badexample ($VERSION = do { $_++ while 1; return $_ };) breaks
	us. Could not get a stable solution from BSD::Resource. The problem was
	that when running the r command after a while the number of $SIG{XCPU}
	interrupts increased until finally the shell ended itself. Probably a
	bug somewhere else. Giving up at this state:

	* explicit option to prefer Archive::Tar over tar like suggested by

	explicit option for suppress readline!

	while being at readline: improve the wording "available" versus what
	Schwern suggested in https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=29862

	* reminder: Solaris tar cannot read tarballs with a path with more than
	100 bytes. Wolfram re-reported it today.

	https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=43813 was the first report.
	No, https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=40843

	MST suggested switching to tgz. Good idea.

	* git tags not exported. Why? Need to export the release tags. How?

	Do I actually have some? 

% git tag -l | tail

	But on the re-imported clone it ends with 1.9301

	git push --tags

	this is considered to dtrt. Can be checked visiting github and hovering
	over "all tags". According to
	http://blog.ashchan.com/archive/2008/06/30/tags-on-git/ at least.
	Problem with that is we have so many tags that we cannot scroll to the
	last in firefox.

2009-02-28  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* support deprecate.pm: Nick's plan seems to be that when Switch.pm is
	installed at


	then it is a second class citizen (because it came with perl) which
	warns when being loaded (due to deprecated.pm). But when it (the very
	same file) is installed from the CPAN it will live in a different
	location, say


	and then it will not warn about deprecate although the 'use deprecate'
	is in the file.

	The plan is to change CPAN.pm such that it installs from CPAN the very
	same version as the core version is. The difference should be recognized
	in the installation directory. So there shall be more magic in the INC

2009-01-18  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* 12:04:17 <@Alias> What I'm suggesting is that CPAN.pm can be embedded inside of 
                  larger programs
12:04:36 <@Alias> Or at least, it should be... it is extremely front-end 
                  centric in many places
12:05:22 <@Alias> Well, I can't actually load up CPAN.pm inside my process, as 
                  it's unsafe...
12:05:29 <@Alias> Because it does permalocks on files and stuff
12:05:36 <@Alias> And that goes all explodey
12:05:47 <@Alias> So I have to isolate each CPAN.pm call out in seperate 
12:06:20 <@Alias> Mostly via pip or "cpan Whatever" calls
12:07:04 <@klapperl> maybe we can get rid of the permalocks 
12:07:11 <@Alias> That would be nice
12:07:26 <@Alias> Also, to not apply the "don't try to reinstall" between 
                  user-land commands
12:08:12 <@Alias> But if we could flush some of this stuff out, it would be nice

	* shlomi-regex-utf8.pl needs a trick to kill itself after a second or
	two but without alarm because alarm doesn't kill the running regexp.
	Implemented with open..."|-". It uses alarm but in the parent and the
	child runs the regex.

	* S/SR/SRI/Catalyst-Plugin-HTML-Widget-1.1.tar.gz also calls cpanplus.

2008-11-02  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* somebody has successfully called cpanplus. I suspect it was
	Devel-ebug-HTTP-0.32. Or Module::Install::Catalyst. Whatever. I now have
	a process standing in
	/home/sand/.cpanplus/5.11.0/build/Catalyst-Runtime-5.7015 doing nothing
	having 6 pipes open and giving me no clue.

	Yes, Leon has Module::Install 0.60 in inc/. Arrrrrrrgh.

	A comment explains that the other versions did not load XS but fell back
	to the pure perl versions.

	It's not a trivial enough thing for me to simply fix it with an #if.

	Envariable CLASS_MOP_NO_XS? Fixes it, of course but does not help us much.

	* Sys-Syscall-0.22 hangs with 34066 (maint-5.8) during 02-sendfile. That
	makes Danga-Socket a DISCARD. Hmm. And then Perlbal hangs in its test.

	update 2008-06-23: 34074@bleadperl also hangs. 34053 too. Why did I not
	notice that? 33949 same. Aha: since Jun 15 there is process 9195 running
	occupying port 60001, owned by sand, parent is 1 and it has plenty
	children. I kill it and run the tests for 33949 again. Doesn't help. Now
	process 21113, testing some t/31-realworld.t has occupied port 60001.

	When I kill that then the Syscall test runs through.

	Whose bug is that? I'd say Sys::Syscall should fail more gracefully
	instead of just hanging.

	Retrying 34053: now Sys-Syscall-0.22/t/01-epoll.t fails! But at least
	without hanging. Same with 33949:

#   Failed test 'made temp listening socket'
#   at t/01-epoll.t line 61.
Can't use an undefined value as a symbol reference at t/01-epoll.t line 62.

	t/compat/test-harness-compat.t. It has 3.10 and M:B PASSes.

	Retrying with 33935 I see M:B PASS with T:H 3.10. Here T:H 3.11 PASSes
	and is now installed. Testing M:B again FAILs on its t/compat.t test.

	Retrying with what next? I would like to have a stock 5.8.8 as it comes
	with just the bare metal.... Not needed because AndyA apparently
	already knows (witnessed on #p5p)

	Workaround is to force install M:B.

	PERL_EXTUTILS_AUTOINSTALL=--skip leads to no questions asked.

	This is contrary to my expectations but as I'm not sure how
	Module::Install intends to behave I cannot really tell what's up.

	I filed a ticket against Module::Install to please provide some docs.

	Ok, came to the conclusion it is Test::Harness 3.0 related.


	* JSON::XS 2.2 is accused to need a binary search but I find it working

	* refresh investigations Data::Serializer

	The string that is brought from JSON via Data::Serializer to Crypt::CBC::encrypt is this:

  MAGIC = 0x85c4148
    MG_VIRTUAL = &PL_vtbl_utf8
    MG_TYPE = PERL_MAGIC_utf8(w)
    MG_LEN = 86

	So far no difference between 2396[56] in Crypt::CBC::crypt.

	The difference comes after 

	my @blocks = unpack("a$bs "x(int(length($self->{'buffer'})/$bs)) . "a*", $self->{'buffer'});

	These blocks are UTF8 since 23966 and were not so in 23965. Even with
	identical 7bit content this makes a difference later.

	After some more stepping down into the debugger I discover that somebody
	passes in an 8 character string to Blowfish and as it is UTF8 it is not
	8 bytes and Blowfish correctly dies. Seems to be JSON 2.07 related.
	33550 has no JSON installed. Is it that? Yes, maybe. But if I add JSON
	into the prereq mix I need to go much further back in history. 5.8.8 is
	OK, 24518 isn't and for perls before patch 25000 several things fall
	apart for different reasons.

	19173 cannot have JSON and subsequently Data::Serializer succeeds. So
	the test scripts must add JSON as explicit requirement.

	Now I find out that JSON does not run on 17968 either. So where did JSON
	2.07 stop? 17639 was the beginning of 5.9.0 the day after 5.8.0. And
	JSON 2.07 still did work with 17637.

This module requires Module::Build to install itself.
  Install Module::Build from CPAN? [y] 

	Aha. This is a special Module::Build silliness that calls CPAN
	recursively to install Module::Build::Compat. If you say no, it dies.

	update 2008-06-12 akoenig : what's the politically correct way to deal
	with this Makefile.PL nowadays? Large Module::Build::Compat thread at
	(just a random point in the middle), no conclusion there. My conclusion:
	install Module::Build really early and never see this discussion again.
	And if Module::Build cannot be built? When this happens it will be fixed
	within days or we can force install it and with 5.10 this is moot.

	Nope, changing mind again. If there is no reason to use "passthrough",
	they really should use "traditional", the only sane option when there is
	no special reason why you'd absolutely need Module::Build.

	to change. It costs a bit more CPU to sort the raw list of modules and
	the stupid thing is that we sort all, not only those that are being
	displayed finally. But that was always our goal: to display while we go
	so the user gets information as soon as possible. So now the list is
	sorted by the boolean "representative module" and on second order
	alphabetically. This means that after a first pass through the alphabet
	there is a second as in:

2008-02-03  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Frank Wiegand tells me stories about a bug in AUTOLOAD, version, or


	After installing a few thousand modules I can reproduce the failure.
	With both 1.9205 and current repository version. I must call 'reload
	index' and then 'r'. An 'r' when loading the data from Metadata

	Introducing more evals allows me to identify the modules that *trigger*
	the bug:


	I can then also step through the debugger in the AutoLoader which
	believes it is being called for:

	  DB<<11>> x $AUTOLOAD
0  'main::version::(""'

	Before we reach there we see a version object that looks like so:

	  DB<7> x $have
0  main::version=HASH(0xcc1b6ec)
   'original' => 'v1.0.0'
   'qv' => 1
   'version' => ARRAY(0xcc1b8e4)
      0  1
      1  0
      2  0

	and the debugger displays it as such, so apparently overloading is
	turned off somehow. Because if I construct such an object manually, it
	has overloading and the 'x $have' just does:

	  DB<16> x $have                                       
0  v1.0.0

	I now have it down to:

% /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/maint-5.8/p8tnrrm/perl-5.8.0@27144/bin/perl -Ilib -MCPAN -e '
use CPAN;
$TRACEMODULE = CPAN::Shell->expand('Module','Acme::MetaSyntactic::nethack');
$traceinst = $TRACEMODULE->inst_version;
print $traceinst;         

	Bombs immediately.

	My perllocal.pod has many candidates that might have changed something.

	A binary search would probably compare two perls and add one module
	after the other to the one that is still sane?

	stop,stop,stop Frank has found the culprit in Safe.pm 2.14.

	* Could it be a way to increase responsibility consciousness among MI
	users: report it as a bug when they distribute an old version? Makes
	little sense in the absence of a good recent version. Ajj, but Chroniton
	distributes 0.63 and that version seems to have not even a check for


	* A plan how we could protect the world from recursive usage. Inc the
	counter in the environment, display it, display in which directory we
	are, sleep for a long and increasing time, recommend the user to hit ^C
	and file a bug report. Display the process number. Display a countdown
	when we will continue. Display some sort of stack trace.

YAML::Tiny has a perfectly decent (informal, implicit) spec:

   1. if write_string is passed any Perl data structure consisting only of unmagical scalars, arrays and hashes, produce a spec-compliant YAML document representing it which can be parsed by YAML::Tiny or any more complete YAML parser;
   2. if write_string is passed any other Perl data structure, report an error saying so;
   3. if read_string is passed any spec-compliant YAML document, either
         1. parse that document correctly and return the corresponding Perl data structure, or
         2. report an error that this document is unsupported and a more complete parser should be used;
   4. if read_string is passed anything that isn't a spec-compliant YAML document, report an error saying so.

Any other behaviour, such as Adam has just fixed, is a bug. The only thing that might be useful is documentation of which cases get 3.1 and which get 3.2.

	I must write a RT ticket demanding these specs become part of the manpage.

	* Gtk2 has one single PASS. It fails on 27002 more or less the same way
	as with current 5.10. It fails on 23023 because Glib fails there. Maybe
	it would be interesting to find the place in history when Glib started
	working and then to run Gtk2 through that version. Just a binarysearch
	without --build should do.

----Output of .../p4eJlzo/perl-5.8.0@25733/bin/perl----

----EOF ($?='0')----
----Output of .../pdv4QaU/perl-5.8.0@25948/bin/perl----

----EOF ($?='0')----

	Perfect! The error summary with 25948 is shorter than the one with 5.10.

	Wohoo, on "look" the DISPLAY isn't set, of course. But then the test
	succeeds just fine:

DISPLAY=:121 make test TEST_FILES="t/GdkDisplayManager.t" TEST_VERBOSE=1
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pdv4QaU/perl-5.8.0@25948/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(1, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/GdkDisplayManager.t
ok 1 - The object isa Gtk2::Gdk::DisplayManager
ok 2
ok 3
ok 4 - The object isa Gtk2::Gdk::Device
All tests successful.
Files=1, Tests=4,  1 wallclock secs ( 0.02 usr  0.00 sys +  0.25 cusr  0.01 csys =  0.28 CPU)
Result: PASS

	But from 'test Gtk2' in the CPAN shell I get:

t/GdkDisplayManager..................The application 'GdkDisplayManager.t' lost its connection to the display :121.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
the application.
 Dubious, test returned 1 (wstat 256, 0x100)
 No subtests run 
t/GdkDnd.............................Gdk-WARNING **: Drops for GDK_DRAG_PROTO_ROOTWIN must be handled internally at t/GdkDnd.t line 100.

	So under CPAN shell the connection is lost, under 'make test' tests are
	succeeding? NO, under make test with arguments it works, under make test
	without arguments it fails. NO, it's once again RANDOM TEST RESULTS.

	When I run the command

	DISPLAY=:121 make test TEST_FILES="t/00.Gtk2.t t/01.GtkWindow.t t/02.GtkContainer.t t/Gdk.t t/GdkCairo.t t/GdkColor.t t/GdkCursor.t t/GdkDisplay.t t/GdkDisplayManager.t"

	several times then I get both a success and a failure. But the problem
	case is always the last one.

	AND there's another one that is even more annoying:

DISPLAY=:121 make test TEST_FILES=t/PangoLayout.t
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pdv4QaU/perl-5.8.0@25948/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/PangoLayout.t

 Failed 32/68 subtests 

	If I run it in the debugger it loses track of the debugger context
	completely and I cannot set a breakpoint. At least with 25948. So
	switching to current bleadperl I reach that line and see that the
	argument 23 is sent to some C lib and there it chokes. Not my area of

	I made the random test results a ticket:

	Was this the upgrade to libdb 4.6.19-1?

	Or the upgrade to 1.816?

   87854 2007-10-29 PMQS/DB_File-1.816.tar.gz

	Downgrading to 1.815 does not help. Downgrading to libdb 4.3 does not help either.

	My perl 32147 passes all tests, it has DB_File 1.816 already. I
	re-install 1.816 and re-test Encode::MAB2 and it succeeds again.

	My perl 32208 fails that test, it has 1.816 already. I re-install 1.816
	and re-test Encode::MAB2 and it fails again.

	Everything looks like a perl bug except that between 32202 and 32204
	nothing interesting happened.

	So does the downgrade of libdb only have an effect on newer perls? If
	so, then we will see 32177 and all others I build now succeed.

	I do not understand the reason for that. Reading the output of the perl
	compilation indicates that -ldb is called on the linker for DB_File.so.
	But why is there a -L/usr/local/lib? Dunno, but irrelevant because there
	is no libdb. And DB_File is a dynamic extension that gets stored into
	../../lib/auto/DB_File/DB_File.so. This then gets installed into

	that are broken because of pseudo hashes.

	Danga::Socket is only the lowest-level broken module. As long as it is
	not fixed we cannot even *see* the others (unless we read the source).

	* Test::Distribution is living in a strangely infected neighborhood. E.g. List::Tuples fails with

  /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
//hint// to see the cpan-testers results for installing this module, try:
  reports NKH/List-Tuples-0.03.tar.gz
Running make install
  make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
Failed during this command:
 ATOURBIN/rpm-build-perl-0.6.5.tar.gz         : make_test NO
 ZEV/Test-Dependencies-0.08.tar.gz            : make_test NO

 NKH/List-Tuples-0.03.tar.gz                  : make_test NO

	I need Cantrell's website for resolving. AHA: 0% chance of success:)

	Actually this example is exposing the problem that is in the system that
	failing modules with failing dependencies are not reported on
	cpantesters: Carp::Diagnostics has 2 fails but only 2 reports, not more.
	Probably because Test::Dependencies has so many fails. Downgrading to
	Test::Dependencies 0.07 also fails a test but "CPAN::Reporter: test
	results were not valid, Prerequisite missing."

	- B::PerlReq            ...missing.
	- PerlReq::Utils        ...missing.

	B::PerlReq missing in megainstall and a candidate for BBC. Fails with
	blead, succeeds with 5.8.8. Now also Test::Dependencies has a test.

	Update 2007-12-26 : Ticket to Test-Dependencies opened today
	http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=31906 But both
	Carp-Diagnostics and List-Tuples are by Nadim and make no sense as it
	seems and I cannot argue over it. Hrm. I can:

	* My release of 1.92_52 gives FAILs in 6 of *my* smokes. As the error
	messages mention File::Spec too I wonder if this has to do with a recent
	glitch that I have not yet understood.

	  116743 2007-05-22 KWILLIAMS/PathTools-3.25.tar.gz
    118823 2007-10-14 KWILLIAMS/PathTools-3.25_01.tar.gz

	So 31790 has only 3.25 according to the m command.

	And I get lots of these messages:

Use of uninitialized value $file in string ne at /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pNaGaP6/perl-5.8.0@31790/lib/5.9.5/File/Spec/Unix.pm line 312.
Use of uninitialized value $file in concatenation (.) or string at /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pNaGaP6/perl-5.8.0@31790/lib/5.9.5/File/Spec/Unix.pm line 320.

	And after that failing tests.

	The File/Spec.pm in current bleadperl 32269 is the same, but I do not
	get these errors. Maybe the r command gives us a clue? No, it spits too
	much output.

	So I try an "update" to svk 3446 which was before Rich's patches and the
	failures are the same. I should also try 3275. Indeed, the test failure
	stays which should now have proven that it is not a change in my code
	that broke but something that which I have installed in my smoke perls.

	I should try perls close to 31790: 31613 and 31882. OK and OK. Now I can
	go through diffs in the modules and upgrade until I have the jerk. Fun.
	[...hours later...] This strategy does not lead anywhere.

	32248 has no problem with this test either. But the scope of the problem
	to compare whole trees with hundreds of interdependencies is simply too

	New idea: CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make has been installed on those
	perls, has it not? Yes. And when I uninstall it, all's well.

	* This should become a BBC article:

eval q{use Brackup 1.06};
print $@ ? "N/A" : "OK";
print "\n";

	* Apache::Session failed today on 32235 because Test::Deep was missing.
	seq was 388 and the seq of Test::Deep was 390. The latter was
	successful, don't understand why it was not found by Apache::Session.
	Needs more investigations.

You already have a parser for (t/wmf/read.t) at /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pe1S7WD/perl-5.8.0@32235/lib/5.10.0/TAP/Harness.pm line 412

	This happens with Image::MAgick and bleadperl@3223[05] even after I
	fixed the test output of t/setattribute.t.

	* RHANDOM/Template-Alloy-1.009.tar.gz works with 5.9.4, 5.9.5, 5.10.0
	but hangs with 5.8.* during 05_tt_base. I ^Ced all 5.8 tests. 5.6.2 worked again.
	Same for RHANDOM/Template-Parser-CET-0.05.tar.gz, even the test has the same name.

	* [rt.cpan.org #30554] Not possible to upgrade from v1.9101

	A first approximation to the list that I really want would be a summary

	Shit, groups.google finds only 14 hits on "Bleadperl breaks CPAN" in a

	From the history of sent test reports it seems that Perl-Dist is to blame.

I'm starting cpan for bleadperl@32194 which has a working -V command so must have
a Config.pm. Let me see it:

	who wrote the result and who could not read it? Test::Harness 2.57_05
	and CPAN::Reporter (not installed!), so it was me!

	* Bug in File::Temp version checking code. A simple < is wrong, you must
	use CPAN::Version!

	* MLEHMANN/Gtk-Perl-0.7009.tar.gz fails because gtk-config not found or
	something. Installed libgtk1.2-dev. More libraries missing in the next
	round of trial and error.

	* File-MMagic-XS failed on 32195, 32186 which is threaded and debugging.
	I started to watch F:M:X with 31568 but we have one other
	threaded+debugging perl since then: 32032. But yes, 32032 was not a
	regular megainstall. So let's try DMAKI/File-MMagic-XS-0.09002.tar.gz
	with 32032. And on a maintperl? Try 31223.

	Yes, it fails with blead@32032 (panic free from wrong pool), it succeeds
	with maint@31223.

	And it fails for this:

	  MMagic.xs:455: error: expected declaration specifiers	or '...' before '(' token'

	with 27680, 27704, 27705, 27729, 27732, 27733, 27734
	It fails with the same panic free from wrong pool on 30953, 30952,
	29353, 28507, 28106, 27906, 27806, 27755, 27741, 27735.

	Next: According to the comment in 27735 we must go back in time before
	27649 and I see a good place at 23232 which is 51 points from 23181
	which is quite a good distance. 23240 would have been the better choice.
	Oh well.

eval q{use File::MMagic::XS 0.09002};
print $@ ? "N/A" : "OK";
print "\n";

2007-10-28  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* watching /tmp is boring and I want to delay the next RT tickets until
	after the next release of File::Temp.

	* I wish I had an overview over all BBC articles and the status they are
	in and links to the articles and the RT tickets and all postings that
	preceded BBC saying something like "23456 breaks Term::ReadLine::Gnu".
	This (at least the still open parts) should find its way into
	perl5100delta.pod. Math::Pari and T:R:G being the most prominent

	* Tcl maybe broke around 31941? We do not have the config of our perls
	in the database, so SQL will not do it. We need to find all Tcl=OK for
	perl=debugging. So some grep through all perl-V and all VKON! or so.

for d in logs/megainstall.2007{09,10}*.d; do
grep -H " optimize" $d/perl-V.txt | perl -pe 's/\n//'
grep ok= $d/VKON!Tcl-* |& perl -nle 'print /( ok=".+?")/'
logs/megainstall.20070922T1716.d/perl-V.txt:    optimize='-g', ok="OK"
logs/megainstall.20070923T1153.d/perl-V.txt:    optimize='-g', ok="NOT OK"

	This means 31939-31941 and we need a config with optimize=-g. Nonono,
	because 39 and 41 have long since been purged we need to order 40
	directly, then the neighbor and then write the BBC (unless the neighbor
	behaves differently from what we see in the database; which means 41
	must fail).

	31941 is easy peasy. The subject line says exactly what it is doing. But
	is it correct to limit an assertion to debugging mode? Are the two
	extensions doing stupid things? Let's examine the diagnostics. Tcl:

t/call.........Assertion ((svtype)((_svi)->sv_flags & 0xff)) >= SVt_RV failed: file "Tcl.xs", line 647 at t/call.t line 38.
^ITest returned status 88 (wstat 22528, 0x5800)
DIED. FAILED tests 9-10
^IFailed 2/10 tests, 80.00% okay

	And Coro? 4.13 does not work with 31940.

	31847/31854 MLEHMANN/Coro-3.63.tar.gz from NA to OK
	31682/31684 MLEHMANN/Coro-3.63.tar.gz from OK to NA

	SEGV during test: 31613, 31021, 30019, 29743, 29619

	PL_parser undeclared in State.xs:1111: 29023, 29503, 29537

	As this PL_parser is dependent on 5.9.0 I do not expect that any older perl will now compile

	Try older Coro: 4.11 no, 4.1 no, 4.03 SEGV

	SEGV during test with 4.03: 29537, 28022, 27002, 25229, 24044

	State.xs:263: error: too few arguments to function Perl_pad_push: 23023, 23494, 23768, 23973

	This State.xs:263 thing is even in the oldest Coro, 3.63 and I'm not up
	to searching backpan.

	So I will now have a look at the gdb analysis and then check in maint perl.

	Well. And maintperl? Ahhh, same thing! Stock 5.8.8 has it. 5.8.1 is
	simply too old to understand current Coro code. 22251(5.8.3) has the
	SEGV too. So no BBC in here.
	* Bugreport to self: File::Temp needs a minimum of 0.14 if we use the
	object interface. FIXED

	Ahh, PadWalker 1.5 denies working with 5.7.3, demands minimum 5.8.2


	Everything like in 27048 and the others above.


	PadWalker 1.5 does not pass its own tests:

        Failed 2/15 tests, 86.67% okay
t/tt..........FAILED tests 3-4
        Failed 2/5 tests, 60.00% okay

	I do a 'force install' on it. I then have to install Module::Build and
	ExtUtils::CBuilder and then I can install Devel::Caller and it tests OK:

	A few minutes later I have installed several other modules for a

	that does not pass its own test anymore. Why?

	I remove the installation and reinstall with ./installperl from the
	build directory. I install as above the three PadWalker, M:B and EU:CB

	I see Devel::Caller working again. I make a backup or this tree. I
	re-run './Build test' several times in the Devel-Caller-0.11-iL3qS5/
	directory, always success.

	Now I try to install the Bundle::CPANxxl piece by piece. YAML::Syck
	fails. IO::Tty OK. Expect OK. YAML fails. Test::Harness OK.

	* Net-Daemon's recent FAILS under threads seems to be due to the way the
	old Thread.pm has now become a compatibility layer. Its t/thread.t tests

if (!eval { require Thread; my $t = Thread->new(sub { }) }) {
    print "1..0\n";
    exit 0;

	The compat layer seems to have started working between 30910 and 32032:

% for p in `binsearchaperl --show-cache  --bounds 27048-33000 --apcdir /home/src/perl/repoperls/APC --prefix /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls --cachefilter tests/filter-threaded.pl `; do
$p -MThread -e 'print substr($^X,64), ": ", eval{Thread->new(sub { })} ? "" : "not ", "ok\n"'
done 2>/dev/null
@27048/bin/perl: ok
@29353/bin/perl: not ok
@30910/bin/perl: not ok
@31500/bin/perl: ok
@32032/bin/perl: ok
@32174/bin/perl: ok
@32186/bin/perl: ok
@32194/bin/perl: ok
@32195/bin/perl: ok

	but probably not good enough to run the whole code in t/thread.t.

	I would guess that somewhere between 27048 and 29353 the compatibility
	layer broke heavily and somewhere between 30910 and 31500 they
	fixed it a bit. 30955 was the last change to Thread.pm. The fix for our
	minimal testcase came a bit before that:

require Thread;
print eval{Thread->new(sub { })} ? "ok\n" : "not ok\n";

----Output of .../pCY4xFO/perl-5.8.0@30952/bin/perl----
not ok

----EOF ($?='0')----
----Output of .../pQ8RfLX/perl-5.8.0@30953/bin/perl----
Perl exited with active threads:
        1 running and unjoined
        0 finished and unjoined
        0 running and detached

----EOF ($?='0')----

require Thread;
print eval{Thread->new(sub { })} ? "ok\n" : "not ok\n";

----Output of .../ppYBvaY/perl-5.8.0@27704/bin/perl----
A thread exited while 2 threads were running.

----EOF ($?='0')----
----Output of .../pBY7a0s/perl-5.8.0@27705/bin/perl----
not ok

----EOF ($?='0')----

	Running a Net::Daemon 0.43 comare between 30952 and 53 shows the
	equivalent result. Now let's see for Devel-Caller and Sub-Multi.
	Devel-Caller needs a separate investigation (fails on both 3095[23]).
	Now I discover the dependency chain of Sub-Multi. I see that
	Devel::LexAlias depends on Devel-Caller. And Data::Bind depends on
	Devel::LexAlias and Sub::Multi depends on Data::Bind. So Sub::Multi can
	be dropped from further investigation.

	Note that we have not yet looked which construct it is that breaks in
	the test. So it might be interesting to look if 27704 was still ok. Yes,
	it passes all tests and does not skip the t/thread.t.

	BBC article is posted.

	* mod_perl also broke recently. Between 32090 and 32101. And it suddenly
	worked again in 32192 which was a nothreads nodebugging build without
	relocatable inc. nothing obvious, of course.

	I made a autobundle for 32085. And 32108. The diffs are huge.


	Nono, that's something entirely different. The test server cannot be
	started and nothing's there that would tell me an error message. I have

	I found the lib.pm that should be found at
	and indeed this is missing in the above list.

	Maybe it is because of relocateableinc? Not directly, of course, because
	we have had it working for 32085 and do not have it working for 32085
	now. So to compare autobundles we would first need a perl that currently
	correctly builds and tests mod_perl.

	32059 nowadays has the same problem. 32032 ditto. I untar the apache
	tarball once again and retry with 32032. Same result. 32009 was built on
	Oct 3 and I want to see the logs really, really exactly as they were.
	And what do I find? The same results but at that time CPAN::Reporter
	reported OK although so many tests were not run. A very interesting
	discovery. Probably this is just thanks to Test::Harness 2.99 now
	popping up?

	I'll now skip back in time and visit 31824 (if possible). It was the
	first perl I built with relocateableinc and it reported OK on mod_perl.
	Of course it also has the same bug with mod_perl 1.30. CPAN::Reporter
	reports (and reported on 2007-09-09) UNKNOWN in this case. But it got
	installed and make install was OK, so I did not discover the bug.

	Next stop in our time travel shall bring us to 31790 (2007-09-05T01:07).
	It was the last perl without relocateableinc. And all tests run and
	pass. Cheerio!

	Maybe a threaded thing? Need to start book keeping. 32174 says:

	and 32180 has no substantial change. 81 will be unthreaded again.

	* spamassassin seems to have bugs in the test suite that then are
	ignored. Seems to call out to the perl in the path which chokes on the
	prototype "_".

	* DWHEELER/Exception-Class-DBI-0.95.tar.gz failed for the first time
	ever in 32154. It was with DBI 1.601 and I think it was the first to

	on perl itself. 'make nok' sent. Seems to be because I tried a threaded
	perl. Sorry, forgot to make a backup, reconstruct running...

	It turns out that I see the same on 32174 and that it is load dependent.
	And JDHEDDEN says this is not a bug and he is not willing to change the
	timeouts. I wonder if this is related to threaded builds (321[57]4 were
	threaded) or really only load driven.

	* Yesterday I built my first jifty installation with current SVN and
	bleadperl. 32147 was the patchnumber. Soon after this installation was
	completed this perl was used to test Email-Send-2.191 and it failed
	miserably with errors leading to something jifty:


	Retrying the tests with 32152 succeeds nicely and with 32147 I can
	reproduce the bug. Resolution simple:


2007-10-21  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Variable::Magic is a candidate for a BBC article but the binary search
	is veiled by the fact that 28380/28381 is an important transition but
	there is another important transition. 28381 fails all tests with glibc
	noise but nowadays only one test fails. I need to find the transition
	from glibc noise to code that at least runs.

	The other end seems to be 28968 so that 28969 fixed the glibc thing. But
	this is very surprising because that patch only "bumped version to
	5.9.5". Maybe Variable::Magic uses the 4/5 somewhere.

	Now running Variable::Magic tests with 28969:

Failed Test  Stat Wstat Total Fail  List of Failed
t/31-array.t    2   512    21    2  20-21
3 tests skipped.

	But current bleadperl 32152 failes with

Failed Test   Stat Wstat Total Fail  List of Failed
t/10-simple.t    0    11    14    4  13-14
Failed 1/20 test scripts. 2/217 subtests failed.

Failed 1/20 test programs. 2/217 subtests failed.

	32015 is the first perl that breaks on 10-simple in this manner.

	* 32138 break keepcool and pingomatic--why? The logfiles for them are
	not being split out. In the original logfile I see

Can't open perl script "/tmp/Ab5Z0NrlWf": No such file or directory
Can't open perl script "/tmp/Ab5Z0NrlWf": No such file or directory

	So it seems that I may have deleted a wrong /tmp file and actually
	disturbed CPAN::Reporter and caused a false negative.

2007-10-14  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Going to report tmp directory. I already have reported:

	26078 Config-JSON: Using predictable filenames in /tmp is a security
	hazard and should be avoided even in test scripts. Besides if they
	aren't cleaned up they lead to failing tests. Please use File::Temp

	26951 Cache-FastMmap (resolved): Using predictable filenames in /tmp has
	some security implications too, so should be avoided. In this case it
	simply causes the test to fail because another user has occupied this
	file or directory.

	26538 HTML-Scrubber: The first bug is that the tmp file was not cleaned
	up and left ove from a different user in /tmp/. Generally it is
	considered a security issue to put predictable files into /tmp.
	File::Temp should be used instead.

	26536 Module-Refresh (resolved): The first bug is that the test script
	does not clean up after itself. /tmp/FooBar.pm is still around from a
	test by a different user. In general it is considered a security issue
	to write predictable file names into /tmp. Better you use File::Temp
	(and remove the files at the end nonetheless).

	Today I find a DBM Deep file, one that starts with "use strict;\nuse
	ExtUtils::MakeMaker;\nuse CPAN::Version;\n\n# read module and prereq
	string from STDIN\nwhile ( <STDIN> ) {...", a directory with two
	DBM-Deep files, about 40 "Hello world" perl programs, all at 23:45, a
	catalyst logo in PNG format at 23:47 and many, many more

	* Slaven sends a miserable FAIL with 5.6.2 and YAML 0.39.

	* The failing tests on mod_perl, Archive-Any, and GIS-Distance are
	repeatable with 32104 and Log-Dispatch-Config
	(http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=30073) has joined them in
	failing. I've stopped all running loops to look around in the /tmp

	32090 had a working A:A. fforce test on it now fails with

Running make test
Bareword found where operator expected at /tmp/N0WH1MFuPP line 1, near "'/usr/bin/make test 'TEST_FILES"
        (Missing operator before TEST_FILES?)

syntax error at /tmp/N0WH1MFuPP line 1, near "'/usr/bin/make test 'TEST_FILES"
Can't find string terminator "'" anywhere before EOF at /tmp/N0WH1MFuPP line 3.

	And the tempfile is gone. Starting to cleanup my /tmp directory and
	rerunning the A:A test again and again. AA itself leaves a testfile in
	/tmp. Not every time?

	Found something, not related to the tmp directory. I have

    - "TEST_FILES=t/00compile.t t/Any.t t/fail.t t/perl-critic.t t/pod.t t/type.t"

	in the distroprefs file. If I remove it we succeed. Finding a new bug by
	working around another. Who broke the distroprefs file? It is not
	MakeMaker or Harness. If I issue 'make test TEST_F...' manually it is
	fine. It's something coming earlier.

	It's in CPAN::Reporter. If I turn reporting off it goes away.
	Downgrading to 0.99_1[540] same problem. Downgrading to 99_05 nope,
	99_01 nope. To 0.4801 good.

	Ticks in a command. Patch sent to David.

	It's about extracting. This Archive::Unzip::Burst looks interesting. Why
	do we not have it?

	31790 compiles it and tests ok and has it installed.

	31824 has an old CPAN but it compiles it and tests OK. PAR Packer takes
	a long time to compile. It fails at compilation stage with

./par -I../myldr/.. -I../blib/lib -I"/home/sand/.cpan/build/PAR-Packer-0.976-ZlXHYS/inc" -I"/home/sand/.cpan/build/Archive-Unzip-Burst-0.02-58kTmp/blib/arch" -I"/home/sand/.cpan/build/Archive-Unzip-Burst-0.02-58kTmp/blib/lib" -I"/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pSib5JX/perl-5.8.0@31824/lib/5.10.0/i686-linux-64int" -I"/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pSib5JX/perl-5.8.0@31824/lib/5.10.0" -I"/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pSib5JX/perl-5.8.0@31824/lib/site_perl/5.10.0/i686-linux-64int" -I"/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pSib5JX/perl-5.8.0@31824/lib/site_perl/5.10.0" -I"/home/sand/.cpan/build/PAR-Packer-0.976-ZlXHYS" -I"." -q -B -O../script/parldyn
Usage: ./par [ -Alib.par ] [ -Idir ] [ -Mmodule ] [ src.par ] [ program.pl ]
       ./par [ -B|-b ] [-Ooutfile] src.par

	Maybe it has to do with option parsing? I mean, when I *install*
	Archive::Unzip::Burst and then try PAR again from scratch, it fails with
	the same error message. Getopt::ArgvFile is a prereq and has not changed.

	31790 has Getopt::Attribute missing. I retry to fforce test it on 31790.
	It compiles it. Running test ... (running out of time)

	For 31824 I hide Getopt::Attribute now and fforce test PAR-Packer-0.976
	here too. It fails again with the same error message.

	For 31824 I downgrade Module::Build from 0.2808_01 to 0.2808 which 790
	had. PAR-Parser still fails with the same error.

	For 31824 I downgrade from E:I 1.44 to
	YVES/ExtUtils-Install-1.41_04.tar.gz. I expect that if this has an
	influence it would show in the installation of other modules and so do
	not expect a change in behaviour. And so it gets confirmed.

	For 31824 I find a File::Path 2.00_11 which is lower than the 2.01 in

	Can I see the above par command once again for 31790?

./par -I../myldr/.. -I../blib/lib -I"/home/sand/.cpan/build/PAR-Packer-0.976-slY0pI/inc" -I"/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pNaGaP6/perl-5.8.0@31790/lib/5.9.5/i686-linux-64int" -I"/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pNaGaP6/perl-5.8.0@31790/lib/5.9.5" -I"/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pNaGaP6/perl-5.8.0@31790/lib/site_perl/5.9.5/i686-linux-64int" -I"/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pNaGaP6/perl-5.8.0@31790/lib/site_perl/5.9.5" -I"/home/sand/.cpan/build/PAR-Packer-0.976-slY0pI" -I"." -q -B -O../script/parldyn

	I realize that downgrading 31824 is more cumbersome than upgrading
	31790. Just run r command and pick something and retry PAR-Parser. I
	picked Set::Scalar and then realized that I'm hunting two bugs at once.
	One is the above "./par" command that triggers a "Usage" error, the
	other is a failing 20-pp test. And I see now that 31790 fails on test
	20-pp. Unfortunately it is a very time consuming test and I must restart
	me research to find explain each error separately.

	* what's up with IPC::PubSub breakage? Is it breaking because of its
	dependency on DBM::Deep?

	Only time series can help here. It started failing with 32002, was green
	up to 32001. And indeed this was the first day of DBM-Deep 1.0006

    /home/sand/.cpan/Bundle/Snapshot_2007_10_03_00.pm 32002
	  /home/sand/.cpan/Bundle/Snapshot_2007_10_03_01.pm 32001

	This also marked the change from 64bitint=define zu undef and a non
	debugging perl, CPAN::Reporter 0.99_1[34], lots of other differences.

	But I upgraded 32001 to DBM::Deep 1.0006 and now tests of IPC::PubSub
	fail. Downgrading to DBM::Deep 1.0005 is refused because tests fail. But
	it was not 1.0005, it was 1.0004 that which IPC::PubSub worked with


	* bugreport to Jifty would circle on: current SVN tells me to install
	IPC::PubSub, Email::Send, Test::WWW::Declare

	- IPC::PubSub in megainstall but tests failing

	- Email::Send missing in megainstall, added now but tests failing

	- Test::WWW::Declare unknown on CPAN must come from repo (done)

	* EDPRATOMO/Algorithm-Permute-0.06.tar.gz probably needs a binary
	search, it fails to *compile* the XS code. Presumably it has compiled
	once upon a time. 25532 fails; 20002 OK; 23023 OK; OOOPs, I have doen
	this already and reported. See further below.

	* JROBINSON/SQL-Translator-0.08001.tar.gz is another BBC candidate.

t/37-translator-graph......Can't locate object method "is_trivial_link" via package "GLOB" at /home/sand/.cpan/build/SQL-Translator-0.08001-oWjySe/blib/lib/SQL/Translator/Schema/Graph.pm line 46.
# Looks like you planned 3 tests but only ran 2.
# Looks like your test died just after 2.
        Test returned status 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00)
        Failed 1/3 tests, 66.67% okay

	See 2007-07-03 where I said I cannot run a binary search against it. Now
	I can at least with some manual intervention. 23023 OK. It's hard to run
	this binary search correct because now some of these perls do not pass
	YAML tests and subsequently cannot patch/install Module::Build without
	intervention. 24439 OK. 24759 OK.

	But 24759 depends on YAML and YAML has was not working for 24759 so
	CPAN.pm didn't install it. We have all tests pass but no installation.
	Need to force it. And YAML::XS is also tunneled.

	So we have a very dark tunnel around 24759 with neither YAML nor
	Module::Build. I have a patch for MB but not for YAML.

	In any case 28539 still has the test 37 bug. 25532 OK; 27048 fails;
	26369 (needs force install YAML) OK; 26695 (force install YAML) fails;
	26465 OK; 26545 fails; 26480 OK; ... 496 fails; 488 fails; 484 OK

	* RCLAMP/POE-Component-Server-HTTP-0.09.tar.gz looks like a BBC
	candidate 22245 OK. But it's shadowed by the depends on POE-API-Peek
	which was broken by blead for a while around 27514.

	I have the impression that POE::API::Peek started to work on 31051 and
	that POE::Component::Server::HTTP now works too since I have added a
	dependency on POE::API::Peek in my distroprefs file. Nope, the
	dependency on POE::API::Peek is in the Makefile.PL of P:C:S:HTTP.

	Apparently all's well. *Maybe* there's also a configure_requires on POE
	needed somewhere, dunno.

	* IFF Compress::Zlib 2.X does not work we can take
	PMQS/Compress-Zlib-1.42.tar.gz as a replacement!

	Would be nice to find a replacement for Scalar-List-Utils too. 1.19 does
	not work with blead@23023, but 1.17 does.

	* off topic: try rob kinyon's bug with the next bleadperl which will
	have no debugging and no int64bit.

2007-09-29  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* digging into gtk. It always failed because somebody told the Gtk
	self-configuration that something on my system was not sufficient. No
	helpful diagnostics were ever provided.

	Running through the debugger today reveals that it is due to pkg-config.

	Asking pkg-config with the right options reveals a few things

	# pkg-config --exists --print-errors 'gtk+-2.0'

	I had to call it several times and to install libxmu-dev libxinerama-dev
	libxinerama1 (who would have guessed?)

	This does at least let the above command return true.

	But there is still a version requirement in the Gtk2 package that says

	gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.0

	And surprise, we now fulfill it.

	I think the only bug is the --silence-errors option that I saw in the
	debugger. It should be replaced with --print-errors. Otherwise the user
	never sees an error and has to suffer.


	* todo: add more Tk modules to megainstall. Which are missing?

	distroprefs/MSISK.HTML-TableExtract.yml and that is why since then I
	have ONLY fails.

	Would be cool to offer a fix though.

	But in the interest of sanity it would be better to write a distroprefs
	file automatically that's based on some criterium like, say, no release
	for over N months although since that many months nothing but fail
	reports. This would also be interesting for CPANTS.

	* Todo: write a history of used distroprefs docs so we can identify
	which ones are never used and can be purged.

	runs into a tight loop of 'Warning: Use of "require" without parentheses
	is ambiguous at (eval 5493800) line 1.' At least now twice for 31952 and

	I have to kill this one:

	Now we're done. I urgently need a solution for that. Both for a
	bugreport and for the meta stuff with probably POE. Or commandline.

	Interesting enough is that Mt-5.421 is young and I have 4 OKs up to
	31945. Compare autobundle with @31945 and @31952 and @31955:


	Diffs are worthless because the latter two were killed. But I can reproduce the bug.

	* tentative posting to Module::Build

	Recently, on IRC (off the top of my head):

	<klapperl>: so can you explain why the compatibility layer is broken?
	<ewilhelm>: jeez, it is the *compatibility layer*

	I think it's time that Module::Build considers another compatibility
	layer in addition to the existing one. This is just a raw sketch to get
	some talk going, I have not actually tried to work this out. So what
	would people think of this:

	Build.PL has a new option
	    diplomatic_makefile_pl => 1,

	generated Makefile.PL
	    if (eval { require Module::Build; 1}){
	      # if user has Module::Build installed we use it
        system $^X, "Build.PL";
	    } else {

	the generated diplomatic Makefile would then contain:
	      ./Build test
	      ./Build install

	Has this been tried? Does it have pitfalls? It seems so easy and
	natural. Isn't anybody keen implementing it?

	* switching back to EUMM for one smoke and then back to MB with the

Man sollte auch in Betracht ziehen, was einem Expect selbst fuer
diesen Fall anbietet. Man kann ja alle Regexes gleichzeitig ins Rennen
schmeissen. Irgendwie. So richtig habe ich es damals nicht verstanden,
wie es geht.

	* Bug: somebody broke *.bs files with crap content recently. Leads to
	tons of error messages with no (?) consequences but screen noise. I
	removed all these broken *.bs files but now I have no idea where they
	were coming from. Too much smoking produces too thick air.

	Mark Overmeer just complained about the resulting smoke reports. When I
	look into my mailq I find only two large mails waiting for delivery, all
	others are fine. So how do I find out who wrote these files?

	I first remove the crap in my mailq. Done, so we have only 235 mails in
	the mqueue which look OK. For the record, the following are the latest
	smokes (but their dependencies naturally missing). All times CEST. At
	21:27 we had already a broken system.

	And I find 163 identical *.bs files scattered all over the place with

	What was smoking with 31223 at 22:09? I just searched for my reports on
	rpm-build-perl on http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.cpan.testers/ and
	they seem to be fine.

	In my eyes there is only one candidate at the moment: DDS.

	In the meantime Max Maischain (CORION) complained as well.

	Update 2007-09-08: I just discovered that not only the 10 perls were
	broken that I'm using to smoke but many, many others as well. The
	timestamp of the file is 2007-09-06T22:09, they have 2217 bytes and have
	the same md5sum and although I have already deleted plenty of them I
	still count 22049 of these files. Somebody was really busy.

	Hrm. Now I have a suspect. My trimtrees is most likely to blame. These
	files will have the same inode and somebody only changed one random
	zero-byte file without unlinking it first and all this happened. Yes?
	Indeed, the inode is 1855345.

	So I'll have to fix trimtrees:-(

	moved to the unlimited(?) heap of hangers and the next job from the

	one of the hangers. As soon as this is done that job gets queued again
	and is not considered a hanger anymore. The queuerunner will then send

I was using the bleadperl version of cpan to install a module
(B::Utils) and here is what I saw. The second ...... DONE line took a
long time (more than a minute) to execute, makeing me wonder if it had
crashed, but it finished eventually.

Either File::Spec should be changed to not warn, or CPAN needs to be
changed not to pass undef to File::Spec::Win32::catdir.

Ps: this output is what i see immediately after installing blead from
rsync. I note that it doesnt require the CPAN config process that I
would have expected.

Consider this when installing the CPAN bundle:

  Importing PAUSE public key into your GnuPG keychain... gpg: WARNING:
using insecure memory!
  gpg: please see http://www.gnupg.org/faq.html for more information
  (You may wish to trust it locally with 'gpg --lsign-key 450F89EC')

  Writing Makefile for CPAN


Not all people use one monolithing GPG keyring, so any automatic
"imports" beyond user control is bad. Please don't automatically import
any keys, but sugest the KEYID or present a gpg key fetch command to use.

Here is an example of the typical use of multiple keyrings to separate
keys according to their use:

$ cat ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf
keyring pubring-remailer.pgp
keyring pubring-sw-development.pgp

In this case the CPAN key would have been put into
pubring-sw-development.pgp, but the CPAN installer script couldn't have
known that.

	* bartl writes in RT 28946:

On Windows 98, with CPAN.pm 1.9102 (ActivePerl 5.8.8 build 822), the
CPAN shell dies as soon as it's started up, with the error message:

  flock() unimplemented on this platform at
D:/programs/ActivePerl5.8/lib/CPAN.pm line 1015.

That line looks like this:

        while (!flock $fh, LOCK_EX|LOCK_NB) {

(And there's another line pretty much like it on line 3397.)

Ironically, before installing this version, I had done nmake test
because I was expecting trouble, and all tests passed. So I don't think
there is any test related to flock. (ActivePerl build 5.8.8 comes with
this version of CPAN, I've had to downgrade because of this problem.)

Among the versions that are still available on CPAN, the first version
to contain flock calls is 1.90. The latest development release still has
these same code lines in those areas, so I don't think the problem has
been resolved yet.

The problem does not exist on a more modern, NT based, version of
Windows, like Windows XP.

CPAN::HandleConfig::home does not handle a return of "undef" from
File::HomeDir->my_data. In my particular network configuration this
arises, causing CPAN to incorrectly ignore my ~/.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm
and try to run CPAN::FirstTime::init.  (I'm not sure why it does the
latter, but that's not part of this bug report.)

The details: CPAN is being invoked in a ssh session into an OS X box,
which gets its user account information via NIS.  My account is
"foreign" (i.e. not created on the Mac) and File::HomeDir->my_data()
returns "undef" (which seems appropriate).

Unfortunately, this causes CPAN::HandleConfig::load to ignore my
existing ~/.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm (as the path to it is now wrong) and
to try to create a new one.  (It should be noted that
CPAN::FirstTime::init uses a different algorithm to determine where the
config file goes; it just uses $ENV{HOME}).

The most obvious solution would be to check the return from
File::HomeDir->my_data and if it is "undef" to fall back to using
$ENV{HOME} or File::HomeDir->my_home.

	* Bug: by adding 

	CPAN::HandleConfig->load unless $CPAN::Config_loaded++;

	We must give all kinds of noise a name and one or more verbosity levels.

	That which is not our own noise must be delegated to the owner.

	* long standing bug in configure_requires only visible in the logfiles


	Somebody injects Apache::Cookie and somebody injects Apache::Request.
	Apache-DBI and Apache-Test have already been installed at this point.
	libapreq is untarred, configure_require hits and before it can resolve
	things correctly configure_require_later is incremented a second time
	and we panic.

	The number of modules installed before the bug happens is low:

	perl -nle '$S{$1}++ if /Running make for ([\040-\177]+)/; END {
   print map { "$_\n" } grep { $S{$_}==5 } keys %S;
}' logs/megainstall.20070{727T0705,730T1247,803T0330,810T2248,812T0825}.out|wc -l

	Reading the list reveals nothing inspiring/obvious/spectacular. With
	this tar command I can reproduce the state at the moment when the bug happened:

	tar -xvz -C / -f ./installed-perls-perl-31701.tar.gz

	But I need the command that reproduces it.

	I thought of

	rm -rf ~/.cpan/build/libapreq-1.33-* ~/.cpan/build/mod_perl-1.30-* ~/.cpan/build/Apache-*
	rm -f /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pwRjjSU/perl-5.8.0@31701/lib/site_perl/5.9.5/Apache/DBI.pm /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pwRjjSU/perl-5.8.0@31701/lib/site_perl/5.9.5/i686-linux-64int/Apache/Test.pm

	and then

	cpan> install Apache::DBI Apache::Test Apache::Request

	But this installs mod_perl just fine as it should.

	With a variant of the one liner (bin/confreq_bug_logs.pl) we see more
	clearly what's common to all these failing runs.

	Trying to build threaded perl with maint@31223 FAILS!

	Blead@31701 SAME!

	Blead@28938 which I have built sometime in the past fails too.

	Looks like '2007-07-24 20:09 libc6-i686.list' and that reboot mark an event.

	I'll try gcc-3.4 next. Does not help

	Google leads me to a posting of mine to cpantesters from May, 17 where
	blead@31207 could not build DBI. Nothing that leads me to the real

	Either I upgrade to libc6-2.6.1-1 or I ignore the issue. I ask apt-get
	to upgrade and see very discouraging plans with lots of removals. So I
	stop it. I ask aptitude to do it and it suggests to upgrade only these

	  libc6-xen libc6-i686 libc6-dev libc6 

	without removing anything. This I prefer.

	Without rebooting this doesn't help:

FAILED--expected 3 tests, saw 1

	It's probably a limit problem. root can run the test. But I changed
	limits 4 months ago?! But you didn't leave any shell until recently.

	What a stupidity. I set the stack to over a GB. Everything fixed now.
	Unwind the stack now:)

	* Devel::EvalContext-0.08 is chasing me again and I see it working with
	27002. But Data-Alias-1.0[56] do not compile with e.g. 29487. Is an
	older Data::Alias at backpan? Where is backpan nowadays?


	YES! HERE it is:


	Here I conclude that I should mirror this directory and put the mirror
	second in the urllist and put the backpan last in the list.

	Then I need to see under which patchlevel I need to try with 1.04 and
	rewrite the prep script.

	Patchlevel 28990 does not compile 1.05 nor 1.0[432] but 1.01 OK. And
	with 1.01 we get Devel::EvalContext OK.

	blead			Data::Alias		Devel::EvalContext
	27002			1.05 OK				0.08 OK
	28966			1.05 OK				0.08 OK

	It's really not a bleadperl problem.

	* jumpqueue takes as arguments short arrayreferences. We must put some
	aiming_at argument there containing get/make/test/install. Because we
	will see configure_require dependencies that must be treated accordingly
	when they only said get or make.

	So it isn't a pseudo hash thing? well, 17705 failed because XML::Twig

	SVG::Metadata passes its tests.

	Next round of binsearch with the fixed 17705. And then I had to find out
	that SVG::Metadata does not declare its dependency on HTML::Entities and
	had to install that manually into some involved perls and finally I got:

	this time I want to disable prefs? No, k installs, sand tests.

	Yes, even with Test::Reporter 1.27 the mail from Mail::Send seems to
	have been accepted for delivery (RJBS/Test-BinaryData-0.003.tar.gz). Now
	with Test::Reporter 1.30 I tried KWILLIAMS/Path-Class-0.16.tar.gz. And

	Mails went out through sendmail.

	Mailq is empty. But the mails did not come back to me on the
	subscription address. Nor to Google

	Let me compare the 3 mails above with the last mail before that. It was
	about BPAN. A bad one with Mail::Send:

	And a good one with Net::SMTP:

# egrep 'l6L5MQN5027327' /var/log/mail.info
Jul 21 07:22:26 k75 sm-mta[27327]: l6L5MQN5027327: from=<andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>, size=4884, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<200707210522.l6L5MQN5027327@franz.ak.mind.de>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=localhost.localdomain []

	Too obvious. CPAN::Reporter or Test::Reporter is unable to set the from
	address when switching to Mail::Send.

	Stepping through the debugger. Test::Reporter::_mail_send line 344 sets
	the From correctly. Later Mail::Send passes itself over to Mail::Mailer

  DB<14> n
57:         Mail::Mailer->new(@_)->open($self);
DB<14> x \@_

   'X-Reported-Via' => ARRAY(0xbe3be14)
      0  'Test::Reporter 1.30, via CPAN::Reporter 0.46'

	Aha. I have sendmail installed and despite Mail::Send and Mail::Mailer
	carefully keep the $sender and $hdr intact, Mail::Mailer::sendmail
	throws it away because it cannot handle it.

	The documentation of Test::Reporter tells me that I can use
	$tr->mail_send_args(['smtp']); perhaps. So let's try. With MailTool
	2.00_01 I must write a bugreport that there is a syntax error.
	With current version 1.77 there is a failure:

Sending test report with 'pass' to cpan-testers@perl.org
        (in cleanup) Undefined subroutine &Mail::Mailer::smtp::close called at /usr/local/perl-5.8.8/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/Mail/Mailer.pm line 204.
Catching error: 'Undefined subroutine &Mail::Mailer::smtp::close called at /usr/local/perl-5.8.8/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/Mail/Mailer.pm line 133.
        (in cleanup) Undefined subroutine &Mail::Mailer::smtp::close called at /usr/local/perl-5.8.8/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/Mail/Mailer.pm line 204.
' at lib/CPAN.pm line 275
        CPAN::shell() called at -e line 1

	So maybe the mail was sent but it certainly was a die() before the
	bookkeeping was done:-( No, from the logfile it seems there was no mail
	sent at all.

	So I try again with 2.00_01 and insert an "or" before the return to fix
	the syntax. This dies without an error message.

	So I come to the conclusion that I must fix Test::Reporter for me.

	IS this all I need?

	All the configure_requires stuff is only working for "install", often

	* off topic: working on Module::Build for "the corridor". Trying to
	determine the exact boundaries of the corridor. The lower end is not
	that hard to determine because binarysearch finds its way through the
	area. But the upper boundary is slow because for some reason questions
	are being asked by, e.g. 25125. Ah, it is within the corridor. 26003 is
	outside. First broken perl is 23190, last one is....25414.

	* Todo: investigate version.pm and Module::Build in the 23000-25000
	corridor. I recently posted the problem and Schwern made a suggestion I
	need to test against.

	* TMOERTEL/Test-LectroTest-0.3500.tar.gz started to fail with 31613 but
	it had already a fail with 31429. Reproducable? The test takes a very
	long time, tempting to press ^C. OK, after a couple of minutes, all
	tests OK.

	This is the FAIL with 31613:

	The FAIL with 613 is now reproducable. The OK with 600 is not
	reproducable anymore, some update since then has broken it.

	The last OK before was with 2007-07-12T22:46 (31599). This OK is

	This was really two bugs: one that we believed that "v1.0" was 0. FIXED now

	The other is that I believe that trailing ".0" should not actually be
	treated as significant. This mainly because version.pm's numify really
	translated v1.0 to 1.000000 and has no roundtrip between numify and

5.9.5's default cpan is much better, in that it defaults virtually
everything intelligently and just asks that you pick a mirror for
yourself.  I think defaulting to http transports even for the fetch of
the initial MIRRORED.BY would improve things even more, but that goes
back to http transports not being available in stock Perl on all
platforms.  LWP is a solution, but unlikely to make it into core
anytime soon.  Perhaps if it would at least test for http support (via
LWP or external stuff like wget/curl) and default to using any
available http transport instead of ftp if possible for bootstrapping
mirror lists and module lists, that would improve the situation for

	* configure_requires needs dummy test distro that depends on some other
	dummy test distro. we must test the behaviour if that other distro is
	available and if it is not available.

	with Data::Alias 1.06. Data::Alias does not like 23023. 26015? No.
	28005? Ignition found. The binsearch reaches 28927/8 which simply cannot
	be it. We must look why EvalContext failed. YAML 0.65 is a prereq and it
	did not compile at that time. In 28928 we have no YAML and so no install
	happens. But why do we have a YAML with 28927? Maybe some test has been
	skipped or some such, it does not really matter. 26015 also fails
	because of YAML. 27422 has YAML and tests OK. For further proceedings we
	must filter out perls that cannot have a YAML 0.65 for whatever reason.
	We should probably install YAML with notest. Doing so now.

	Just for the record, the failing test is this one:

	bleadperls. This means I start another binsearch to find this threshold
	and after that I can limit the other binsearch to the interval that we
	have a working Data::Alias 1.06 for. The threshold is 31252. This is the
	very first bleadperl that works with Data::Alias 1.06

	And within this short interval 31252-31505 Devel::EvalContext seems to
	not run. Now what would be interesting to know: how long did D:E work
	with Data::Alias 1.05?

	The first Devel::EvalContext that worked for me was with 27002

	* Raphael asked me to pay special attention to 31505. New fails
	according to CPAN::Reporter:

	FAIL re-engine-Plan9-0.09                    first time ever
	FAIL re-engine-PCRE-0.10                     first time ever
	FAIL Devel-EvalContext-0.08                  has always failed except for maintperl[1]
	NA Image-Magick-Thumbnail-PDF-1.10           just a new distro

	[1] so why was it reported then? According to CPAN::Reporter it was
	always a NA and is now a FAIL. Reason for NA was that Data::Alias was
	broken and this one got a new release yesterday. So how would
	Devel::EvalContext fare now with the new Data::Alias? Not good.
	new fails since 31493:

	AVAR/re-engine-PCRE-0.10.tar.gz                    first time ever
	AVAR/re-engine-Plan9-0.09.tar.gz                   first time ever
	JESSE/Jifty-DBI-0.41.tar.gz                        new failure mode[2]
	LEOCHARRE/Image-Magick-Thumbnail-PDF-1.10.tar.gz   new distro
	MSERGEANT/XML-Filter-XInclude-1.0.tar.gz           has always been flaky
	RJBS/Email-Valid-0.179.tar.gz                      for unknown reason not in 31493 at all

	TELS/graph/Graph-Easy-As_svg-0.21.tar.gz           has always been flaky

	[2]in 31493 again OK on a new test and in 505 again NOT OK on a new
	test; reading diffs in autobundle seems DBIx::DBSchema has a new release
	0.33 which breaks a test. Downgrading to IVAN/DBIx-DBSchema-0.32.tar.gz
	fixes the tests. http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=27827
	gone since 31493:


	That's all fair and explicable and not interesting to report.

	Class::Trait was the first that jumped into my eyes so it is now running
	a binary search. Waiting for 31487:31492. Waiting for 87:89. No, from
	reading 88 is is clear that it is an issue with 89 and I can inform
	Brandon and go to bed.

2007-06-19  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* DBI 1.57 needs a binary search and I cannot compile perls between
	20373 and 20575. They all fail with

cc -L/usr/local/lib -o miniperl \
            miniperlmain.o opmini.o libperl.a -lnsl -ldl -lm -lcrypt -lutil -lc 
libperl.a(mg.o): In function `Perl_magic_set':

/home/src/perl/repoperls/perl-p-5.8.0@20573/pp_sys.c:3003: undefined reference to `eaccess'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

	So we could try to replace mg.c and pp_sys.c with later versions? We
	could look into our history if we ever had such an encounter -- No.

	So we need to document that because we will have to go into this region

	Where were mg.c changes?

	./bin/blame-helper.pl --diffdir APC/5.9.0/diffs --lower 20400 --upper 24009 mg.c

	As expected, I cannot compile 20829 either. As all this is highly
	unlikely to help we should rather look into config.sh:

	Maybe I should try to add to --config '-Ud_eaccess -Ud_setruid
	-Ud_setrgid -Ud_setproctitle'? I think I did that before. Because we
	have the directories already I edit the config.sh to the same effect and
	run make again. I do this in 20474. Yes this is the way to go.

	Lets write this in perl:

	perl -pi~ -e 's/define/undef/ if /^d_(eaccess|setruid|setrgid|setproctitle)=/' config.sh

eval q{use DBI 1.57};

	Lingua::Stem::It from packages.

moddump.200706111947GMT.bz2:INSERT INTO `primeur` VALUES ('Lingua::Stem::It','ACALPINI');

	I find no indication as to why this might have happened. So I schedule
	it for reindexing and wait if Lingua::Stem starts to PASS again.

	Further investigations reveal that there *was* a
	A/AC/ACALPINI/Lingua-Stem-it-0.02.tar.gz (note lowercase) which also had
	contained Lingua::Stem::It and when it was removed from cpan, the
	indexer threw away the L:S:I record. Nobody reindexed the
	Lingua-Stem-it-0.02.tar.gz then until I did.

	And then it turned out that this new release broke L:S testsuite:-(


	* Class-DBI is yet to be analysed.

	The RT queue is full of spam. The last release was in November.
	cpantesters has a high number of PASSes.

	Stepping through the debugger reveals:

	Has maybe DBD::SQLite broken Class::DBI? Google for 'PRAGMA table_info()'?

	Aha: http://lists.digitalcraftsmen.net/pipermail/classdbi/2007-March/001583.html

	Answer: Check your version of DBD::SQLite. 1.13 and CDBI don't get
	along. Downgrade to 1.12.

2007-06-14  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Tie-EncryptedHash-1.21


	* Todo: configure_requires is now official in the META docs and needs
	doing. I'm now sure I want a distropref for personal dependencies. I do
	not want to intermix them with the three _require types, so I'll
	probably call it but_first. The implementation will then be very, very
	close to configure_requires. The point is that this stuff shall kick in
	very early, before we run Makefile.PL.

	Update 2007-06-15 akoenig maybe depends is a better keyword than
	but_first. "But first" comes from hiveminder. We definitely need depends
	WITH sub keywords
	{configure_,build_,}requires modelled after the META spec so that we get
	the full power that is to be implemented anyway.

	* DBIx-Timeout again. I once gave it a dsn but this may have been wrong
	as there is no dependency on dbd::mysql and so we get random results
	depending on DBI::mysql being available or not.

	* AxKit 1.6.2 intermittant failures. In the distropref I wrote once that
	I won't care further but intermittant success/failure keeps the thing
	getting in the way. RT for axkit is full of spam and the last resolved
	bug was two years ago. The mailing list is dead since September 2006. I
	take it out of megainstall.txt for now.

2007-06-13  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* ROODE/Time-Format-1.02.tar.gz intermittant failures.

	Already in RT (22047) for many months. I should probably patch it.

	I've voiced myself in the ticket for now.

	* SWF::Builder flaky test. Seemingly random results. This RT ticket is
	now 4 weeks old. Need to patch the distro.


	distroprefs/YSAS.SWF-Builder.yml DONE

	* POE 0.9989 fails a tk test under very rare unknown circumstances.

	Only three time (2007-06-06T19:55 (31344), 2007-05-29T05:48 (31296),
	2007-05-26T14:17 (31281)) in 26*6+1 times. The failure is not
	reproducable. The logfiles show all three times exactly the same:

#   Failed test 'coderef/shutdown close'
#   at t/30_loops/00_base/wheel_run.pm line 332.
#          got: 'close'
#     expected: 'stdout'
# Looks like you planned 99 tests but only ran 97.
# Looks like you failed 1 test of 97 run.
^ITest returned status 1 (wstat 256, 0x100)
DIED. FAILED tests 53, 98-99
^IFailed 3/99 tests, 96.97% okay


	* MSISK/HTML-TableExtract


	The output looks very similar to HTML::CalendarMonth. It's about the
	difference between <foo attr=0> and <foo attr="0">.

	I see very randomly looking test results. There must be a correlation to
	some already installed module.

$ grep -r 'eval.*use ' lib/
lib/HTML/TableExtract.pm:    eval "use HTML::TreeBuilder";
lib/HTML/TableExtract.pm:    eval "use HTML::ElementTable 1.17";

	The TreeBuilder is it.

	But this does not answer the HTML::CalendarMonth problem.

	* why does an upgrade install Chart 2.4.1? Because 2.4.1 < 2.3? How does
	this happen?

2007-06-05  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Todo: Test if we can work with YAML::Tiny.

	No, it fails on many distroprefs files and on FTPstats.yml. This was
	with 0.12.

	* WWW::Live365 has very mixed/random test results. Most recent breakage
	was WWW::Mechanize but this seems to be fixed now, so probably
	everything OK.

2007-06-04  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Watch HTML-TreeBuilder-XPath-0.08

	It failed suddenly in current build and has quite a good history of
	green builds, although not perfect.

	* Binary searches in some regions below 23023 are getting uglier and
	uglier. I now see test failures in CPAN.pm's 10version.t (Out of
	memory!) so CPAN.pm does not get installed, we have to use a very old
	CPAN.pm which cannot install current CPAN::Reporter and cannot run
	distroprefs. So it asks all the questions that we had so happily

	Some time ago I had always used the very current CPAN.pm from the repo
	for running the binary searches. Maybe I should switch back to that?

	Notest is your friend! First we check if we are below patchlevel 23023.
	Then we check if we are below 1.8802. If so, we install 1.8802 so that
	we get at "notest". Then we install current version with the help of
	notest. Fini. Now it flies again.

	* SADAHIRO/ShiftJIS-X0213-MapUTF-0.30.tar.gz might also be a candidate,
	or with the same history pattern:

	Let's try with


	This became a BBC article on 2007-06-05

	fails also. 20002 doesn't fail. After many hours we reach the interval
	between 22774 and 22872 and we need to build new perls again.

	Before we reach the endpoint I already see that the test output has
	already changed somewhere, so maybe we need more binary searches. The

2007-06-02  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* AMICHAUER/Unicode-Lite-0.12.tar.gz works with maint not with blead.

	It's a module from 2002-08-29, what can we expect? Still we must find
	the reason why it started failing. The patch number is 24660. I found it
	commented in 'This Week on perl5-porters (3-9 October 2005)':


	There has not been a BBC article about 24660 yet... Now there is.

	And Nicholas has posted a fix too.



	* Voting:C:RP either broke between 2007-04-28T18:42 and
	2007-04-29T07:05. The maint 5.8 result seems to proof that it was not a
	bleedperl change:

662	PJF/Voting-Condorcet-RankedPairs-1.01 298	2007-04-27T04:58 perl 	   31093 OK

	It's a simple dependency on Graph and that bug is already reported, so
	nothing to do.

2007-05-29  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Test::FormValidator is a candidate for BBC? 23023 failed the same way
	as current. 20002 also. So no, it is not a candidate, it is simply
	broken by some dependency and RT shows it and cpantesters has plenty of
	indicators. This is a case where we need a rule when a module is to be
	removed from megainstall.

	* why is DBD::SQLite failing? Since 2007-05-27T11:40, 2007-05-26T14:17
	was still OK?

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root     288 May 27 00:02 libsqlite3-0.list
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root     379 May 27 00:02 libsqlite3-dev.list

	So we must find out which parameter DBD::SQLite needs to find the right

libsqlite3-0/testing uptodate 3.3.14-1
libsqlite3-dev/testing uptodate 3.3.14-1

	The Changes file says it is up to date with 3.3.5!

	* Todo: equip all installed perls with current CPAN and CPAN::Reporter DONE

	* B::Generate has already got a BBC article.


	Now Scott Walters claims to have a working replacement.

	But it doesn't work on bleadperl either.

	The BBC article about ABERGMAN's 1.06 pointed to bleadperl@22315.

	New binary search needs a little help to get a proper result. Old CPAN
	and CPAN::Reporter get in the way. Upgrade. Then continue with Scott's
	and Schwern's version, verify that 22315 really was the breaker. Speed
	things up.

	Dependency on WWW-Mechanize which is not only broken ATM but all

	PETDANCE/WWW-Mechanize-1.29_01.tar.gz fixes the gap for the moment.

	Ahh, because it needs some minimum version too?

Alias.xs:1670: error: 'yy_parser' has no member named 'lex_state'

	I suppose XMATH knows about the need for a new release, 1.05 was
	released on May 13, so I should not waste everybody's time. But it is

	Must be a module or a debian thing, not a bleadperl change. On Mar 27th

	* Attacking perlbal from inside. There are three envariables to turn on
	debugging and I can add code to use them. But where does the server log
	its problems?

	The code hints at syslog but maybe user sand cannot do that? 

	The stupid thing is that Perlbal cannot do something but all it
	complains about is "Configuration error". Currently 1.58 does that for
	both 23023 and 31199. And 20002. And 16961.

	Maybe it is trivial, something with /tmp and permissions? All I need is
	the real reason for the error.

	Finally a brilliant idea:

	make testdb TEST_FILE=t/10-testharness.t

  DB<9> n
ERROR: Modification of a read-only value attempted at blib/lib/Perlbal/TCPListener.pm line 51.
Configuration error at blib/lib/Perlbal/Test.pm line 132.

	Which leads me to a line where a fields object gets reblessed:

	 51     bless $self, ref $class || $class;

	So same problem as in Danga::Socket and I can fix that. But before that
	I should have a look at a rebless module.

	Yes, a dozen spots where a fields object gets reblessed. Then this:

crash log: Attempt to access disallowed key 'last_request_time' in a restricted hash at blib/lib/Perlbal/ClientProxy.pm line 90, <GEN2> line 1.

	Now only 32-selector.t fails. It seems to have to do with inheritance. I
	put a little debugging into rebless() and see this:

[pid=29009->29015]  DB<10> beginning run
ok 2 - perlbal started

ending run

	So I try to write a new rebless function that which locks the old keys
	AND the new keys. Again

t/32-selector.t  255 65280    38   72  3-38

	Yes, this can be worked around with extremely ugly nonsensical code.
	But it may give way to something better.

	For now I put the patch into the patches directory.

	* Bug: megainstall.20070511T2103.out shows an endless loop for HTML-GMap.

	But where's the patch? This was a week ago on 31130. Patch uploaded and
	distropref written.

	* SUNGO/POE-API-Peek-1.0802.tar.gz never works but it has only PASSes on
	cpantesters. Dependency on Devel::Size.

	* RIZEN/Config-JSON-1.0.3.tar.gz broke on the day we switched user:

	Again a predictable filename in /tmp/


2007-05-10  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* PETDANCE / Test::WWW::Mechanize 1.12 is failing all the time.

	There is a cleanup routine that kills the server without further
	diagnostics. The reason why this cleanup is called prematurely is
	"Can\'t locate Encode/ConfigLocal.pm in @INC" what I found out by
	running through the debugger. Called at Encode.pm line 53 !!!

 50 our %Encoding;
 51 our %ExtModule;
 52 require Encode::Config;
 53 eval { require Encode::ConfigLocal };

	Is this a $^S issue? Yes, as already reported by mark@blackmans.org in


	* top failing module today is MARKSTOS/CGI-Session-4.20. Does not sound
	familiar. But in fact it failed all runs since 30977, both maint and
	blead. I have already reported to cpantesters but most reports were
	PASS. ARRRG, this is the annoying circular data structures problem in
	JSON::Syck. We seem to have a negative dependency on JSON::Syck. But as
	we always install it because it comes with YAML::Syck we see the
	negative report always.

	And now I discover that there is a 4.20_1 since last November. But it
	fails at the same test.

	* 26664 is reopened by Marek and he asks for a chmod before running
	patch. I'd think we should chmod selectively.

	* Jifty caused a hang in the test suite again. I solved it the same way
	as the other times but this time I had to kill an additional ptee
	process which apparently was still waiting. Frightening.

	* B::Generate seems to be broken. It was also already broken at 23023
	which is my first intermediate point to base binary searches on because
	it is faster than 20002. And the interval [20002,23023] is it.

eval q{use B::Generate 1.06};
print $@ ? "N/A" : "OK";
print "\n";

----EOF ($?='0')----

	* JAW/Devel-Profile-1.05.tar.gz looks like a candidate for a binary search.

	It is OK on maint and fails on blead since 30950 (the earliest I have
	ATM). But 23023 fails the same way. So we slip into the [22682,22741]
	interval and binary search starts building new old perls.

	* MCMAHON!Devel-Command-0.08.xml consistently succeeds with maint and
	fails with blead.

	The test always says: "Your Perl can't be patched by Devel::Command"

	It's about the debugger and Module::Pluggable is involved but the README
	does not talk about what these perldb extensions are. All manpages also
	refuse to talk about what they do. They point at each other and talk
	about how they do it but not what *it* is. Weird.

	* Sam Tregar has not only XML::Validator::Schema in the problem zone but
	also DBIx-Timeout. The former has got a BBC article on P5P:


	But the latter? It is on my radar since 20070414T2030 and has always
	failed since. Ah, that's easy, it needs a DBI DSN. For some reason it
	believes that it can connect to mysql.

	Now it got a distropref.

	* package Module::Install::With;

	needs some cooperation from here

2007-05-08  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Perlbal 1.57 maybe needs a binary search although I have mixed success
	in maintperl. But I have never success on blead with "configuration
	error". The failure with maint@31100 is always in t/17-webserver-concat
	and repeating the test several times does not change that. maint@30961
	exposes the same failure and an additional one in 15-webserver.
	maint@30765 has the one in 17 only. maint@30588 succeeds. maint@30210
	again has failure in 15 but not the one in 17. When I repeated the test
	it succeeded.

	_S_IFMT and S_IFDIR and S_IFREG are involved in the failure in the 17X


	where Alex Tourbin posts 'fixed Fcntl::S_IFMT() breakage introduced by
	change 30674 (blead 26701)'

	Aha. So this is it and the chapter is not yet closed.

	To run a binary search we probably must exclude the flaky test 15x. And
	then 45x and 12x turn out to be flaky as well.

	Does not work out. The root seems to be older than 20000 and then LWP
	failures masq the Perlbal failures. I must come up with a bit phantasy.
	* RMUHLE/classes-0.943.tar.gz needs a binary search

	It turns out that the test results are only negative when
	Test::Exception is installed, otherwise they are OK. So to run a binary
	search one would have to install Test::Exception and uninstall all
	instances of classes.pm we have at the moment. Hrmmmm.

	Well, when I take 5.8.8 and install Test::Exception and then test
	classes.pm it succeeds. I removed all installed classes.pm under blead
	and started a binary search with @22323 as lower boundary. 20002 was
	unsuited because it took so long to compile zlib stuff and then fail.
	But 22323 suffers from the same problem. But then, we're through, it is
	suited for this binary search run.



	And a separate bug report about the fact the Test::Exception itself is
	not in the dependencies:


	* EDPRATOMO/Algorithm-Permute-0.06.tar.gz needs a binary search.

	REPORTED to P5P and author. BBC article:


	* PETDANCE/Template-Timer-0.04: I'm already used to seeing it fail. But
	I just discovered that there were 4 consecutive sessions where it

20070430T1340 perl          31107  634 NOT OK
20070501T0032 perl          31110  760 OK
20070501T1746 perl          31111  769 OK
20070502T0515 perl          31113  416 OK
20070502T1604 perl          31117  431 OK
20070502T2300 perl          31120  505 NOT OK

	It is not that simple that Template were missing. There is something
	else going on.

	* Apache-Session started to have a Semaphore problem recently:

20070417T1509 perl          30970  116 OK
20070417T2056 perl          30971    0 OK
20070418T2250 perl          30977  145 NOT OK

	The semaphore tells us:

t/99flex...........Permission denied at /home/sand/.cpan/build/Apache-Session-1.82-jeBTMQ/blib/lib/Apache/Session/Lock/Semaphore.pm line 92.
        (in cleanup) Permission denied at /home/sand/.cpan/build/Apache-Session-1.82-jeBTMQ/blib/lib/Apache/Session/Lock/Semaphore.pm line 92.

	When I run the same test as user k it works.

	The IPC::Semaphore manpage says:

If you get an invalid argument message, that usually means that the system
is unhappy with the number of semaphores that you requested.  Try decreasing
the number of semaphores.  The semaphore blocks that this package creates
are persistent until the system is rebooted, so if you request 8 sempahores
one time and 16 sempahores the next, it won't work.  Use the system
commands ipcs and ipcrm to inspect and remove unwanted semphore blocks.

	Let's do that!... Done and now Apache-Session passes all tests and
	report is written to cpantesters. Phew! Apologies for the bogus report
	if anybody reads this.

2007-05-06  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* RRWO/CPAN-YACSmoke-0.03.tar.gz also broke recently

20070422T1717 perl          31019  817 OK
20070423T0905 maint-5.8     31011    0 NOT OK
20070423T1448 perl          31029  284 NOT OK

	That's a normal dependency on Regexp::Assemble. But why on maint? This
	was a dependency on the (then) broken CPANPLUS.

	And why do I have no maint result since then? Because CPANPLUS is still
	recursively dependent on itself.

	* ROBM/Cache-FastMmap-1.14.tar.gz came under the wheels:

20070417T1509 perl          30970  583 OK
20070418T2250 perl          30977  424 NOT OK


	One should really run the whole megainstall with a random userid to find
	more of these bugs.

2007-05-05  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Jarkko's Graph is now seismograph and consistently failing apparently
	starting with 31105. But there was another interval where it failed!
	That interval started with 31079:

eval q{use Graph 0.81};
print $@ ? "N/A" : "OK";
print "\n";

----Output of .../pnKRDVH/perl-5.8.0@31078/bin/perl----

----EOF ($?='0')----
----Output of .../pGHaMwh/perl-5.8.0@31079/bin/perl----

----EOF ($?='0')----

	and ended with 31104. But 31105 is an impossible candidate for a
	breaker. Maybe we must pay attn to the date once more?

20070428T1842 perl          31104    0 OK
20070429T0705 perl          31105    0 NOT OK

	So what changed between the two perls?


	Heap           0.71   => 0.80
	Module::Build  0.2807 => 0.2808
	Math::BaseCalc ???    => 1.011

	Yes, downgrading Heap fixes it. http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26943

	* Locale::TextDomain seems to have been fixed or improved some day (30971) but
	it still fails occasionally.

	* JSON 1.12 needed a binary search and it ended with

	Reorder the SV flags so that SVp_?OK and SVf_?OK occupy 8 contiguous
	bits (0x0000XX00). This makes perl 3K smaller with -Os on x86 FreeBSD,
	and might also help on other architectures (eg with 8 contiguous bits,
	the SvOK() test on ARM won't need an intermediate constant).

2007-05-04  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Gtk2 has the dependency ExtUtils::Depends as I discovered today and
	then Glib.pm. Both not mentioned in the prereq decl or maybe mentioned
	in the Makefile.PL but PREREQ_FATAL is set and MakeMaker still does not
	let me override it.

	A small patch now at least lets me install the prereqs and demonstrates
	nicely that configure_requires is really needed.

	Annoyingly it says

*** can not find package gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.0
*** check that it is properly installed and available in PKG_CONFIG_PATH
 at Makefile.PL line 69

	And I cannot find out which package I have to install on debian and I
	remember that on previous occasions I did not find out the problem

	The message above comes from ExtUtils::PkgConfig. Maybe it is broken?

	Maybe I must remove libgtk 1.2 first?

	Nope. Test program insists:

% /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/p2VJt9O/perl-5.8.0@31136/bin/perl -le '
use ExtUtils::PkgConfig; 
$package ="gtk+-2.0";
%pkg_info = ExtUtils::PkgConfig->find ($package); 
*** can not find package gtk+-2.0
*** check that it is properly installed and available in PKG_CONFIG_PATH
 at -e line 4

	I put the patch into the patches directory and give up for now.

	* make a release for Adam and send it to him before actually releasing

	* Net::Libdnet on debian needs to change d to dumb in two spots:

	That runs all tests OK. That should be wrapped into a DEFINE.

	See further below for a similar example on 2007-04-01. I must now kill

	OR NO! much better I first try to input something in the interactive

	I find the job that hange by stepping down the pid->ppid chain (pstree

It turns out that the test only fails when run under CPAN::Reporter.
Somehow the IO layer that CPAN::Reporter uses fools Term::Size::Unix
so that the test fails.

I can reproduce a similar effect by simply running

    make test > /dev/null < /dev/null

The STDERR of this is:

  $ make test > /dev/null < /dev/null

	* the logfile is 34MB instead of 11, who is to blame? 20070424T2309 has
	197018 lines while 20070424T0304 had 151351. There must be one very log
	line? No. The longest line in each case is 4145. I need the distribution
	of the lengths and here I discover 44719 lines with the same length, 507

	It is a database dump or some such with the columns


	with lots of whitespace. This comes out in the middle of the tests of
	PJCJ/Devel-Cover-0.61.tar.gz. There seems to be a call to eq_or_diff
	when t/at1.t fails and this spits out >22MB.

	This was between 31046 and 31058.

	This binary search must run at1.t and capture its output and output
	something like 'length $output < 100000 ? "ok" : "not ok"'.

DIED. FAILED tests 9-29
        Failed 21/29 tests, 27.59% okay

	I first noticed it with Params::Util. 

	20070419T1942 was the first one to fail, so it happened between

	20070419T1622 perl        30979
	20070419T1942 perl        30985

	Only 8 tests out of my 880 distributions fail with this regression:

	Params::Util, Graph (3 tests), 

	Then Algorithm::Dependency tries again to test Params::Util 4 times. Why
	4 times?

	First time during make because I forgot to set PERL_AUTOINSTALL=--skip.
	It seems to choose CPANPLUS to do the job, maybe because I have set
	CPANPLUS_IS_RUNNING? CPANPLUS then runs make test on Params::Util twice.
	Then CPANPLUS gives up with

*** Params::Util installation cancelled.
*** Module::AutoInstall installation finished.

	Then CPAN.pm reaches 'make test' and Module::Autoinstall or something is
	called again from the Makefile and CPANPLUS runs the test on
	Params::Util twice again just to reach the same conclusion.

	The regression in blead is reported to P5P. The thing with
	Module::Install has no place where it should be directed. Rantbox?

	* The kwalify test also fails on 5.8.0 with YAML 0.39. Which YAML has my
	5.6.2? None, only YAML::Syck 0.84 which was a regression. Trying to
	compile 0.85 fails already during its own tests on 5.6.2. 0.82 ditto. So
	is it time to install 0.85 with force? Yes, but with this the test in
	12cpan still fails. Maybe I should ask the question the other way round.
	If we downgrade YAML to 0.39, can we then reproduce the bug with 5.9.5?
	Trying with blead@31000: make test OK; make run + install
	INGY/YAML-0.39.tar.gz OK; make test OK.

	* Offtopic: Marc's patch for pack 'C' applied on top of 30952. Path:

	* Coro: in the logfile for 30943 I see that Coro did not build and did
	not install Coro::Event. Consequently, Continuity failed its tests. What
	might be the reason? On later retry, Coro built and installed both Coro
	and Coro::Event. Seeing the prereqs NOW, they contain

                                                  'AnyEvent' => '2.51',
                                                  'Event' => '1.06',

                                                  'Scalar::Util' => '0'

	And here is the relevant output of Marc's Makefile.PL:

Warning: prerequisite AnyEvent 2.51 not found.
Warning: prerequisite Event 1.06 not found.
Warning: prerequisite IO::AIO 2.3 not found.

*** Event not found, not build Event support.

	This seems like a bug to me. He should ask if Event support is wanted
	and if yes, make Event a prerequisite. At least from my point of view he
	should do so.

	It has already lead to a wrong bugreport by chris on cpantesters.

	And I have now written to Marc (with CC cpantesters) if he would change
	things accordingly). Miscommunication happened and so I need to give up:-(

	* Locale::TextDomain needs a binary search. Yay, the first one for a
	long time that goes back before 20000. We are compiling perls in the

	17075 do not want to be compiled!

	This needs more attention. Yes, it's DB_File that fails nowadays with
	these old perls. And we always used -Ui_db. For binsearchaperl the full
	argument then is

	--config="-Dinstallusrbinperl=n -Uversiononly -Doptimize=-g -des -Duse64bitint -Dusedevel -Ui_db"

eval {require Locale::TextDomain};

	From: "Craig A. Berry" <craigberry@mac.com>

	Message-Id: <a05111703b91c44a6865f@[]>

	Impossible. This patches a test file in core perl, this cannot have
	consequences on user code.

	So it's likely to depend on a module.

	diff -u =(sort /home/k/.cpan/Bundle/Snapshot_2007_04_14_00.pm) =(sort /home/k/.cpan/Bundle/Snapshot_2007_04_14_01.pm) | less

	Nothing obvious. So let's study the test itself.

	It's about how the Austrians say to the month February. Why on earth is
	16904 able to dig that word "Feber" out of the locale system but 16905
	not? The files that contain "Feber" are specifically being delivered by
	Locale::TextDomain, so seem not dependent on my Linux version or the
	state of my locale installations.

	https://rt.cpan.org/Dist/Display.html?Queue=libintl-perl  is empty.

	So if I cannot find a negative module dependency, it's something in

	Wow: my 16904 was compiled on Gentoo! But comparing the configs does not
	reveal anything yet.

	Maybe it helps to run the same program in two debuggers step by step?

	One day has passed and when I retry today in a fresh directory, then
	both 16904 and 16905 succeed on this test while 30952 fails. Heisenbug?

	I'll start with a new binary search. Apparently I did something wrong
	yesterday. I realize comments in the test output that escaped me
	yesterday. The new test script filters those comments out

	With this I'm told that 29052 succeeds but 29053 fails with an Assertion
	failure. I rerun with new boundary and now the assertion failure did not
	go away up to 29543 and 29544 was then failing on the

	So this seems more logical and proves yesterday's recherche was bogus,
	most probably not a Heisenbug.

	Update 2007-05-05 akoenig: Locale::TextDomain succeeded @31148!

	* 30941 is a suspicious patch file. It mixes perl and maint-5.8 branches
	in one patch and contains an "edit" without a diff following. As a
	consequence I get a "maint" and a "perl" versions of 30941 which seems
	pretty uniq afair. Need to further investigate.

	* Hatena::Keyword seems to need a binary search: maint@30874 is "OK",
	blead isn't. But the search cannot start with 20002 because prereq Jcode
	fails there. Need to add Cache::File to the prep script because it is an
	undecl prereq (already reported as
	https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23684). blead@23963 is fine
	with Jcode and H:K. The error message hints at LWP::Protocol. We should
	verify that this is not a "dependent" failure.

eval q{use Hatena::Keyword 0.04};
print $@ ? "N/A" : "OK";
print "\n";

----Output of .../p35sQ2r/perl-5.8.0@23964/bin/perl----

----EOF ($?='0')----

	But take care, this 23964 failed on all of 00-load, 01-methods and
	02-caching.t (every time with "Can't locate RPC/XML.pm"). So this binary
	search was worthless. I think we must now find out when XML::RPC started
	working again. Please do not confuse XML::RPC and RCP::XML! But it's
	strange anyway because both modules run and install well under 23964.
	Now, when I retry the very first binarysearch, it says both 23983 and
	30943 fail. Cool. So we need 23964 against 23983? Yes, on retry, 23964
	succeeds and 23983 fails. And the new binary point of balance is
	2396[45]! When I now apply this balance point against 99999 via
	RPC::XML, then ***lots*** of compiling, testing, and installing is being
	done. And we "jump" to what? 29099/29100, such a wide jump! But it has
	to do with LWP that RPC::XML does not even build. Apparently is LWP an
	undeclared configure_requires (which is not even implemented yet). When
	I add LWP to the prep-RPC-XML.pl script? Then both 23965 and 30943 work
	and there is no binary search. But if I now add both LWP and RPC::XML,
	in that order, to the prep-Hatena-Keyword.pl? 23965 succeeds and 30943
	fails and binary search starts. When we reach [24003,24023] it needs to
	build perls.

	* Nick denies 30900's responsibility. Something else must be it because
	he sees the crazy loop going back to 30000. So I must gather facts now.

	MIME-tools is a distribution, not a module. Which module represents
	MIME-tools? -- MIME::Body
	Which perls between 30000 and 30900 have MIME::Body installed? -- 30383,
	30384, 30388, 30391, 30392, 30393, 30394, 30399, 30402, 30405, 30408,
	30413, 30414, 30415, 30418, 30419, 30420, 30884, 30888, 30898

	Which logfiles have been written for those versions? --
	30383=>20070223T2127, 30384=>20070224T1000, 30388=>20070224T1500,
	30391=>20070224T1957, 30392=>20070225T0045, 30393=>20070225T0524,
	30394=>20070225T1622, 30399=>20070225T2121, 30402=>20070226T0344,
	30405=>20070226T0904, 30408=>20070226T1412, 30413=>20070226T1902,
	30414=>20070227T0414, 30415=>20070227T1355, 30418=>20070227T1856,
	30419=>20070227T2342, 30420=>20070228T0417, 30884=>20070410T1050,
	30888=>20070410T1614, 30898=>20070410T2143

	The large gap after 30420 jumps into my eyes. What was the next logfile
	after that? And for which patch? -- 20070228T1244 for 30428

	And the last before 30844? -- 20070409T1809 for 30875

	Did the tests in the succeeding runs really succeed on Entity.t or did
	they probably skip it? -- All of above cited successful tests were
	reported as "....ok" for Entity.t. All others complained "Can't locate
	Mail/Internet.pm in @INC". I should point out that I had banned
	Mail::Internet from being installed most of the time.

	So which versions of MIME::Body and Mail::Internet did gain the cited
	successes above? -- MIME::Body was always 5.42. For Mail::Internet it
	was from 30383 up to 30420 the module version 1.74 and from 30884 up to
	30898 it was 1.76.

	Would you mind installing Mail::Internet and MIME::Body for 30428 and
	report? -- For Mail::Internet CPAN.pm chose MARKOV/MailTools-1.76.tar.gz
	to install and it succeeded. For MIME::Body it chose
	DSKOLL/MIME-tools-5.420.tar.gz and it succeeded.

	Would you do the same for 30875? -- I did with the same result.

	* Algorithm::Partition comes with a test "99-kwalitee".

use Test::More;

eval { require Test::Kwalitee; Test::Kwalitee->import };

plan( skip_all => 'Test::Kwalitee not installed; skipping' ) if $@;

	Ha, what a gem I haven't noticed yet!

	* Mail::Send has a new release and I just used it to report its own test
	with 30898 and another one for Continuity. We'll have to check for
	success later. -- No success.

	without scanning as soon as we know we are above the limit.

	* Maybe add a depends keyword to distroprefs because the number of
	missing dependency declarations in modules does not decrease despite all

	* For the Todo from David Golden: On installation of a distribution,

	Very good idea. But I had to answer:

But it will need some refinement because the
'reload cpan' command only checks for a static list of modules. It's
in my Todo file now and will be dealt with after 1.90.

	Maybe we just reload whatever we have loaded at the moment? Dangerous?

	* Feature request by self: The bad performance of YAML.pm seems to be a
	showstopper. YAML.pm needs to be banned or disabling of YAML operations
	should be possible, don't know exactly how.

	* IAMCAL/XML-Parser-Lite-Tree-0.03.tar.gz fails when called early,
	succeeds when called late?

	Yes, this is the case. Because X:P:L:T depend on XML::Parser::Lite.
	PAUSE has indexed BYRNE/SOAP/SOAP-Lite-0.60a.tar.gz for that, but I have
	disabled the installation of this distro, so we fail quickly with a
	missing dependency.

	But during megainstall somebody installs X:P:L 0.65_3 and solves the
	problem for X:P:L:T. So who is it? With locate I find this:

	% ls -l /home/ftp/pub/PAUSE/authors/id/H/HE/HEX/XML-Parser-Lite-0.66.tar.gz
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 4388 Jan 31 13:53 /home/ftp/pub/PAUSE/authors/id/H/HE/HEX/XML-Parser-Lite-0.66.tar.gz

	But when going through the logfile, I find that SOAP-Lite-0.69 has
	installed it. Is my logfile the only one who knows who installed what?
	What a sad story. It's getting even worse when we realize that nobody
	discovers who overwrote which previous version!

	I must ask HEX if this is all as intended. DONE.

	We should also institutionalize a place where FAILED reports of the
	PAUSE indexer are directed to. We receive 3 every day and nobody cares
	about them, not even the authors.

	I also need to understand how I can speed up Gnus on large, rarely
	visited mailboxes. It is extremely slow on my pause mailbox and I cannot
	simply catchup on that as I do with the lookslikespam mailbox.

	And how do I deal with the X:P:L:T dependency in exactly this situation?
	It's not a goto. We need to patch up the dependency: instead of X:P:L it
	would have to be BYRNE/SOAP-Lite-0.69.tar.gz for now. But this would
	have to be removed as soon as HEX gets the index entry. Well, I think we
	have to pass on this one. Pity.

	And we have a similar issue with Flickr::API which also depends on
	XML::Parser::Lite::Tree (but which still fails tests, even if we resolve
	the X:P:L dependency).

	I think it's best described as a pseudo dependency. It depends on a
	thing that is contained in another but this other thing hides this (with
	the underscore in the version number).

	As was the case before we had distroprefs, externally known dependencies
	are best handled by bundle files. My "bundle file" here is the
	MEGA_INSTALL macro in my Makefile.PL. I simply add SOAP::Lite _before_

	* Integrate hosts into $META like authors, distributions, and modules?
	If we're cautious, this might turn into an automatic optimization.

	If Coro does index downloads for us, we do not have to fear slow
	connections and can gather better data.

	* Guessing of -p0/-p1 for patch maybe wrong if the patch tries to create
	a new file against, say, /dev/null.

	* Would be nice: integrate the config variable name into the init
	dialogs such that one has a chance to learn their names over time.

	* Would be nice: 'o conf /check/' to list all variables matching a regex.

	* Todo: offer the choice between (readline) Gnu and Perl and Coro. See
	my trials in the bin/ directory (SVN only). Possibly this is done via
	envariables? Then we only should document it.

	* Mail::Send problem persists that Test::Reporter's mails do not arrive
	when sent with Mail::Send but do when sent with Net::SMTP (IIRC). In any

	verify the behaviour. Reported by Slaven Rezic on behalf of Tino
	Schulze. This has nothing to do with -I. but only with the shell and
	$ENV{PATH} and as we do not know which shell it was it seems we cannot

	What am I missing?

	The other commands dealing with files would have to learn a bit.

	d http://      # fails as before with "No objects of...."

	               # alt: does a HEAD and tells user that the URL can e reached

	ls http://     # lists nothing

	               # alt: says that ls doesn't support URLs

	get http://    # this is probably all we need to implement. Maybe a new
	               # class needed that does as_string and as_glimpse as well?

	And maybe a pragma that turns this feature on? So that 'get http://...'
	never works but 'force get http://...' does? Alt: config variable to
	turn feature on, then a separate module that implements it.

	Brian likes the idea

	* looping in installation: Dist-DCC
	(DMAKI/DateTime-Calendar-Chinese-0.05.tar.gz) install() calls test which
	calls make. This encounters 4 prereq (DES, DEC, DUAM, DUAC). The first
	two of those have already failed tests but we continue anyway. The other
	two are re-queued, the "later" flag on D is set. So we leave
	make/test/install early due to the later flag. As soon as we hav left
	the first position of the queue, the later flag is cleared. DUAM quickly
	decides that it is already installed. DUAC ditto. Dist-DCC is now again
	the first on the queue. It calls install/test/make again. Look, the
	later flag is cleared already, so nothing prevents us from looping

	So the bug seems to be that we rely on the module installation of DUAM
	and DUAC to recognisably either fail or succeed. But DUAM and DUAC seem
	to be not installed and installed at the same time. The Moon.pm and
	Common.pm files are found, their versions are considered "undef". But
	the distro they are in, Dist-DUA-0.08 considers itself already
	installed. What has happened to it? Indeed I can see that Dist-DUA-0.08
	has been installed. Why do we not recognize their installed version?

    $VERSION = $DateTime::Util::Astro::VERSION;

	So this is the root cause. The PAUSE indexer somehow determined 0.04
	being the version. One bug must have happened over there. But we should
	not run into a loop just because of this.

	Until recently we broke out of this loop because we set and consulted
	is_tested. But this left us in the is_tested state leading to the
	"Prepending" bug.

	As we now (correctly) reserved the is_tested/is_installed stuff
	exclusively for the task of prepending to PERL5LIB, we now need
	something similar for finer control over prereq menagement than "later"
	and undelay provide.

	I do not want to use "later" for this because it already does something
	OK and needs a short lifespan. (For the record: leave test and install
	early when we discover that we have to deal with prereqs first).

	But now the first thing I need is a recipe how to reproduce the loop
	bug: new bleadperl + Bundle::CPANxxl. install
	DMAKI/DateTime-Calendar-Chinese-0.05.tar.gz triggers many installs and
	soon fails nicely with

  ./Build test -- NOT OK
Running Build install
  make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
Failed during this command:
 DMAKI/DateTime-Util-Astro-0.08.tar.gz        : make_test NO
 DMAKI/DateTime-Util-Astro-0.09.tar.gz        : make_test NO
 DMAKI/DateTime-Event-Lunar-0.05.tar.gz       : make_test NO
 DMAKI/DateTime-Event-SolarTerm-0.04.tar.gz   : make_test NO
 DMAKI/DateTime-Event-Chinese-0.04.tar.gz     : make_test NO
 DMAKI/DateTime-Calendar-Chinese-0.05.tar.gz  : make_test NO

	So mayby with the advent of DMAKI/DateTime-Util-Astro-0.09.tar.gz the
	loop is gone? Looking into the distro I find the 

	$VERSION = $DateTime::Util::Astro::VERSION;

	dictum in all files, so the saga continues. Maybe I can reproduce the
	bug if I disable 0.09? No. If instead I "goto(0.08)" and turn
	build_dir_reuse off? No. If I manually set the $VERSION of DUAC and DUAM
	to undef? No.

	My current blead@30849 can reproduce the bug. Backup. On that perl
	installation it is enough to

	  install DMAKI/DateTime-Calendar-Chinese-0.05.tar.gz

	to enter the loop. The solution is the sponsored_modules attribute which
	is already used to prevent re-testing within one command. So now we
	prevent re-installing too.

	Now I got it. If for whatever reason we have another "test" after an
	"install", we enter is_tested again but do not leave it because install
	is "already done".

	What's the fix? Either do not enter again or always leave even when
	"already done". The former is not easy or even impossible because we
	never know that a distribution is already installed. We only know it for
	modules. So the second solution is the better.

Cannot resolve.

	Need to relax the dependency check for self?


	* YAML::Tiny 1.04?

	Now that YAML::Syck is broken, YAML::Tiny tests also fail. It seems
	because they compare Syck with Tiny.

	* Try newer apache for mod_perl (Current is 1.3.37!)

	* Try out outline mode for Changes file

	* The "Prepending" bug: Prepending /home/k/.cpan/build/XML-LibXML-1.62-yZpjGO/blib/arch /home/k/.cpan/build/XML-LibXML-1.62-yZpjGO/blib/lib /home/k/.cpan/build/Apache-Session-1.82-idoFjK/blib/arch /home/k/.cpan/build/Apache-Session-1.82-idoFjK/blib/lib /home/k/.cpan/build/mod_perl-1.30-YPYnZK/blib/arch /home/k/.cpan/build/mod_perl-1.30-YPYnZK/blib/lib to PERL5LIB for 'test'

	This gathering is always around more or less of the same modules. And
	today (megainstall.20070403T0058.out) I did not run a parallel shell
	session, so the problem builds up from some other forces. It started
	with mod_perl, then Apache-Session joined the club and then XML::LibXML.

	YAY, mod_perl is a real problem: installation fails because the apache
	part wants to install its deputies into /usr/local where I have no
	permissions. Need to revisit the parameters I can influence.

	So next problem child is Apache-Session. I find no line in the output
	(yet?) that would explain the problem but a suspect it's simply due to
	the mod_perl dependency. Nope. Only declared prereqs are

	Same for 30824. But when I repeat the 'm' command after that, it works.

	There must be a yaml file that breaks something. Needs further investigation.

	The broken YAML file is ~/.cpan/build/DBD-SQLite-1.13-Hqur1h.yml which
	fails at line 30/31:

 29   prefs:
 30     comment: '\nBecause the Makefile.PL depends on having DBI installed we w    ant to\nlet them build DBI and then rerun perl Makefile.PL and then make"\n\    nIt\'s a crazy example that I do not really like.

 31     install: {}

	YAML::LoadFile isn't accepting this as valid YAML either. So who wrote
	it? It was written by YAML::Syck 0.84.


2007-04-01  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* The HTTP::Body failing test is interesting. It's a loop over 11 cases
	with 5 tests on each. We get one "ok" and the next line in the code is
	an is_deeply() which consumes memory until exhausted.

	Replacing YAML with YAML::Syck resolves the problem. But running the
	program in the debugger with YAML also resolves it.


	Also posted to P5P.

	* Much worse, I just discover that the last run of megainstall hangs and
	it is not obvious where.

	It has to do with Jifty and lsof says it has
	/home/k/.cpan/build/Jifty-0.70117-rnNlvG/t/Mapper as the CWD.

	The last lines in the output file are

		 Calling 'column' within a schema class is deprecated:

				package Jifty::Model::Session::Schema;
				column session_id => ...;        # NOT VALID

		 Please write this instead:

				package Jifty::Model::Session;
				use Jifty::DBI::Schema;
				use Jifty::Record schema {
						column session_id => ...;    # VALID

		 Sorry for the inconvenience.

	I kill the hanging test and hope to remember this problem next time

	And the major Todo here is to give an alert when such things happen.

	* Apache resurrected!

	But I see a bug or two:

2007-03-31  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Tcl-0.91

	When was Tcl updated last time?      2006-11-13

	When was Tcl added to megainstall?   SVK rev. 2016 on 2007-03-04

	When did Tcl start failing?          20070330T2346 (@30791)

	What is the failure saying?          t/call.........Tcl_InitNotifier: unable to ...
	                                     start notifier thread...dubious...and many ...
	                                     such messages

	Binary search says?                  First try against 30402 says that 30402 also fails

	Do we have a counter example?        20070305T0316 (@30463)

	What the latest counterexample?      megainstall.20070329T1818.out.term (@30777)

	cmp autobundle 30777/30791?          Snapshot_2007_03_31_0[01].pm too many differences.
	                                     I blame the extra tests I did for 30777

	cmp autobundle 30776/30806?          Snapshot_2007_04_01_0[01].pm also many differences.

	Are there google results on the
	error message "Tcl_InitNotifier:
	unable to start notifier thread"?    Plenty.

	I suppose my box upgrade on 0328 triggered some tcl breakage and I can
	ignore the issue from bleadperl's viewing angle.

	* Spreadsheet-ParseExcel-0.29


	* Getopt ArgvFile 1.10

	No update since 2005. It seems to me the test now fails due to CPAN.pm's
	renaming of the root directories.


	* AltaVista::BabelFish 42.0.1

	tests OK but CPAN.pm complains about an unfulfilled dependency,
	IO::Redirect. CPAN.pm does no know about IO::Redirect. Ticket in RT


	* Net::Twitter 1.04

	testers has a pass, no fails. No bugreports in RT. It fails because
	JSON::Any fails. And JSON::Any fails because of a POD bug uncovered by
	Test::Pod or some such. Uh, oh!


	* Devel::ebug 0.47

	Nothing blead related in RT. Tests ok with 30804. On retry installs
	successfully also with 30791. The error in the logfile is a YAML thing.


	* Template::Timer 0.04, don't know where it comes from.

	It's been uploaded in 2005 and does profiling on TT. Catalyst-View-TT
	may have brought that in but who brought us that? Need to look into RT
	which is down at the moment. There is one bugreport about strange
	behaviour with 5.9.2 but no followup. Here it fails with 20002 too and
	with 16904.

	Cannot imagine what the problem is. Maybe som TT internal thing and
	older versions of Template did something differently.


	* HTTP::Body 0.9 broken too.

	Ahh, this is the already reported YAML bug.

	* CPAN-SQLite from CVS broken too:

	20070326T0114 perl        30754
	20070326T0933 perl        30756

	20070330T2244 perl        30777 B
	20070330T2346 perl        30791 B

	A single 'make clean' helped and is now in the LOCAL distroprefs file.

	* Why is this in last night's megainstall (megainstall.20070330T2346.out):

	It seems to indicate that some modules were built and tested
	successfully and await installation. But why did they not get installed?

	I can see elsewhere in the logfile:

  make install UNINST=1 -- OK

  make install UNINST=1 -- OK

  make install UNINST=1 -- OK

	So apparently three times the unsetting of the is_tested flag did not
	work. Do we have a new bug in perl or is it our own bug?

	Going back to February 22, I see the same thing for
	DateTime-Util-Astro-0.08-BsMTev XML-LibXML-1.62-Zi4hvt
	Apache-Session-1.82-3jaGeJ Bit-Vector-6.4-nHiJ0u

	This was less noisy in January, started in February, so I suppose our
	own bug:(

2007-03-30  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Perlbal fails all over since we have it in megainstall at

	Why are there some logfiles without a broken Perlbal?

	B for broken:

	B 20070323T0231 perl        30700

	The two gpg failures/terminated questions are suspicious. I rename them
	to .out.term so they do not lead to confusion.

	* Perlbal failing with maintperl, bleadperl (very different failure
	modes). 2 reports sent (as k), check which arrived!

	And 5.8.8 failed the first time but succeeded the second time. Binary
	search impossible because sometimes it hangs. Too fragile: hanging test
	45 for example. Maybe the prerequisites not tight enough?

	* Verilog-Perl a.k.a. Verilog::Language broke some day but not on perl
	but on some other module most probably. I spent a long time
	investigating and still no good plan how to identify the problem.
	There's quite a bit to read further down on 2007-02-17.

	2007-03-28 akoenig: 2007-01-27/28 the tests started failing.

	Now this: back in February I proved it is not perl. Now I proved, it is
	something based on date, not perl version. So something else was updated
	that evening, either a distro or a distroprefs file.

	It is GetOpt-Long-2.36!

	Now I wrote a bug report and RT answers with an internal server error.
	Bug report lost? Fortunately no:


	* David Golden sent me this link to perlmonks
	http://perlmonks.org/?node_id=603402 and we have since fixed the
	documentation in perlrun or so. Need to come back to monks and report
	this success. DONE.

	* Todo: shuffle the Todo list so that it is useable again

	* Jifty seems to hang in the test 

	/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pWbnf63/perl-5.8.0@30754/bin/perl -w t/Mapper/t/02-api.t

	I must kill the associated process because it is standing still since
	2:48 and now it is 5:25. Will have to be seen again before we can take
	some action.

2007-03-25  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug: the notest pragma seems to be sticky. I encounter today that I
	cannot test Module::Build with the error message:

Skipping test because of notest pragma

	I do not know who sets it. Even after 'fforce get' it is set.

	After removing all Module-Build*.yml files in the build directory the
	problem goes away. Apparently we restore the pragma from a previous
	session... UHHH. Bug!

	Fixed in SVK rev. 2112 or so.

	* Todo: XUL::Node is some POE stuff and asks two questions

	* rxvt-unicode current version is @ 8.2, debian's is @ 7.9

	* Todo: post a working patch against Danga-Socket based on Dan Kogai's


2007-03-24  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* screencast still in idea stage: Slaven suggests to write an abstract
	widget as described in Tk::mega. This shall then use a text widget and
	only implement a few things like add_character, delay, add_line. Each
	shall then be passed through to the text widget. If our needs cannot be
	fulfilled by the text widget, we can still switch later to a canvas

	Further methods needed to make TAB behaviour visible. Both on capture
	and on output tricky. Does screen capture the TAB with its built-in? No.

	It's a drag. It turns me off. It seems the only software that does it
	right might be xterm itself? Ask Marc if rxvt can do it? DONE

2007-03-23  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* rt.cpan.org #25627 is awaiting further thoughts.

2007-03-21  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* I just discovered Term::ReadLine::Zoid by Jaap Karssenberg (PARDUS).
	It seems to work if the prompt is a string, it fails if it is an
	overloaded string. E.g.:

	PERL_RL=Zoid /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/*/p*/perl-5*@30598/bin/perl -Ilib -MCPAN -e 'shell("zoid> ")'
CPAN: File::HomeDir loaded ok (v0.64)
CPAN: Term::ANSIColor loaded ok (v1.11)

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.8879)
ReadLine support enabled

zoid> q
Lockfile removed.

	But it starts in vi mode so immediately turns me off.
	PERL_RL=Zoid::Emacs works better.

	See also Zoidberg, the Perl shell. It seems to need a binary search. Or
	two! First it failed a test in blead which passes with ~29000. But with
	~29000 it's misbehaving during installation because it wants to write to
	/etc/. Maybe a Module::Build problem. With ~23000 it is installable.
	Strange. After a few hours we reach the area 2809[45] and the diffs
	indicate that we must be chasing a red herring. Usually we detect this
	by removing the older of the two involved perls and restarting the
	binary search and then comparing the profile of installed modules and
	their versions near the old and the new borderline. As we have no idea
	which modules to watch we will have to use autobundle.

	28094 succeeds, 95 fails. The patch 28095 is empty (!; see 28097 for
	some kind of explanation). The modules in the old (failing) 28095 are
	documented in Snapshot_2007_03_21_00.pm The first succeeding perl above
	28094 is which? 28100 and its snapshot is Snapshot_2007_03_21_01.pm

	And the first that then fails again is 28101 and I have now to change
	one module after the other to find out which has a bug. The snapshot of
	the 101 is Snapshot_2007_03_21_02.pm.

	Upgrading ExtUtils::MakeMaker from 6.30_02 to 6.32: no success.

	1.41_01 fails its tests
	1.41_02 not ok
	1.41_03 not ok

	[(Sidetrack: Up/downgrading to 1.39_01 does not work. When I go to the
	~/.cpan/build/ExtUtils-Install-1.39_01 and call './Build install' then I
	see just this:

Reading skip patterns from 'INSTALL.SKIP'.
Writing /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/pbN6H8H/perl-5.8.0@28100/lib/site_perl/5.9.4/i686-linux-64int/auto/ExtUtils/Install/.packlist

	I have to remove the INSTALL.SKIP file to install it. After that the
	installation finishes and I get 1.39_01.)]

  Downgrading to 1.39 makes it "work" again. When it comes by zoidrc it says:

Skipping /etc/zoidrc (unchanged)

	Apparently I have this zoidrc since Feb 12 or somebody set the timestamp
	to that. The file belongs to me, so I would be able to overwrite it. The
	failure to install it is a bug in ExtUtils::Install since 1.39_01.


	What's noteworthy is that there seems to be no viable workaround short
	of patching Zoidberg. I cannot find a way to skip the installation step
	of etc/zoidrc. Not with "appdir", not with "distroprefs/*/commandline"
	where I tried to remove some files in the right moment, not with
	"||true" on the commandline because etc/zoidrc comes before the modules.
	Only thing is to disable all ExtUtils::Install after 1.39 and allow 1.39
	and downgrade everywhere. But here my love to Zoidberg is not strong
	enough and I decide to wait for a new release of ExtUtils::Install.

2007-03-20  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug in perldoc when rendering S< > which is being used in
	Tk/pod/mega.pod. It seems the rest of the line is being lost or so.
	tkpod displays it correctly.

	* Todo: screencast into the distro.



	I think I do not like these tools. They may be good for a YouTube video
	but for inclusion in the distro I want a text file that can be replayed,
	not a video. Tk, wx or curses. But maybe with sound. And of course,
	things that need just-in-time-explanation like "Watch now what happens
	when I hit TAB" or "see the result in slow motion now". It's probably
	much harder to produce such a beast than one would think on first sight.

2007-03-19  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Todo: fix wxWidgets to not download 20 MB every time I try to build
	it. [...] Oh well, I removed wxWidgets from MEGA instead.

	* Todo: investigate a bug in Cache.pm. Cache-2.04 failed today but it
	does not fail when I want to report the bug. The error message in the
	logfile was:

	* Retrying now with 5.6.2 from my k account. Worked.

	* Just sent a report for 5.8.3 from my k account and it arrived immediately.

	* report about 5.00504? I forgot that CPAN::Reporter does not run there.
	Lots of prereqs broken on 5.005

	* Report from OSX:

Sending test report with 'pass' to cpan-testers@perl.org
postdrop: warning: unable to look up public/pickup: No such file or directory

	* Report for 5.6.2, where did it get lost? Mail::Send is NOT installed
	(which is good). Net::SMTP is 2.29. 2.30 does not compile because it is
	calling utf8::encode. Will have to retry later.

	* Why is he not sending?

cpan[5]> report ANDK/CPAN-1.88_79.tar.gz
Test report not sent

	I think I had 'send_report' set to 'no'. Retrying after setting it to
	ask/no. Yes, this time it sent a report for 5.9.5 and it arrived.

2007-03-15  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* clean 31sessions.t output and run 30shell without Expect and clean
	that stderr thing too.

	This doesn't seem to be possible to do reliably. As soon as I let STDOUT
	and STDERR be joint with 2>&1 some tests fail. I think I'd prefer to
	have the Test:: stuff refrain from using STDERR alltogether and as long
	as they don't (or can't?) I'll let some STDERR escape.

	And this?

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/k/.cpan/build/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-Failearly-1.02-8r8dgG'

	Ah, if {writemakefile} failed, do not try 'make clean'! DONE

2007-03-14  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Class::MOP needs a binary search because test t/003methods.t fails in
	blead but not in 22000. But a naive binary search discovers breakage in
	t/081_meta_package_extension.t on patch 26370. But we certainly can
	ignore that because this test works again nowadays. So I need a
	distropref to limit tests.

	Learn something new about Module::Build:

	    ./Build test --test_files t/mytest.t

	So now binary search again without the 081 test:

eval {require Class::MOP};
print $@ ? "N/A" : "OK";
print "\n";

2007-03-11  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug: when I ^C a job, then it seems that some "force" is kept around
	for the next command. We must clear all modules, distros and bundles
	from 'force' bits when we let a Signal interrupt us. I'm not actually
	sure this is what happened but I have the impression that it is possible.

	Or maybe we have a different bug. This is the command:

	fforce test DMAKI/DateTime-Calendar-Japanese-0.05.tar.gz

	requires DMAKI/DateTime-Calendar-Japanese-0.05.tar.gz

	This in turn

	  DateTime::Util::Astro::Moon [requires]
    DateTime::Util::Calc [requires]
    DateTime::Util::Astro::Common [requires]
    DateTime::Event::SolarTerm [requires]

	DMAKI/DateTime-Util-Astro-0.08.tar.gz is the first one and it complains
	about Calc missing.

	DMAKI/DateTime-Util-Calc-0.13.tar.gz then complains about nothing, runs
	tests that fail for some reason. So we come back to Astro. This fails
	tests apparently because Calc is missing.

	So then we come to Calc again because it was on the list above. We fail
	the tests again, but I frankly do not understand why they are run at
	all. Normally we do not run a test twice within a single command.

	Then comes Astro again because of DateTime::Util::Astro::Common and
	fails again tests.

	Then we reach the last one on the list, SolarTerm. This again depends on
	Calc, so we build Calc again, fail, test SolarTerm, fail and ***finish***.

	So now my impression is that the setting of $xo->{make} might cause bad
	things to happen because we are not paying attention to the status of
	make/test/install before that, no? No, it's the fforce that make things
	so ugly. Because all parties inherit the fforce, they need to retest so
	often. So probably no bug at all, just ugly.

	* Bug: 

Recursive dependency detected:
 => DateTime::Calendar::Chinese (have: ; requires: 0.02)
 => DMAKI/DateTime-Calendar-Chinese-0.05.tar.gz
 => DateTime::Util::Astro::Moon (have: ; requires: >= 0.04)
 => DMAKI/DateTime-Util-Astro-0.08.tar.gz
 => Math::BigInt (have: 1.77; unknown status)
 => TELS/math/Math-BigInt-1.80.tar.gz
 => bignum (have: 0.17; requires: 0.19)
 => TELS/math/bignum-0.19.tar.gz
 => Math::BigInt (have: 1.77; requires: 1.79).
Cannot resolve.

	All involved parties get the stigma of circular dependency. That seems
	wrong. Only Math::BigInt and bignum should get it.

	OK, I fixed this but now D:Event:SolarTerm, D:U:Calc, D:U:Astro,
	D:Event:Lunar somehow fall into a spiral of unresolvable dependecies and
	are never redeemed from it. No? Maybe I was just impatient.


	* HTML::CalendarMonth is failing but the error output is really large. I
	just tried to report() it and must check later if the mail actually
	arrived. --- It seems this report never arrives.

	* There was a mail from David Cantrell about a failure on OpenBSD which
	I could not imagine any reason for.

	* Continue discussing the perlmonks bug with P5P. Only Schwern has

	* David Golden sends me a link to perlmonks

	It's about 1.8802. This guy does a

	setenv PERL5LIB /home/me/build/perl-addons/inst/usr/local/lib/perl5:/home/me/build/perl-addons/inst/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl

	and sets for the './Build install' command?

	and for 'make install' command?
    Your choice:  [] DESTDIR=/home/me/build/perl-addons/inst

	When he installs Params::Validate, it indeed gets installed into that
	directory but when he asks 

	! use Params::Validate; print "$Params::Validate::VERSION\n"

	he gets an error

	When he quits the shell and enters it again and repeats the command, it
	is OK.

	So the bug is real and reproducable with blead. It seems to be about
	@INC expansion. Before I installed Acme::Meta I had this @INC:

	So apparently I knew too little about @INC population.

	It seems perl 5.8.8 scans the PERL5LIB directories at startup if they
	exist and only populates @INC for directories that either are explicitly
	mentioned or that really exist. The directories .../5.8.8 and
	.../5.8.8/i686-linux-64int are not added as long as they are not

	And apparently I had always relied that perl solves it for me.

	POSTED analysis to P5P with the subject "Composing @INC from PERL5LIB".

	* David Cantrell reports that YAML must be > 0.39 if we want to use it.

	* Oh Joy of having authors who carefully track the dependencies between
	their packages. bignum currently depends on Math::BigInt 1.79. But
	current version is 1.80. But Math-BigIng-1.80 depends on bignum 0.19. So
	if I have 1.77 I must first install 1.79, then I can install bignum and
	only then I can install BigInt 1.80.

	I'm sure some people will call it a bug that CPAN.pm is not able to
	install the old version 1.79 as a dependency of 1.80.

2007-03-03  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* just sent a report about Exporter::Simple. Debugging shows that it was
	sent with Net::SMTP. Same for XML::Compile. Neither arrived at testers.
	Maybe I had a different smtp host then? I do not remember to ever have
	changed it.


	We should try	mx.develooper.com ?

	Tried that with Attribute::Util. Debugging says that it was sending to

	Or maybe I shouldn't have changed my email address?

	Changing back to andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de and reporting
	about UNIVERSAL::exports.

	YES, this was it. So I need to turn the clock back: I have not reported
	anything for quite a while:(

	* whats missing for this release?

	cpan -r bug report      # mail to brian is on the way

	Jost's sun-solaris test # no idea what to do

	can we have RT          # Bundle::RT is in

	and Tcl in megainstall  # DONE

	* my internet access is broken at the moment. When it is back I need to
	answer two posts by Eric Wilhelm.

	* possible bug: when a distroprefs file has "match" but no valid keyword
	under match/, then it seems that it matches always instead of being
	rejected as invalid. We must make the one of the match subthingies
	mandatory. Need to study
	http://www.kuwata-lab.com/kwalify/users-guide.01.html for that when my
	internet is back.

	FIXED in svk rev. 2002 or so.

	* New FAILS from testers: Jost on Sun sees only 4 OKs in 30shell on
	solaris and a dubious. Slaven saw one test in 31sessions failing.

	The Slaven thing can be averted by taking out a piece of the "Expected"
	regexp. DONE

	For the failure on sun I need a different strategy. Something that gives
	more feedback.

	* XML::Simple failed a test today. When I came and tested it again, it
	succeeded. Fortunately the tests spit out helpful diagnostics. Looks
	like XML::SAX must be installed? No, this seems not the problem. So
	maybe a intermittant failure.

2007-02-24  Andreas Koenig  <k@andreas-koenigs-computer.local>

	* jochen stenzel asked me for a comparison of CPAN::Site and dot
	distributions or better said, a summary about the options we have today
	to support modules besides CPAN itself.

	My current favorite is to have all distros that are not on CPAN in a
	repository, check the repository out on the local disk, ideally always
	in the same path/location. Then write a Bundle file that contains all
	"root" directories of these non-distros and install the Bundle. (Note to
	self: need to write detailed instructions how to do all that). The
	advantage of this is that nobody needs to make releases, all code is
	checked out at any point in time and is current. If one needs to make
	sure that the software is in a stable state, this can be achieved with
	the options provided by the revision control software. The disadvantage
	of this method is that CPAN.pm knows nothing about the state of the
	distros, it just installs them and does not keep a record that it did so
	and cannot determine if there is a newer version. If you install the
	Bundle again immediately after you have installed, it just starts from
	the beginning again (rinse, repeat).

	I must try if 'cpan .' also works for a Bundle. I do not think it does.

	Then I must study how CPAN::Site works nowadays. The problem with that
	always was that it required manual work on the side of the maintainer of
	the additional repository.

	Of course, the ideal solution would be if CPAN.pm could just "subscribe"
	to any number of parallel Universes and then mix them with some
	algorithm (first wins; manual conflict resolution; etc.). Still, this
	would require skills on the side of the archive maintainers or muchly
	improved tools for them.

	pip by Adam Kennedy tries to solve the problem (I think) by injecting
	distros/tarballs into the author "LOCAL" directory. Simple quick
	solution but no integration into an index at all, so the same
	disadvantage as the dot distros (rinse,repeat) but with the additional
	(of course very minor) disadvantage that somebody must make releases,
	tar them together and then CPAN.pm has to unroll them again.

2007-02-20  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* scripts installation broken. Tried it with pingomatic and keepcool. FIXED

	* when was notest introduced? In 1.80, December 2005. New features by
	Slaven this year are: 'cpan .', scripts, 'perl -I. -MCPAN' now works.

	* consider different sorting of directory listings. suggested by Slaven.

2007-02-19  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Chris has tested _76: twice OK, once NOT on 31sessions/28th test.

	* Chris has tested _75 and I can see that his shell says the unexpected

	'Unknown shell command \'yes\'. Type ? for help.
	But the "yes" gets eaten earlier too

	Would you like me to configure as much as possible automatically? [yes] yes

	How can it happen that the yes is both consumed and still left over on
	the input?

	Now I have it! He must have set PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT!!!!!!!!!

2007-02-18  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* I'm quite helpless with the 5 reports from chris.

	Apparently the output is from the command N-1 while the shell believes
	to test the command N.

	So the reason could be that the shell asks one more question to chris
	than to me.

	I have tried

	cpanplus with bleadperl on k75
	cpanplus with 5.8.8 on k75
	cpan with 5.8.6 on k78
	cpan with 5.8.8 on dev05
	cpan with 5.8.8 on playground
	cpan 1.7601 with 5.8.7 on k66

	Ahh, the last one has lots of errors. But not the one that chris has.

	* last night Convert::PEM with 30342 went into an endless loop and
	filled the disk. Convert-PEM-0.07-Dlxs3I/ is left over, I had to remove
	the logfile but let's try if report can reconstruct. Of course not,
	because the yml file could not be written. Report starts in a new
	directory and succeeds within seconds. Visiting the left over directory
	from the nightly run also brings no evidence: tests run OK within
	seconds. Oh well.

2007-02-17  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* testers has 5 nearly identical FAILS results on 1.88_74, all made with
	CPANPLUS 0.076, all from chris. The failure goes like this:

#   Failed test 'command[test CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make]'
#   at t/31sessions.t line 170.
#                   '    patch              [ ]
# Please use 'o conf commit' to make the config permanent!
# '
#     doesn't match '/t/00_load.+ok/'

	and I cannot imagine how this can happen.

	So I find myself using CPANPLUS for the very first time since ages.

	I type 'f Verilog::Languange' and CPANPLUS does not seem to answer ever.
	Oh well, after about two minutes it says

    1 Verilog-Perl                                       2.361    WSNYDER   
    2 Verilog-Perl                                       2.371    WSNYDER   

	Cool feature.

	I do the same for CPAN and they answer

	What a strange sorting! And where are the underscores? And when I say 'i
	11' they say

Installing CPAN
*** Install log written to:

Module 'CPAN' installed successfully
No errors installing all modules

	This action took less than a second and I must open that logfile to find
	out that CPAN is already up to date (without version information). And
	above that I do have 1.8873 installed, not 1.8874 so why they do not
	install 1.8874 is not clear.

	But I can test 1.8874 ok and now I have again no idea why the 5 FAILS on

	1.8802 does not seem to have this bug. Ah, but I cannot reproduce it now
	with 1.88_74 either, so it's not always there. Turning off
	cache_metadata does not bring it back.

	I must keep an eye on this but it is no showstopper.

	* Verilog-Perl a.k.a. Verilog::Language broke on patch 30044. The
	failure mode is that the modules themselves compile fine but the output
	of the compiled program 'vppp' differs from the expected one.

	    UPLOAD_DATE  2007-01-23

	Suspiciously young and the patch 30044 appeared on 27th.

   91807 2006-10-02 WSNYDER/Verilog-Perl-2.361.tar.gz
   93591 2007-01-23 WSNYDER/Verilog-Perl-2.371.tar.gz

	I repeat the binary search with nailed down version demand on
	Verilog::Language 2.371 to make sure that the first run was not trapped
	into a difference between the two versions. ... No, it's not a version

	So I made my own 30333 where the sense of the ifdef is turned around to
	say the opposite. It seems to me this is the way it was intended. But no
	success. Even backing out 30044 does not help.

	Now I removed the whole installed 30333, reinstalled it with the backed
	out 30044 patch. (recompiled but not recompiled from scratch). As my
	first module I try Verilog and it fails.

	Now I recompile from scratch. 'make clobber' and start with ./Configure.
	30044 is backed out. No, Verilog remains broken.

	This is impossible. Let me see 30043 again. Yes, it passes all tests.

	And when I now patch perl.h with 30044 straight forward and compile perl
	again and install it and then fforce test Verilog::Language? Then it too
	passes all tests!

	Does ./installperl not overwrite perl.h??? It does overwrite it.

	CCACHE to blame? No, CCACHE_DISABLE makes no difference.

	Something within Verilog must be broken too. It's a preprocessor. It may
	parse header files and draw conclusions.

	Let me repeat:

	30043: ok
	30044: not ok
	30333: not ok

	Apply diff 43:44 to 30043: still ok
	apply diff 44:43 to 30333: still not ok

	So *something* between perl and Verilog does not notice the perl.h
	change and remains in the state it had on the very first compile. Maybe
	this something even survives make clobber.

	"regen" or some such?

	apply diff 44:43 to 30333 and regen: still not ok

	Remove the old 30044 and build one with buildaperl from scratch, no
	extra patching:

	30044: ok

	!!!!! something must have gone wrong when building 30044 the first time,
	so the binary search went wrong too and I was hunting the wrong diff for
	many hours.

	Maybe there is still a race condition in binsearchaperl?

	Remember: if a binary search brings a result that raises doubts, remove
	both perls from installed-perls and their build directory as well and
	rerun the binary search.

	This is even true if there is NO race condition within binsearchaperl.
	It's always possible that some third party installed something that
	disturbs the binary search, like say Carp.pm

	So I start the next binsearch since 30044 now is OK and it diagnoses
	3006{4,7} as the threshold and I decide immediately to remove 30067 to
	run the next binsearch. And it jumped only forward and decided now it
	would be between 3007[26]. It's very clear now that it is not bleadperl
	but some other module that is used by vppp.

	LATER. I must delay further analysis because this can take a long time.

	* Talk: convert a megainstall file to HTML with <pre> and <span
	class="XXX"> and many anchors so that we can jump directly into it. Then
	make HTML slides that jump into that file and into the distroprefs files
	which may need converting too for best lettersize.

	Interestingly, when I do this, rendering of the resulting HTML file is
	too much work for my firefox on linux/Dell/500 MHz. The MacBook is
	several orders of magnitude faster but still a bit painful.

	* in the talk, compare dot distros with pip and Inject.

	* read CPAN::Inject and CPAN::Mini::Inject manpages

	straightforward and modest. No index support, so only distribution

	* read pip manpage:

	directly to it. But nobody gives me the clue howto follow this
	invitation. It *is* subversion. Ah, two levels higher we have the

	    To access the repositories above via Subversion, browse to the
	    location in the repository you want via your web browser and then
	    use that URL with your favorite Subversion client tool. You may
	    asked to enter your username and password for access to any
	    restricted repositories.

	Indeed, I can do

	    % svn co http://svn.phase-n.com/svn/cpan/trunk/pip/ ./

	and when I want to check in, it asks me for username and password. But
	it speaks only http, so no way to use that seriously. No contact address
	on that page either except for a link to the Michael.Sinz homepage.

	Typos: "is available is", "guarentee"

	Missing example of a p5i file in the manpage.

	Ahh, now I understand how it works. Authentication does not go via pause
	(I watched the logfile while logging in with wrong password) but every
	author must get a password from adam directly. So that's OK. It's just
	misleading to say

	* I'm guilty to not have mentioned Devel::Size when we were talking
	about releasing 5.10. It's gone broke when? 29544: Eliminate PVBM

	We need something like this which is from a patch by Nicholas for

	FIXED in http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=24982 and distroprefs.

	* My tests usually are run with perls that are pretty well equipped with
	modules. I should always test with a minimum perl installation. We need
	to provide one. Let's nominate a funny number. 30123.

	31sessions test succeeds with this.

	BUT if I remove Archive::Tar and Compress::Zlib, then it fails. Wonderful.

	FIXED around SVK rev. 1913

	* Today with 30254 I observed HTML::Mason test failure, but only once:

#   Failed test 'cache_self_expire_in'
#   at /home/k/.cpan/build/HTML-Mason-1.35-ecRYhh/blib/lib/HTML/Mason/Tests.pm line 593.
# Looks like you failed 1 test of 20.
	Test returned status 1 (wstat 256, 0x100)
	Failed 1/20 tests, 95.00% okay

	When I started a binary search this same perl succeeded with all tests.
	Go figure.

	* From Adam K:

This is the issue I was talking about before, with regards to mirror

We should probably always flush non-archival files when the mirror changes.

	* Bug: Template-Plugin-Number-Format-1.01 declares prerequisite
	Number::Format with version undef (real undef, not the String undef) and
	it does not get installed before the tests happen. I need a random perl
	that has neither T:P:N:F nor Template nor N:F.

for p in `binsearchaperl --show-cache --bounds 30000-99999 --apcdir /home/src/perl/repoperls/APC --prefix /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls` ; do
  $p -e 'for my $p (qw(Template::Plugin::Number::Format Number::Format Template)){

	* CPAN::Inject fails with 5.8.9-tobe. I tend to believe this happens
	because 5.8.9 has 1.7602 and C:I needs 1.87. Now what is intimidating is
	that when I run under 1.88_73, then CPAN.pm refuses to install CPAN
	saying that it is up to date. While the installed CPAN.pm is outdated,
	the used CPAN.pm is really uptodate. Aha! force install at its best.

	showstopper. YAML.pm needs to be banned or disabling of YAML operations

	* Bug: I have a tar ball of an already installed bleadperl@28095 with a
	certain mix of outdated modules. When I run upgrade with that perl on
	dev05, then it runs into:

  ./Build test -- NOT OK
Warning (usually harmless): 'YAML' not installed, will not store persistent state
Running Build install
  make test had returned bad status, won't install without force

Recursive dependency detected:

 JPEACOCK/version-0.69.tar.gz                 : make_test NO

	As so often, we are missing the required version numbers in the
	dependency graph, so I must ask CPAN.pm manually.

 => K/KA/KANE/Archive-Tar-1.30.tar.gz
 => File::Spec                                        # 0.82 but 3.18 is installed
 => K/KW/KWILLIAMS/PathTools-3.24.tar.gz
 => Module::Build
 => K/KW/KWILLIAMS/Module-Build-0.2806.tar.gz
 => File::Spec.

	Aha. This demonstrates that the recursive dependency detector calculates
	wrong. It does not seem to take into account the minimum required
	version number. Maybe this is all due to the Test::Harness anomaly?

	Can I shorten the path? Trying on k75. If I only ask for 'install
	Archive::Tar', what happens? It gets installed. Same for File::Spec.
	Same for Module::Build. Grrr. And when I say 'upgrade', then it does
	indeed upgrade? Because Expect is not installed we must answer the
	libnet question after a while (which surprises me because it is in
	DD_PREFS) and shortly after that we are facing the same output as
	described above.

	Can this situation then be reproduced after leaving CPAN.pm? Or do we
	have to start from the beginning? 'install version' just fails due to
	'qv.al' and such. The upgrade command now does not reproduce the above

	Seems to be FIXED in SVK rev. 1865 or so. There was (1) a variable
	confusion: s/depth/color/ around line 8802 and (2) the need to pull the
	desired version number out again within color_cmp_tmps and to compare
	with what we have available at the moment. (3) we needed a way to
	withdraw quickly when we only set all commandcolors to 0. Not sure if we
	couldn't withdraw much quicker though: isn't recursion detection after
	the command has finished completely bogus? No, it is necessary because
	if we run into recursion it is no fun and we must break it.

	BTW, it's incredible how long it takes to upgrade 28095: more than 30

2007-02-04  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Got another mail from T. Need to close the issue. Better a WONTFIX
	than scenes like those we had on P5P at the end of the 90ies.

2007-02-03  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Feature request by self: introduce a lex TELS that ignores a failing
	Makefile.PL, declares the META.yml as authoritative (for lack of
	alternatives), and reruns the Makefile.PL; we should count how often we
	reran it and give it a final death shot after the second time.

	This solution should fit together with a refined model of the toolchain
	as recently pointed out by Adam Kennedy who said:

1. Configure Dependency
2. Build Dependency
3. Test Dependency
4. Install Dependency
5. Run-Time Dependency

For the current CPAN case, we can consider "requires" to cover
Run-Time Dependency, and "build_requires" to cover all other 4.

Since the Configure Dependency is required to be installed before
configuring, that means that we have to do build_requires before
running our configure script.

	And Schwern recently also said something in this direction.... Where did
	he post something? On P5P:

Ah ha, that's a horse of a different color.  This, I presume, is the VERSION_FROM problem?  Distribution Foo's Makefile.PL says "VERSION_FROM => 'lib/Foo.pm'" which says C<use version; our $VERSION = qv'1.2.3';>.  Even if Foo depends on version.pm the CPAN shells try to run the Makefile.PL before it resolves dependencies (something I'd like to change).

Ok, that's convincing.  Send it on.

	Even though I believe this is too complex to be solved in a one day
	timeframe, I'm tempted.

	* How come that I did get the impression that PREREQ_FATAL=0 fixes all
	the TELS distros that set PREREQ_FATAL to 1? Just tried with blead@30104
	and it does not help. At least not with TELS/math/bignum-0.18.tar.gz.

	So maybe I tried them out in the "right" order? Yes, this must have been
	the case. The "right" order seems to be: Math::BigInt, Math::BigRat.

	This means that we discovered a bug in MakeMaker (a
	non-commandline-overrideable parameter) and we need 4 patches for TELS.

	This is about the MakeMaker bug: http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=24774

	I'll first ask Tels himself before I go this route. [time passes] As
	expected, Tels is not ready to remove PREREQ_FATAL from his modules.

	* TELS has given all new Math modules the PREREQ_FATAL parameter. Trying
	now to counteract with PREREQ_FATAL=0. Yes, the commandline wins, so
	this gives a new distropref file. Update 2007-02-04: I was wrong.

	But with three big* packages upgraded DateTime::Util::Astro::Sun still fails.

	So when did Astro install successfully for the last time?

	for p in `~k/sources/Perl-Repository-APC/SVN/scripts/binsearchaperl --show-cache` ; do $p -e 'print $^X, $"'; $p tests/has-DateTime-Util-Astro.pl ; done | tee show-astro.out

	SUMMARIZED at http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=24779

2007-02-02  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Tels has quickly released three more distros but
	DateTime::Util::Astro::Sun still fails. No time to investigate.

	* Yves has posted a patch that should fix the XML::Twig failures but the
	pumpkin has not yet reacted. Update 2007-02-04: Steve Peters has
	integrated it, problem solved. YAY!

	* what's the problem with Math::BigInt?

	bleadperl has 1.77, TELS has released 1.78. Running the tests for 1.78
	produces lots of warnings. DateTime::Util::Astro::Sun produces lots of
	failures with it but also when I downgrade to 1.77. Giving up for now.

2007-02-01  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Summary of the facts, also posted to Ken:

(1) perl is bleadperl @30080 (verified again with 30087)
(2) Module::Build is 0.2806
(3) distro is DMAKI/DateTime-Util-Calc-0.11.tar.gz
(4) Math::BigInt::GMP and Math::Pari must NOT be installed, so that y_n() is triggered
(5) I call 'perl Build.PL > /tmp/ttt' and it hangs forever and /tmp/ttt remains empty

	Continuing with experiments.

	Downgrading Module::Build to 0.2805 and the bug stays.
	Downgrading Module::Build to 0.2804 and the bug stays.
	Downgrading Module::Build to 0.2610 and the bug goes away.
	0.2801 not ok
	0.2612 ok
	0.27_09 ok
	0.27_10 ok
	0.28 not ok

	Studying the diff between 27_10 and 28:

+                  repository => 'http://svn.perl.org/modules/Module-Build/'

	Taking note of the repository for refined binary search. But watch out:


-0.27_11  Tue Mar 28 22:50:50 CST 2006
+0.28  Thu Apr 27 22:25:00 CDT 2006

	Where is 27_11?

	5978 is a test, 5977 talks about prompt and y_n, 5871...

	0.28     was 5994
	0.27_10  was 5850

	5870 died on that Build.PL
	5871 works correctly
	5976 works wrong
	5931 works wrong
	5919 works wrong
	5904 works correctly

	The diff between the two is interesting:

+sub _is_unattended {
+  my $self = shift;
+  return $ENV{PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT} || ( !$self->_is_interactive && eof STDIN );

	Sure, this hangs. REPORTED on the mailing list.
	* D/DM/DMAKI/DateTime-Util-Calc-0.11.tar.gz again. Ken wrote me to say
	that Module::Build does set $|, so I do the following:

2007-02-01 07:27  cd ~/.cpan/build/DateTime-Util-Calc-0.11-Or71Ir
2007-02-01 07:53  mv /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/p8FWT5N/perl-5.8.0@30080/lib/site_perl/5.9.5/i686-linux-64int/Math/BigInt/GMP.pm
2007-02-01 07:53  /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/p8FWT5N/perl-5.8.0@30080/bin/perl Build.PL >| /tmp/p8FWT5N.out2 2>&1

	This "hangs" and the file /tmp/p8FWT5N.out2 contains ONLY the following lines:

Math::BigInt::FastCalc is missing method '_from_oct' at /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/p8FWT5N/perl-5.8.0@30080/lib/site_perl/5.9.5/DateTime/Util/Calc.pm line 9
Cannot load outdated Math::BigInt::FastCalc v0.10_01, please upgrade at /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/p8FWT5N/perl-5.8.0@30080/lib/site_perl/5.9.5/DateTime/Util/Calc.pm line 9

	So I must repeat this in the debugger to find out who is waiting for what.

	I reach line 501:

501:      local $|=1;
502:      print "$mess $dispdef";
DB<4> x $|
0  1

  So this seems correct.
	I change lines 501 and 502 to read:

  local $|=1;{my $s = fileno select;warn "Going to print message to selected filehandle[$s]. \$|[$|]";}
  print "$mess $dispdef";warn "Have printed message to selected filehandle";

	With that I retry and am quite surprised that again the output file
	looks like the first time.

	For my testing it seems better to not redirect STDERR but only STDOUT,
	so we can just look with 'ls -l' to see that the file is empty.

	Why did I never before see this?

	Because Math::BigInt::GMP fails! See

	Whatever the answer, this must go into distroprefs. DONE for both TELS
	and DMAKI.

	In the Build.PL I see:

	    my $proceed = Module::Build->y_n($message, "n");

	Looks to me that Module::Build should set $| within y_n? Yes? No?

	Missing $| reported to module build mailing list just now.

-Distroprefs: Module morphing, taming, killing, obedience, etc.
-CPAN::Reporter: Talkback.
-CPAN::SQLite: use less memory.
-dot distros: cpan DOT (bring your own)
-Persistent Shell. build_dir_reuse
-Permanent Shell. reload seems reliable now
-Test Now, Install Later. Is_tested, install_tested
-Interactive Configuration of single items.
Bundle::CPANxxl - what is in there? sequence matters.
-hosts stats

	* Spreadsheet-ParseExcel-0.28 is broken for quite some time now.

	https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=24267 is about missing

	* hunting XML::Twig/bleadperl test failures again. I started this once
	on 2007-01-06 and yesterday I let a binary search run against 3.29.
	28202 broke 3.29 but only with a test failure that later disappeared
	again, so this result is not interesting. I need a temporary patch that
	disables the testfile t/test_xml_split.t completely. Ah, this is quite
	easy with test/args distroprefs.

	Testing a temporary MIROD.XML-Twig.yml file that lists all test scripts
	individually (except the offending one). And it turns out that this
	functionality was missing in CPAN.pm. FIXED in SVK rev. 1807

	With              28202           the test test_xml_split  started failing
	Somewhere before  28319                    test_xml_split  stopped failing
	With              28319           the test test_errors     started failing
	Somewhere before  28785                    test_errors     stopped failing
  With              28785           the test test_3_27	     started failing
	Somewhere between 29274 and 29285 the test test_mark       started failing

	274 did not fail the mark test

	275 had problems to build XML::Parser, but why? Or better yet, why did
	274 have no problems building XML::Parser 2.34? I just retried, and yes,
	274 can build XML::Parser. 29275 seems to have a syntax error in
	Yes, it is very annoying, the syntax error is there and cannot be
	explained by anything but a disk drive error (and I had RAID break three
	times these days). It is a rotten build and must be removed.

	278 cannot be built due to two failing tests. We will ignore the failing
	tests ../ext/Time/HiRes/t/HiRes.t ../lib/perl5db.t for now. OK, it does
	not fail the mark test, just the 3_27.

	279 fails the mark test. Ready to write to P5P. And I must correct the
	temporarily manipulated test/args distroprefs file.
	285 failed the mark test

	29010 and 29220 have at least test_3_27.t and test_additional.t failing

	29411 and 29705 have at least test_mark failing

	30044 fails only test_3_27	and test_mark
	* Slaven tells me that he can confirm the Term::ReadLine::Gnu behaviour
	in the t/callback.t test that I find so annoying for 5.9.5(debugging)
	but not for 5.8.8. I.e. with 5.8.8 the window gets closed automatically
	while with 5.9.5 it stays.

	This would normally be solved with a binary search but as always with
	big distros there are risks. Tk under randomly picked 21846 segfaults
	during make test. Same for 23300.

	25302 dies quickly with

    # fix the distro in DISTRODIR
    diff -urp DISTRODIR.orig DISTRODIR > DISTRODIR-ANDK-01.patch
    gzip DISTRODIR-ANDK-01.patch

	I then upload the resulting patch to my CPAN patches/ directory and
	write a YAML file into my prefs_dir/ directory that contains roughly

    comment: "This patch fixes ..."
      distribution: "^DISTRO$"

      - ANDK/patches/DISTRODIR-ANDK-01.patch

	That's all. From then I can install that distro for any perl version on
	that machine.

	Uploaded to CPAN and a new distropref file is made.
	* yesterday I built maintperl 29988 and somehow megainstall failed with
	Jifty-DBI asking auto-install questions. I suppose the question was
	asked by a different perl and an old CPAN because I do have a Jifty-DBI
	distropref file that should prevent questions asking.

	NO! The malfunctioning started exactly at 23:40 when the disk also
	started failing. So I suppose we can simply restart a megainstall on
	29988 now.

	No. Still hanging. No signs of being the wrong perl. Trying with 'make run'.

	Ahja, just the normal autoinstall misbehaviour. Because something
	failed, it tries to go into recursion. My normal patch
	ANDK/Module-AutoInstall-in-inc-ANDK-01.patch seems to take the
	appropriate amount of care for that.

2007-01-26  Andreas J Koenig  <akoenig@iconmobile.com>

	* document build_requires and when you talk about prerequisites, name
	the option names explicitly. DONE

	* note/explain the improved behaviour on recursion detection in the

	* Today I found a bug in Tk::Pod when trying with bleadperl:

	/..../tkpod -I lib CPAN

	Need to have a closer look some day.

	A test script also failed but I installed it with 'force notest install
	Tk::Pod' because I had more interest in getting _71 out.

	* Today I also saw an uninstallable IO::AIO 2.32: the AIO.pm file was
	not found within blib although it was there in blib/lib/IO/IO/AIO.pm.

	Or remove the objects from memory while CacheMgr is running. Or both! If

	but if somebody else deletes it we must offer a better solution than the
	above breakage.

	Suggest "maybe try 'force get $ID' to clean up the object in memory" or
	something like that. Or "to reset everything" or "to start with a fresh
	distro"... Nothing seems really good and correct. LATER
	* Today Ken confirmed that _build/prereqs is safe to rely on. Good news,

	* Todo before 71: write a Changes file. Declare YAML::Tiny not supported

	rev 1763); integrate the distroprefs README into the manpage (DONE SVK
	rev. 1766); speed up distroprefs parsing with a cache DONE in SVK rev.

	It would be nice to understand the failures that were reported through
	testers and the one I saw on my dev05 box and the ones I saw on OSX but
	it will again be a developer release after all, so maybe these will have
	to wait.

	The test failure on dev05 is not reproducable. OSX?

	OSX passes all tests with my first _71 test build.
	* Today I tried 1.88_69 on OSX wit 5.8.6 as it comes preinstalled.
	File::HomeDir has issues and I could not use CPAN::Reporter to write a

2007-01-21  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* We need a speedup of the distroprefs stuff. Currently we're going
	through readdir and YAML::Load thousand times per module. We should
	probably cache the whole directory structure once per command and delete
	it from re-used build_dirs. DONE with negative per-command distroprefs

2007-01-20  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Today I have a segv with 29895 when running CPAN.pm. It may be
	relevant that I erroneously left YAML::Tiny configured? I reconfigured
	to prefer YAML::Syck and ... the SEGV remains. Configuring limit
	coredumpsize 100m now. The SEGV seems to bring the box to its knees and
	the logfile of the first run of 29895 says 'Out of memory'. And the core
	file is indeed 100m and has no stack. Setting coredumpsize to 1000m now.
	The problem comes immediately after loading Kwalify 1.13

	29887 was the last before 895 and its logfile is large. It came to the
	place where it loaded YAML::Tiny and from there is broke but not with a
	SEGV. So something between 29887 and 29895 is evil. How ironic that most
	of these patches are related to CPAN.pm!

	The newest core file is 1000M large, gdb needs a long time to load it
	and again says "No stack" when I say 'bt'.

	Next idea is to 'o conf dontload_list push Kwalify'. Now we get a step
	further. CPAN tries to install Archive::Zip, then becomes very slow,
	grows to 55M and then starts scanning build_dir for sizes. From that
	point it succeeds in building and installing, just a bit slow it seems,
	but this may be just the normal distroprefs slowness. Bundle::CPANxxl is
	installed now and megainstall is running. After a while I discover that
	I made a typo for yaml_module and said YAML::Sync. Of course this leads
	to slowness. Interesting mistake though, we might want to guard against
	it. 'make megainstall' finishes just as we're used to.

	FirstTime warns on misspelled module names since SVK rev. 1761.

2007-01-15  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* DBIx::Class has DBD::SQLite as build_requires. Thus it is being built,
	not installed and CPAN::SQLite does not demand it as prerequisite
	because it finds it (?) but then the install_driver fails during the
	tests. Weird.

	As a first alternative I try to install DBD::SQLite explicitly
	immediately before CPAN::SQLite.

	* See the two fails on CPAN testers for 1.88_69!

	They are both MSWin32 and 397036 is 5.8.5 and fails

	Test returned status 5 (wstat 1280, 0x500)

	It seems there is no output at all to parse.

	the problem it is causing: currently I do not see where it is failing.

	* learn something new every day: less -R preserves the ANSI color
	sequences. Best way to analyse the captured output.

	* maint@29776 breaks DBI, need to check with 29802. Failure mailed to
	P5P. Fixed by Nicholas.

2007-01-13  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* And the next new bug: again an endless loop between PDF::FromHTML and
	XML::Twig. I'm not sure in which state CPAN.pm was when this run
	started, so I rerun from scratch with 29779 and stop the usual loop.

	No, the bug is there. The distro of PDF::FromHTML is the next on the
	loop and it depends on XML::Twig. The latter fails its tests but
	nonetheless re-queing is done. Instead of simply continuing with normal
	business because we do not need to requeue. What a mess.

	OK, sure, by removing the "next" for sponsored modules we gave the
	option that things get requeued that have failed. Should also have an
	easy fix.
	Tomorrow: megainstall with maintperl@29776, blead@297{79,80}, etc.

	(aside: the stupid thing about dot distros is that they are being
	needlessly rerun)

	Maybe write a failed_within_this_command() method?

	Is it true that batch jobs scan for sizes and then do not delete
	anything from build_dir? It seems so. My first 'make run' after a while
	faces 3.3 GB and in all batch jobs I saw the dot painting "for sizes".

	(The last successful testshell protocol I have with Expect on is

	30shell fails and it is again hard to find the offending test. Another
	proof that new tests must go into 31sessions.t. But 31session does not
	finish. Easily reproducable by trying to install

	It seems that the recursion detection is now broken. We reach the limit
	of 100 in CPAN::Queue which should never be reached. If I say ^C there,
	then I see a seemingly endless loop of "Has already been...". Somehow we
	seem to bypass the color_cmd_tmps.

	It seems that everybody who puts something onto the queue is responsible
	for calling color_cmd_tmps? How silly if true :-( But it seems that we
	*are* calling color_cmd_tmps before jumpqueue in follow_prereqs. Yes,
	but we call it with $color=1 and this has already been called before we
	had the prereqs and so it returns early. We probably must call it with
	$color=2? How obfuscated if true :-( Yes, and by calling with $color=2
	and preventing an early return of all color_cmd_tmps when $color==2 I
	start to pass on 31sessions.t. Recursion detection is now even faster,
	we do not even arrive at testing which I consider a good thing.

	But it comes at a price. The disadvantage is that it is a die() and the
	usual "Failed during this command" gets lost. So what do we want?

	The result in older versions was:

Recursive dependency detected:
 => A/AN/ANDK/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-CircDepeOne-1.00.tar.gz
 => CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make::CircDepeThree
 => A/AN/ANDK/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-CircDepeThree-1.00.tar.gz
 => CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make::CircDepeTwo
 => A/AN/ANDK/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-CircDepeTwo-1.00.tar.gz
 => CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make::CircDepeOne.
Cannot continue.
Failed during this command:
 ANDK/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-CircDepeTwo-1.00.tar.gz: make_test NO one dependency not OK (CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make::CircDepeOne)
 ANDK/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-CircDepeThree-1.00.tar.gz: make_test NO one dependency not OK (CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make::CircDepeTwo)
 ANDK/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-CircDepeOne-1.00.tar.gz: make_test NO one dependency not OK (CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make::CircDepeThree)

	Looking at that again it appears not a very clever answer because the
	"Failed" summary does not talk about the recursion detection. I think I
	prefer the die().

	On the other hand we need to help people in this situation and 'look
	Foo' should not fail because of recursion. This is easily fixable: we
	simply call color_cmd_tmps only for "make|test|install".

2007-01-12  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Hunting bugs. The first reliable way to produce the needless loop
	CBuilder<->File::Spec was to install a fresh maintperl@19726 and make
	mega_install on top. It takes a while. I need a quicker way better yet a

	The next best program which still runs for a long time is

	/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/*/p*/perl-5*@29726/bin/perl -Ilib -MCPAN -e 'CPAN::HandleConfig->load;$CPAN::DEBUG|=16;$CPAN::DEBUG|=32;$CPAN::DEBUG|=32768;install(qw(Expect Bundle::CPANxxl))' >& ttt.out

	Unfortunately this reproduces it only once. Fortunately I now understand
	the problem: CBuilder comes with a perfectly well suited Build.PL and
	with a Makefile.PL. My prefer_installer says "MB". But when MB is not
	yet installed, this must not be taken seriously. The bug is that CPAN.pm
	actually tries to execute the Build.PL and fails and then refuses to
	retry. This should have an easy fix in get() and now I believe, a
	testcase for this might be a bit too hard given that Module::Build will
	be in the core soon.

	I think I fixed it.

	Now I'm curious how this influences the Zlib bug. The endless loop
	problem was, after all, a completely separate bug, uniq to the situation
	described above. So I can remove the "next" in the sponsored_modules
	loop and expect that it delays the testing of Compress::Zlib?

	I seem to see a new bug now: CPAN::Reporter builds, tests, installs and
	immediately tests again. --> another investigation necessary

	But yes, the other bug is now also fixed by removing the "next" hack.

2007-01-10  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug: recursive dependency ExtUtils::CBuilder <-> File::Spec

	CPAN.pm gave me this puzzle today when trying to build on top of 5.8.9-tobe

  Recursive dependency detected:
   => K/KW/KWILLIAMS/ExtUtils-CBuilder-0.18.tar.gz
   => File::Spec
   => K/KW/KWILLIAMS/PathTools-3.24.tar.gz
   => ExtUtils::CBuilder.
  Cannot continue.

	But File::Spec 3.12 is installed, so the recursive dependency should be

	AND the dump command should not fail under recursive dependency.

	Interstingly, the problem went away without special intervention. I
	remember now that I have seen it before and that it disappeared. Hrm.

	Why does it try testing C-Z too early? Could we convince CPAN.pm to
	retry testing in 45401? Dump its state at both points in time?

	Update 2007-01-11 akoenig : Found a "next" at the end of unsat_prereq
	that skipped already sponsored modules. Removed it because it looks as
	if it were responsible for the above bug. After that the infinite
	recursion problem between CBuilder and File::Spec dominated the next run
	and the normal recursion detection mechanism did not help to break the
	loop. To put the bad to the ugly it turned out that the recursion
	between CBuilder and File::Path is a wrong recursion in that the
	available version of File::Spec in 5.8.9 is 1.12 and CBuilder does not
	specify a version number, so is really satisfied with 1.12 but somebody
	else seems to require 1.19 and so CPAN.pm is hunting for that without a
	real reason. So we have a big bug here and no time to fix it.

	See also the "next WHAT" in CPAN::Queue::jumpqueue. If we keep it, we
	keep the queue at 100 instances of File-Spec-XXX.tar.gz without growing.
	If we remove it, the queue grows. Both cases are infinite loops, so
	neither better than the other.

	* Watch the Module::Build space for updates to the question of calling

2007-01-08  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Todo: distroprefs mechanism is still inefficient in that it scans too
	often the whole distro_dir. (But it's super to have that while
	developing new rules). And it's a drag especially when people have only
	YAML and no YAML::Syck because they were not told or have no compiler or
	whatsoever. Or revisit the caching mechanism for the YAMLs and count the
	actual YAML activities.

	Also, reduce the default max counter for FTPstats to 1000 or 14 days or
	so and make it settable.

	* The speed factor that I wrote about a few times recently is due to the
	YAML::Syck being 100 times faster than YAML. Whenever for some reason
	YAML::Syck is missing, the whole CPAN.pm feels like running on a 386
	whatever we are doing, because we now have too many tasks delegated to
	YAML format. What to do?

	* 00.README into the manpage now? DONE

	and after that: nothing. So the one we try to test does not get tested
	but all prerequisites run their tests.

	This _is_tested command is wonderful. It show me that the bug is not in
	the is_tested area but in the unsatisfied part and I find the spot where
	inst_{file,version} was used instead of available_{file,version}

	FIXED in svk rev 1703.

2007-01-06  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	*  JHOBLITT/DateTime-Format-ISO8601-0.0403.tar.gz

	broke between 20061212T0332 (29527) and 20061213T1101 (29542)

	But when I visit 29527 I see many prerequisites were missing. Including

	Installing YAML::Syck and then using 'fforce test
	JHOBLITT/DateTime-Format-ISO8601-0.0403.tar.gz' brings me an endless
	loop between DateTime-0.35, DateTime-Format-Builder, Class-Factury-Util,
	DateTime, Params-Validate. And is_tested grows and grows and grows.

	FIXED in rev 1703.

	* blead@28810 did not compile YAML 0.62? Did we know that? That was
	September. Is something more broken than just bleadperl? In any case I'm
	surprised that 28810 has had no YAML.pm. So I should simply run through
	whole cache and see at which time I started to build Bundle::CPAN on all
	bleads. Do not forget, we're now using ccache:

              If  you  set the environment variable CCACHE_DISABLE then ccache
              will just call the  real  compiler,  bypassing  the  cache  com-

	No, the 'dont_load_list' is preventing YAML to be loaded at the moment.

	* Release the bundles that are already rewritten for a while DONE

	* Todo: make auto_commit a mandatory attribute. DONE in rev 1706

	* XML::Twig 3.28 is out and fails with 29705

	29411 then has already the same behaviour as 29705.

	* Watch Paul Johnson's

	Test-JSON-0.02                         wfm

	* Some instability in recent bleads wrt YAML. As soon as YAML is loaded
	perl gets slow and CPAN cannot install Text::Glob, the first module to
	be installed after YAML according to current dependencies.

	Yesterday I resolved it by putting YAML on the dont_load_list. Today I
	would prefer to find some indications towards a possible reason. The
	program hangs while parsing or writing FTPstats.yml such that no other
	program can use CPAN.pm because it waits for the lock.

	(Note: 29704 has arrived while I'm investigating)

1856            if (PL_debug) {
1875        } while ((PL_op = CALL_FPTR(PL_op->op_ppaddr)(aTHX)));
1855            PERL_ASYNC_CHECK();

	This is with 29672. I just retried to load YAML again and the hosts
	command did succeed, but it was slow (several minutes for 10000

	* Spreadsheet::ParseExcel broken recently. Also seems to affect
	Module::Plan::Lite. But binary search points to 29672 which cannot be to
	blame. SOLVED in rt.cpan.org

2007-01-05  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* is match/module compatible with SQLite? Is match/module the single
	cause for the slowness I encounter today? Is just 29679 broken? It
	cannot build PadWalker or it's just slow? Yes, it's only 29679. Something
	between YAML and the core. 78 and 80 are OK.

	I can add YAML to dont_load_list for 79, then build YAML::Syck and all
	goes well.
	* bug: force get on a dot distro removes {archived} which confuses make

	* distcc/ccache: I should use it for Tk. USING IT

	* Xvfb for testing Tk: Slaven writes

        Xvfb -fp /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc -ac :121 &
        env DISPLAY=:121 make test

	Also needed for POE which opens Tk windows.

2007-01-04  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* maybe have a is_tested command? The SVK revision 1694 is just a trial,
	probably needs a rollback. The problems come from concurrency. We
	currently are not supporting modules tested by a different process that
	runs simultaneously. So we should test it with a perl that has already
	finished megainstall.

	* Port auto_commit to 1.8803 . NOT NEEDED

2007-01-03  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Paul Johnson has put out Devel::Cover 0.60

	make test did not succeed for me on the SVN version. Must retry with
	0.60 proper. Same thing. Must try other perls.

	* concurrency: the most critical point at the moment seems to be the
	cleanup of the build directory and another process trying to access one
	of the directories with chdir to build_dir. This dies without a
	Distrostatus in

	Couldn't chdir to /home/k/.cpan/build/Term-ReadLine-Gnu-1.16-MacKnJ at lib/CPAN.pm line 8839

	Stupid use of croak(), we want die or confess and want to fix it when it
	happens again.

	Turned into confess in SVK rev. 1632

	* Are the dot directories documented? Where? Is chdir mentioned there?

	Yes, it was documented in the section "Integrating local directories"
	and I rewrote it a bit, it sounded too boring. It still sounds boring
	and leads me to the idea to support


	I'll have to think some more about it. (Also consider Ingy's move to
	prefer SVN over CPAN)

	* somebody sending a Tk window during a test just waiting to be clicked
	away? Who is it? Tk itself? Maybe this was just a single revision? NO,
	it is Term::ReadLine::Gnu in t/callback.t. Wow, it compiles, apparently.
	But does it pass the tests? Can we disable this batch-unfriendly test?

	We cannot disable it without patching.

	We must click the window away and after that we still have tests failing.

	This looks ugly to me. I have Expect and can answer interactive
	questions but I have no robot to click a window away. For now I'll put
	T:R:Gnu before Tk in the megainstall. Needs a better solution.

	What was the name again of the environment variable for automated

	David Golden once (2006-09-25 on perl-qa) stated 'AUTOMATED_TESTING --
	used by many authors to toggle tests for non-interactive situations', so
	it may be a de-facto standard. A long thread at the beginning of October
	more or less backed this proposal to signal unattended testing.

	ADDRESSED in rev. 1708

	* Remember to see after the Devel::Cover module. 0.60 fails tests and
	maybe needs a binary search again.

	* Hackaton in Munich? Slides for Munich!

	* Watch hosts statistics.

	* Todo: enable batch jobs to trigger cleanup of the build directory.
	Methods: scan_cache, tidyup, Variable: scan_cache. LOCK.

	No, only checklock needs to be made something official. Maybe rename to
	get_lock then.

	* Despite all the care that goes into the distroprefs directory, we
	always will fail on some distros that ask questions and hang forever.
	It's time to rethink a global way out of modules that hang in an IO

	* 11-17 lists a few things for documentation.

	* make up your mind about install_tested.

	* parrot is a bit of a mess, it seems. Why is CONTAINSMODS so tiny?

	At least I would expect

	CONTAINSMODS Inline::Parrot Inline::Parrot::parrot Parrot::Config Parrot::Embed Parrot::Interpreter Parrot::Test::Cardinal Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::UseParrotCoda SmartLink

	But *really* I'd expect several pages of output. But what I initially encountered was

	PROTECTED in rev. 1682

2007-01-01  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Is it possible that Tk gets installed twice per megainstall?

	Not in megainstall.20070102T1831.out

	But in megainstall.20070103T0336.out I see that 'NI-S/Tk-804.027.tar.gz'
	has 'make_test NO'. Looking at its YAML I see it is 'CALLED_FOR:
	Tk::HList'. So is Tk::HList lost in SVN?

	But this is again a case where browseentry failed and NOTHING got
	installed. Bug is reported, do not pay attention to more than one bug:)

	Given that https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=16241 is 12 months
	old, it seems abandoned.


	The stupid thing is that there is a signature.t test and when we use
	distropref/patch to fix MethodMaker.xs, then the signature test breaks.
	Patching SIGNATURE does not help either because the file is signed. The
	solution is to patch 0-signature.t too and let it skip all tests.


	* Bug: The FTPstats file has been cleared once again. 1167639627.93624.
	Only 20 minutes ago. This must have happened when I killed the sluggish
	process. Now I made the writing of the FTPstats file atomic. FIXED in
	SVK rev. 1672

	* It seems that blead@20002 has difficulties with YAML or YAML::Syck.
	The binary search that I have running crawls and strace shows a lot of
	mremap activities and reading of FTPstats (maybe too often?) and long
	phases of no system calls at all. I kill the process and start again.
	Speed now seems normal. New zlib modules get installed. Some fail. There
	are many of them, all with 2.002 as version number--slightly confusing.
	Now CPAN::Injects demands prereqs. Compress::Bzip2 fails with "No rule
	to make target 'Makefile'". File-Find-Rule demands Number::Compare, gets
	it, finishes its own build and the tests and gets installed. Now for
	Data::Compare. It seems to get sluggish. CPAN::Checksums can't get
	installed because of missing Compress::Bzip2. Now somebody wants
	IPC::Run3 and we slowly seem to get it. I believe it is CPAN.pm which is
	losing too much time with some nonsense.

	* Somebody drops a daemon from a test running forever:

Prepending /home/k/.cpan/build/Graphics-ColorNames-2.0_04-fxepKY/blib/arch /home/k/.cpan/build/Graphics-ColorNames-2.0_04-fxepKY/blib/lib /home/k/.cpan/build/HTML-Tidy-1.07_01-wuI8Hl/blib/arch /home/k/.cpan/build/HTML-Tidy-1.07_01-wuI8Hl/blib/lib /home/k/.cpan/build/YAML-Syck-0.72-BMlTTF/blib/arch /home/k/.cpan/build/YAML-Syck-0.72-BMlTTF/blib/lib to PERL5LIB for 'make'
	Graphics::ColorNames   is a goto and a Module::Build
	HTML::Tidy             is a goto
	YAML::Syck             nothing special visible, maybe an artefact
	                       because it is involved in writing and reading
	                       status information?

	There must a bug in the goto implementation.

	Yes, the bug is visible when doing a manual install of
	Graphics::ColorNames in that the test is run twice. A part of the reason
	seems to be that the distro stays on the queue when we have finished
	installing it. The solution might be to remove it within the goto method.

	DONE in SVK rev. 1652

	And for YAML::Syck I find indeed the artefact AND a bug in the reanimate
	routine. I wrote $obj->{make_install} but it should be {install}.

	FIXED in SVK rev. 1653

	* Todo: verify that CPAN_RUN_SHELL_TEST_WITHOUT_EXPECT=1 still works.

	It's incredible slow. Maybe the $prompt_re is inefficient? No, the
	problem is that the more tests we have, the longer is the string that
	needs testing. The output must be split on the prompt and then tested
	one piece at a time. This is a hard job because we do not know where to
	split. 31sessions.t seems better, let's move there and go away from
	30shell.t. For now we can short circuit after the first fail. This still
	is extremely slow.

	Found it. There was a /.../s in the wrong position, it modified the
	$expected regex. FIXED in rev 1654.

2006-12-30  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Todo: bring fforce, document force and fforce. DONE in SVK rev. 1650

	* New bug in testcover:

	t/31sessions.......ok 24/0Don't know which tests failed: got 26 ok, expected 0


	* Todo: bring back fforce. It was the SVK revision 1496 that
	extinguished it. And the subroutine itself was missing altogether. And
	1487 and 1490 introduced it. DONE

	* Paul Johnson is continuing his work on Devel::Cover but 30shell.t
	still triggers a bug somewhere , described in a P5P posting thusly:

	When I use bleadperl@29569 instead, the process grows to 38 MB virtual
	size and finishes after about 12 minutes. With blead@29570 I run into
	the timeout.

	I'm now trying to get more output from the running process:

	HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES=-MDevel::Cover make test TEST_FILES=t/30shell.t TEST_VERBOSE=1

	It hangs after

	# NEXT: b Bundle::CpanTestDummies
	# EXPECT: \sCONTAINS.+?CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make.+?CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make::Zip(?s:.*?cpan[^>]*?>)

	Even if I turn on debug all, output stops there and memory consumption
	is infinite.

	It looks like Expect is holding back the output that could pinpoint the
	problem, so let's try with


	This prints "Out of memory" and dumps core, but I cannot find the core
	file. Sure, because the other process that parses the output just
	removes the whole dot-cpan directory in its END block. A die() does not
	cancel the END block!

	So we move the cleanup code out of the END so we can analyse the
	debugging statements from 'o debug all'.

	I replaced a $_ with a lexical and could run more tests after that.
	Before it was always failing after test 154, now it fails after 164:
	'force ls ANDK' is the last ok and the command that fails is 'test
	CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make'. In the test.out I see that make goes OK
	and after that follows nothing.

	Here comes the big surprise: when I turn debugging on for this and the
	next command, the third one fails. Ahh yes, this is a bug in 30shell.t
	itself. The expected regexes must be longer to avoid false positives
	that hide bugs in the testsuite for a long while.

	And now, all of a sudden, the tests run through? No wild process
	anymore? Well, a lot of them fail but the crazyness is just over?

	Yes. We'll go back a few steps and forward and see if we can identify

	My impression is that the four lines in the chunk after 6981 are
	responsible where I replaced $_ with $dirent. We'll see.

	Update 2006-12-31: No, this change alone does not bring the bug back.

	What about svn up -r 1432? Is the nightmare reproducable at all? Yes.
	With bleadperl@29642 and devel-cover SVN rev. 190 and CPAN.pm SVN rev.
	1432 and the command

	HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES=-MDevel::Cover make test TEST_FILES=t/30shell.t TEST_VERBOSE=1

	I can see the bug again: after test 154 I see this output:

	ok 154 -  (testing command 'b')
# NEXT: b Bundle::CpanTestDummies
# EXPECT: \sCONTAINS.+?CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make.+?CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make::Zip(?s:.*?cpan[^>]*?>)

	and then the process grows to 2.9 GB.

	FINISHED with a status report.

2006-12-29  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Between 29627 and 29637 we have a major breakage in perl. Perl builds
	fine but fails many tests. The first test that fails is io/open.t and it
	has not changed. It's something about my($f) and local($f) but I have
	not one liner yet that demonstrates it. make regen in any case does not

	Ahhh, here it is:

	eval {open my $f, '<', '/etc/hosts';};
  open local $f, '<', '/etc/passwd';

	This is silent in 27 and barks with 35 and 37:

	Can't localize lexical variable $f at tests/my-local.pl line 3.

	Now binary search runs..... 28 ok, 29 not ok.

	Jarkko reports these:

	been fixed in 29639.

	* Bug in SQLite: if I type "install TAB" I only get completion for the
	modules that have already been loaded:

cpan[5]> install             
Acme::Meta      Danga::Socket   POSIX           Sys::Syscall    Time::HiRes
DBD::mysql      IO::Poll        Socket          Test::More      fields

	Reported to and FIXED by Randy.

2006-12-27  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* #24114 by Steve says that we do not survive without YAML!

	Trying to fix with overloaded Exception classes leads to more changes
	than I feel comfortable with without writing new tests. So we need tests
	that test missing YAML and YAML::Syck. Maybe Test::Without::Module might

	No. The tricky way that CPAN.pm is using to load modules is not suited
	for T:W:M. I have tried it and I see YAML gets loaded without
	hesitation. But I recall we have dontload_list. Very nice.

	IMPROVED in SVK rev. 1639 and added tests in 31sessions.t since then.

	* document the major change to the force pragma and find tests that
	enforce that

	* document how test repete is supposed to work and find tests that
	enforce that

2006-12-26  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Paul Johnson has already fixed #24067 in his repository. Unfortunately
	he sends me a link to svnweb instead of the repository itself. Svnweb
	itself neither gives machine readable output nor does it provide a link
	to the repository.

	Fortunately one can guess it: svn ls http://pjcj.sytes.net/svn/Devel-Cover

	Repository version passes all tests.

2006-12-25  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* I don't know how to prevent SQLite dieing due to locked database.
	Because it happens such that a batch process reads the database and an
	interactive process tries to write the database. The latter does not
	know about the other. Both know nothing about each other beforehand.
	Then they clash and I cannot find out.

	FIXED (at least improved) by Randy

2006-12-24  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Todo: create a second shell test, say 31force.t that starts from
	scratch and studies the variants without having to wait for many minutes

	It would be good if we had a test script that allows us to visit
	multiple sessions. It would not really need Expect.pm! We make short
	sessions instead. 31sessions.t is it. Test::Base or what? No, it doesn't
	convince me but I don't know why.

	* after SVK rev. 1604 doing a megainstall from scratch a second time to
	study the differences tomorrow or in the late evening.

	Later... looks good. But crazy that we find both DBD::mysql 4.00 and
	3.0008 in the failed departement (Update 2006-12-26 akoenig : reported
	as http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=24096). And the second
	anomaly that .../svn/tk/. succeeded at 17:28 but not at 11:45. Not much
	for 5100 diff chunks.

	* Rethinking once again 'force test'. Right now I see "Has already been
	tested successfully" within one session but not when I start a session.

	This needs to change because our big force redesign should let us say
	'force test thing' when we really want just exactly that and should save
	us the time when we really know this has been tested OK.

	I think this happens in SVK rev.1604

	* Buglet: if I do a 'force get thing' then I get a new build_dir for the
	thing. If I had done a 'test thing' before then the old build_dir is in
	the is_tested hash/set/database and survives in the paths prepended to

	FIXED in SVK rev. 1589

	But wait! If we have many variants of one distro in PERL5LIB, then all
	hell breaks loose because we possibly do not get the right one as the
	first. We need to sort by something. DONE in upcoming SVK rev. 1604.

	Oh, and we need to filter out the installed ones. So we really must tie
	the distros and the is_tested stuff together. Makes no sense to prepend
	test-directory-X to PERL5LIB when X is installed. FIXED for the
	make_install attribute: this was lost because there was an early return
	on success in CPAN::Distribution::install().

2006-12-23  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.7os6VVqR@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Remember to see after the Devel::Cover module


	It seems to me that the CC to p5p did not come through. Need to re-check
	and forward it myself. But give it time to bite its way through.

2006-12-23  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* After misguided downgrade:

WebService::Bloglines          0.06      0.12  MIYAGAWA/WebService-Bloglines-0.12.tar.gz

	After upgrade back to 0.12:

	Similar case for YSAS and SWF::Builder::Shape. For both I use "reset

	degraded second. See mails from Randy from today

2006-12-22  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* badtestcnt is buggy. color_command_temps(0) deletes it and the next
	command then will behave differently. Trying to stop deleting it I

	    fails                              none
	    does delete badtc for distros?       no
	    test 199 sharp?                      no

	    fails                              none
	    does delete badtc for distros?      yes
	    test 199 sharp?                     yes

	    fails                               199
	    does delete badtc for distros?       no
	    test 199 sharp?                     yes

	Working over the expected regular expressions seems necessary because
	some of them match too early and it becomes impossible to determine
	which test really fails.

	So now we have

	    fails:                              199
	    does delete badtc for distros?       no
	    test199 sharp?                      yes

	Apparently we once decided that badtestcnt shall be kept until a command
	is finished. To prevent repeating the same test within one command. And
	when the command finishes, in the very last moment, we would remove the
	badtestcnt so that the next command would test the same distro again.
	Because we hope that a failing test can turn into success due to
	external factors. From this point of view badtestcnt is programmed

	But I had changed strategy when persistence entered the game. I wanted
	to not repeat failed tests at all to speed things up, didn't I? And what
	did I encounter?

	Needs to be specified in full length first. Do we want to repeat testing?

	            command     session     restored_state
	  OK          no          no          no
	  FAIL        no          yes         yes
	  OK/FAIL     pass everything through to underlying distros

	The problem is, I think, that when we store state, we quite often get
	"badtestcnt" in the state because we store it before the command is
	finished. So if we simply delete badtestcnt when we restore state, we
	should be pretty much out of the danger zone.

	* See recent bugreport on modules against pause indexer and version
	objects and consider how it affects us here. SEEMS OK.

	* From an Email from Ingy to Steffen Mueller:

The idea is to make things a lot easier for a lot more people to be
involved. Well that's part of the plan anyway. Mostly I intend Kwiki to
be downloadable and installable via subversion rather than cpan.

While I don't intend to completely abandon cpan, I also am not so
interested in keeping cpan up to date. Really it should be automated
somehow. Anyway, all this is to say that if you want to shepard Kwiki on
cpan, you are most welcome to.

	An argument for "commandline" but maybe for even more.

	Commandline is DONE.

	* priorities today: force, commandline (DONE)

	* DBD::mysql: I'm sure there is just a defined() somewhere missing in
	the Makefile.PL. Seems to be FIXED by 4.00.

	* DBD::SQLite again: With bleadperl 29398 and current CPAN.pm I tried to
	install /home/src/perl/cpan-sql-stuff/CPAN-SQLite/. but again it failed
	because DBD::SQLite did not write its SQLite.xsi file. I fear there's
	something being (not) done in the Makefile.PL instead of during make.

	Yes. On the second try DBD::SQLite builds perfectly well. So one must
	make sure that they are installed in this order. Maybe this is normal
	for DBDs? I have never noticed this before. Hrm. This would be a case
	for re-running perl Makefile.PL after building the prereqs.

	If we had 'commandline', we would write

	commandline: "$PERL Makefile.PL; make"

	Or something like that. Will test as soon as we have 'commandline'.


	* priorities: bugfixing; SQLite; Kwalify;

	redesigning the force pragma: biggie; see showstopper alert

	distroprefs left over: single ersatzcommand for the test mantras: we
	currently can change the make command and the arguments at the end but
	the word test is always on the command line and this looks silly. But
	maybe not worth a new keyword. But I've also proposed ->{test}{skip}, so
	the two can be folded perhaps? ---- On the bycicle it occurred to me: we
	add "commandline" to each of get/make/test/install and then the user can
	even say "cvs up" or "perl -e 1". I like it.

	* I'm convinced now that we need more force flavors and that force shall
	be limited in scope

	force get     shall re-fetch
	force make    shall not re-fetch   but run make again
	force test    shall not make again but try to test again
	force install shall not test again but try to install

	* But when we have four different force flavors, we will demand a
	superforce that works like the force now does and sets all "lower" ones?

	* Todo: when fixing force note that the documentation about force is in
	three places: CPAN::{Bundle,Distribution,Module}::force.

	* Bug that has to do with install_tested or build_dir_reuse or degraded
	shell mode or some use of ^C at the wrong moment:

  PEREINAR/File-Which-0.05.tar.gz              : install NO

	But File::Which is installed. Maybe in a concurrent shell. When I ask
	for 'install File::Which' I get 'is up to date' and nothing gets
	repaired. When I ask for 'install PEREINAR/File-Which-0.05.tar.gz' then
	the thing gets tested but not installed because 'Already tried without

	Are we in trouble?

	Maybe we must rethink how 'force test' works. It should not 'force get',
	and 'force make', it should just test and not refuse to do it.

	Or we must compute the COMMANDID better than we do during reanimate and
	treat negative COMAMNDIDs with more rigor in some constellations?

	The thing is that the module object for File::Which knows about the
	correct distro object but it gets the installed version from @INC and
	does not know who put it there and so should not be able to discard the
	distro object. Hmmm.

	Remember, we have the notest pragma! Maybe we can let install_tested
	support both the force and the notest pragma and are through?

	But no, even 'notest install ...' does not succeed because we need
	force, not notest, but force propagates down until we restart with get.
	This is, of course a last resort, but it's no fun:-(


	At least I get the impression this extreme case happens only on ^C, but
	some other methods of dieing will certainly exist as well.

	* Observing in a shell in degraded mode: it wrote a new Metadata file.

	* Observing how install_tested behaves: within the same session it
	installs without retesting. In a new session it does retest. What
	*should* it do?
	Noting that the DH test runs forever again because GMP comes too late.

	* The Net::SSH::Perl test 03-packet still runs forever even with
	Math::Bigint::GMP. Maybe this is completely unrelated? Yes! No load!
	Report sent. But can we patch it? Maybe not as long as Math::Pari and
	Crypt::Random are prereqs and fail themselves.

	* In Crypt::DH rewrite the test so that TEST_VERBOSE tells us timings
	and Math::BigInt internals. No need! It's Math::Bigint again. Test is
	really quick with Math::Bigint::GMP installed. Note that Math::GMP is
	not enough. But can we patch it?

2006-12-10  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Buglets with sqlite: does not correctly deal with SVN::Core and
	Bundle::Pause. Things not on CPAN.

	Something else coming from megainstall and some debugging code has been
	added to produce inspection evidence:

Panic: obj[--- 
reqtype: r
] cannot meth[install]

	So we somehow produce an empty object that has nothing but reqtype set.
	I saw this for the first time with SQLLite. Today, with megainstall,
	when I turn SQLite off, the bug does not happen. But the bug might be in
	CPAN.pm as well, we must trace it back to the origin of this weird hash.

	Update 2006-12-12: it is happening with SVN::Client

	The bug was hidden for a few days when DBI was broken but came back when
	DBI got a patch from  Nicholas.

	I think I just fixed it in exists. But still I find

Use of uninitialized value $fullid in substitution (s///) at /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/ph5rQVg/perl-5.8.0@29559/lib/site_perl/5.9.5/CPAN/SQLite/Util.pm line 178.

	in the logfile. And now this has been fixed in C:S CVS version too.

	* From an Email from Ingy to Steffen Mueller:

The idea is to make things a lot easier for a lot more people to be
involved. Well that's part of the plan anyway. Mostly I intend Kwiki to
be downloadable and installable via subversion rather than cpan.

While I don't intend to completely abandon cpan, I also am not so
interested in keeping cpan up to date. Really it should be automated
somehow. Anyway, all this is to say that if you want to shepard Kwiki on
cpan, you are most welcome to.

	An argument for "commandline" but maybe for even more.

2006-12-09  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* On 1367 broke 30shell.t and up to 1372 it was not fixed. The failure
	at 1367 happens at

	test CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Build
	doesN'T match [[[test\s+--\s+OK(?s:.*?cpan[^>]*?>)]]]!

	at 1372 we come to

	install CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Build
	doesN'T match [[[is up to date|SAW MAKE[\s\S]+?SAW MAKE[\s\S]+?SAW MBUILD(?s:.*?cpan[^>]*?>)]]]!

	after tweaking 30shell.t to reveal the real difference between the two
	versions I find what is now new:

#   ANDK/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Build-1.03.tar.gz
# Tests succeeded but one dependency not OK (CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Make::Zip)

	instead of previous:

#   ANDK/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Build-1.03.tar.gz
#   ./Build test -- OK
# Running Build install

	So why is Zip not OK? Maybe because we "installed" it with a fake
	install command? It did not arrive in an install directory but it was
	removed from the "is_tested" directories and then not prepended to

	Yes, that seems the correct interpretation. The old test was not
	revealing that, the new code is. So we improved the code that much that
	it does not allow the faked-up test anymore.

	OK, this shows us how important it is that each test tests only one
	thing. This Build module tests a bit too much so we cannot easily
	recognize how to interprete a failure and we break the first rule of
	testing zen: tests are there to find bugs.
	* Todo: when fixing force note that the documentation about force is in
	three places: CPAN::{Bundle,Distribution,Module}::force.

	* integrate the use_sqlite and sqlite_dbname parameters before _65 DONE.

	* Another problem with goto is that if people say upgrade, the newer
	version will be tried again, will goto the other and then the same
	version as the installed one will be built and installed again. Probably
	too rare a case to worry about. Goto is always a temporary solution.

	* XML::Feed and XML::RSS cooperation continues to exhibit bugs: 

	All tests successful.
	Files=7, Tests=171,  9 wallclock secs ( 7.08 cusr +  0.42 csys =  7.50 CPU)
	Tests succeeded but one dependency not OK (XML::RSS)
	Running Build install
	  make test had returned bad status, won't install without force

	So although XML::RSS was installed successfully, it is not uptodate. But
	it's goodenough for XML::Feed which demands version 1.01. We have 1.12
	and CPAN has 1.21 but 1.21 is disabled now with a goto.

	Maybe we check for uptodateness in the wrong place?

	No, we checked if the newest distro completed its tests.

	FIXED in SVK rev. 1516

	* With all the care that goes into the distroprefs directory, we always
	will fail on some distros that ask questions and hang forever. It's time
	to rethink a global way out of modules that hang in an IO operation.

2006-12-04  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug reported by Sendu Bala: it can really happen that CPAN.pm deletes
	a build_dir while the owner is still in the queue.

	testshell-with-protocol cannot reproduce by setting build_cache to 0.1,
	not even with 0.001, and not even with 0.

	Recall: during the first "get" the cachemgr is introduced. It is global
	and gets never replaced and so should never be called again for

	I ask Sendu to explaint he circumstances and he brings an example where
	somebody calls CPAN.pm recursively. No, I don't consider this a bug. and
	besides, it won't happen in 1.89 anymore *although* I do not consider it
	a bug.
	* Bug: Goto does not work as it should for XML::RSS. Currently I see
	that XML::Feed is tested before XML::RSS is installed. First X:F has the
	prereq to X:R, so X:R is processed. It has a prereq of Test::Manifest
	which is processed and installed. Then comes X:R again but it says:

  /usr/bin/make  -- OK
Running make test
  Delayed until after prerequisites
Running make install
  Delayed until after prerequisites

	And then immediately comes X:F's test and fails. X:R is dropped from the
	queue somehow.

	And undelay and goto do not know each other. Because goto does not jump
	on the queue, I suppose.

	FIXED in SVK rev. 1508

	* Bug: The current Makefile has an implicit dependency on YAML::Syck

	* Maybe I should undo the too far going changes I did in the preparation
	for a better force implementation and make a _64? Force could delay the
	next release considerably.

	OK, the three occurrences of fforce are gone. What else?

2006-12-02  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* find a way to treat kwalify such that the schema is documented and can
	be accessed directly. And such that not only YAML::Syck can read it.
	Current solution confuses YAML.

	After some rewriting of CPAN::Kwalify I'm stuck with this:

% /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/*/*/perl-*@29438/bin/perl -e '
use Kwalify; use File::Slurp qw(slurp);
my($schema,$data) = map { eval slurp $_ } @ARGV;    
Kwalify::validate( $schema, $data );
' ./lib/CPAN/Kwalify/distroprefs.dd ./distroprefs/RGIERSIG.Expect.dd  
[/make] Expected subschema (a hash)

	While this succeeds:

% /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/*/*/perl-*@29438/bin/perl -e '
use Kwalify; use YAML::Syck;
my($schema,$data) = map { YAML::Syck::LoadFile($_) } @ARGV;
Kwalify::validate( $schema, $data );
' ./lib/CPAN/Kwalify/distroprefs.yml ./distroprefs/RGIERSIG.Expect.yml

	The solution is to use $Purity=1 for Data::Dumper transformations as
	described in the Data::Dumper manpage. Thanks to Slaven for digging it
	out for me.
	* priorities today: force, expect, commandline

	backtrack: kwalify in separate package

	* My talk proposal http://www.perl-workshop.de/auth/my/edittalk?id=46

	Module Morphing. Module Taming. Module Killing. Talkback. cpan DOT
	(bring your own)! Persistent or Permanent Shell? Upgrade. Test Now,
	Install Later. Configure Your Pick. Color. Kovaric.

	Wasn't that Kolaric? Oops. My memory betrayed me.

2006-12-01  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug: while trying a goto in KCLARK.SQL-Translator.yml that should
	point to JROBINSON/SQL-Translator-0.08_04.tar.gz nothing works as
	expected. CPAN tries to download pub/CPAN/authors/id/JROBINSON (without
	the J/JR/). All other 4 gotos still seem to work.

	Is this because it is from today or because JR has 9 letters?

	Testing JROBINSON/SQL-Translator-0.08_04.tar.gz directly is no problem.

	fixed in SVK rev 1474
	* Release the two new bundles

	* XML::Twig's tests fail and when looking around one eventually finds
	http://xmltwig.com/ where there is a 3.27 version. No repository access.
	Looks like another case for 'we want "get URL"'. Or theoretically
	someone could just release it to CPAN as 3.27_20061201.tar.gz and then
	treat it with a goto. But that smells.

2006-11-30  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Todos reshuffled.

2006-11-29  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* DBD::mysql: I'm sure there is just a defined() somewhere missing in
	the Makefile.PL

	* Need to patch Module::AutoInstall and test antirecursion with an
	environment variable. Errr, I need to patch the inc/ directory of
	Plagger then. Done and patch for now in the patches directory.

	Remember that there's also a rant in 00.README -- No, this is already

	http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23735 now suggests a patch

2006-11-28  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* DBD::SQLite again: With bleadperl 29398 and current CPAN.pm I tried to
	install /home/src/perl/cpan-sql-stuff/CPAN-SQLite/. but again it failed
	because DBD::SQLite did not write its SQLite.xsi file. I fear there's
	something being (not) done in the Makefile.PL instead of during make.

	Yes. On the second try DBD::SQLite builds perfectly well. So one must
	make sure that they are installed in this order. Maybe this is normal
	for DBDs? I have never noticed this before. Hrm. This would be a case
	for re-running perl Makefile.PL after building the prereqs.

	If we had 'commandline', we would write

	commandline: "make; $PERL Makefile.PL; make"

	Or something like that. Will test as soon as we have 'commandline'.

	* Observing that expect-in-any-order is much slower than expect (of
	course) and that one could safe minutes for Plagger if a timeout were
	set to 0.1 or so.

	Update 2006-12-17 akoenig : low global timeout value does not work
	because the first question has a few seconds to wait for whatever. So
	one would really need tiemouts per question and in the case of anyorder
	one would have toi calculate the current maximum for the timeout and
	while this would be doable it would be overspecification, too much to
	learn for the user with too little gain to be made. REJECTED

	* bug:

	force get /home/src/perl/cpan-sql-stuff/CPAN-SQLite/.

	goes through all of urllist and tries to download

	And after that we cannot work with the
	/home/src/perl/cpan-sql-stuff/CPAN-SQLite/. directory anymore, somehow
	the internal state has lost the connection to the real directory.

	Without the force it works nicely and says:

2006-11-25  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* priorities: bugfixing; SQLite; Kwalify;

	redesigning the force pragma: biggie; see showstopper alert

	distroprefs left over: single ersatzcommand for the test mantras: we
	currently can change the make command and the arguments at the end but
	the word test is always on the command line and this looks silly. But
	maybe not worth a new keyword. But I've also proposed ->{test}{skip}, so
	the two can be folded perhaps? ---- On the bycicle it occurred to me: we
	add "commandline" to each of get/make/test/install and then the user can
	even say "cd .... && cvs up" or "perl -e 1". I like it.

	11-17 lists a few things for documentation.

	TTL stuff

	make up your mind about install_tested.

2006-11-24  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* But when we have four different force flavors, we will demand a
	superforce that works like the force now does and sets all "lower" ones?

	* Todo: distroprefs mechanism is still inefficient in that it scans too
	often the whole distro_dir. (But it's super to have that while
	developing new rules)

2006-11-23  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* I'm convinced now that we need more force flavors and that force shall
	be limited in scope

	force get     shall re-fetch
	force make    shall not re-fetch   but run make again
	force test    shall not make again but try to test again
	force install shall not test again but try to install

2006-11-22  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Integrate hosts into $META like authors, distributions, and modules?
	If we're cautious, this might turn into an automatic optimization.

	If Coro does index downloads for us, we do not have to fear slow
	connections and can gather better data.

2006-11-14  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Randy says:

	The only data CPAN::SQLite really needs from CPAN.pm is:
	- a location to store the database file; for this,
	it's presently using $CPAN::Config->{cpan_home},
	which I believe is the same location as Metadata;
	- the name of the database file; in this I've been
	using a new config entry $CPAN::Config->{sqlite_dbname},
	or 'cpandb-sqlite', as a default;
	- the location (directory) beneath which the CPAN
	indices are kept; I've been using
	$CPAN::Config->{keep_source_where}, assuming
	it's a simple directory.
	The guessing for this in CPAN::SQLite comes when it's
	not being run under CPAN.pm.
	As for CPAN::SQLite providing data to CPAN.pm,
	that's being done solely in CPAN::SQLite::META,
	and it uses
	  $CPAN::META->instance($class => $id)->set(%data);
	for everything, except for CONTAINSMODS, where
	it uses
	  $d = $CPAN::META->instance($class => $id);
	  $d->{CONTAINSMODS} = \%list_of_mods;
	* Catalyst would be another candidate for a large dependency list.

	* Guessing of -p0/-p1 for patch maybe wrong if the patch tries to create
	a new file against, say, /dev/null.

	* Expect structure. We can leave expect as it is but expect-in-any-order
	needs a way to set the timeout. The structure must change, I fear.

	* Would be nice: integrate the config variable name into the init
	dialogs such that one has a chance to learn their names over time.

	* Would be nice: 'o conf /check/' to list all variables matching a regex.

	* I realize that it's quite pointless to try downloading with "fancy"
	when there is Net::FTP installed. OTOH, *sometimes* it may be clueful. I
	should explain in a FAQ that it makes sense to disable the externel
	programs once one has Net::FTP and LWP. The problem only appears if you
	have many hosts in the urllist and try to download a fresh file: here
	you want to try only with one method and cycle through the hosts

2006-11-13  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Randy Kobes needs an API to find out where the index files are
	located. And the whole SQLite needs to be integrated. First question is
	what do we use from it. Only the readonly stuff, I suppose. And the
	urllist. And all this might need to be combined with the TTL stuff and
	separate loading of index files.

	* Bug that has to do with install_tested or build_dir_reuse or degraded
	shell mode or some use of ^C at the wrong moment:

  PEREINAR/File-Which-0.05.tar.gz              : install NO

	But File::Which is installed. Maybe in a concurrent shell. When I ask
	for 'install File::Which' I get 'is up to date' and nothing gets
	repaired. When I ask for 'install PEREINAR/File-Which-0.05.tar.gz' then
	the thing gets tested but not installed because 'Already tried without

	Are we in trouble?

	Maybe we must rethink how 'force test' works. It should not 'force get',
	and 'force make', it should just test and not refuse to do it.

	Or we must compute the COMMANDID better than we do during reanimate and
	treat negative COMAMNDIDs with more rigor in some constellations?

	The thing is that the module object for File::Which knows about the
	correct distro object but it gets the installed version from @INC and
	does not know who put it there and so should not be able to discard the
	distro object. Hmmm.

	Remember, we have the notest pragma! Maybe we can let install_tested
	support both the force and the notest pragma and are through?

	But no, even 'notest install ...' does not succeed because we need
	force, not notest, but force propagates down until we restart with get.
	This is, of course a last resort, but it's no fun:-(


	At least I get the impression this extreme case happens only on ^C, but
	some other methods of dieing will certainly exist as well.

	* Todo: offer the choice between (readline) Gnu and Perl and Coro. See
	my trials in the bin/ directory (SVN only)

	* Mail::Send problem persists that Test::Reporter's mails do not arrive

	case I must disable installation of Mail::Send somehow or debug.

	and Math::BigInt internals. No need! It's Math::Bigint again. Test is
	really quick with Math::Bigint::GMP installed. Note that Math::GMP is
	not enough. But can we patch it?

	without patching. Shall we?

	* E1: revisit rev 158:159, the introduction of "recent" and "perldoc".
	#21791 has its bugreport. I don't like that most of the subroutines are
	thrown into CPAN::Distribution either. OTOH, we have commands that have
	no central role within CPAN. One can always refuse to use them. Hrm.

	* E5: (again and again) verify that the CPAN.pm-using modules continue
	to work:


	* E5 watch RT for open tickets. This todo can never be closed.

	* E1 Todo: continue to close the Pod::Coverage gap. Currently only
	CPAN.pm is covered

	* E3 Todo: write a test for dot-cpan/Metadata usage. Hmmm. Important for
	the future of locking, the future of DBM::Deep, protocol changes. Not
	sure what to test.

	* M3 Todo: investigate what BUGHUNTING in Tarzip means "today": it's
	about a very old bug in Archive::Tar that is most probably fixed. Turn
	bughunting on with the command C< !print$CPAN::Tarzip::BUGHUNTING=1 >.
	It is slow but everything should just plain work. When we're confident
	that everything works, we could offer a tar_policy option that has
	options "ext" and "mod", for external programs vs. modules, default to

	* M3 Reopened Bug: it seems that a user who is in /bin and has "." in
	the beginning of the path gets ./sh as his shell from FirstTime. If we
	encounter . in the path we should rather ignore it. But first we must
	verify the behaviour. Reported by Slaven Rezic on behalf of Tino
	Schulze. This has nothing to do with -I. but only with the shell and
	$ENV{PATH} and as we do not know which shell it was it seems we cannot
	test for the problem.

	release is available at


	Suddenly it dawned on me that I want to support

	    install http://bloodgate.com/perl/packages/devel/Math-BigInt-1.78.tar.gz

	What am I missing?

	The other commands dealing with files would have to learn a bit.

	d http://      # fails as before with "No objects of...."

	               # alt: does a HEAD and tells user that the URL can e reached

	ls http://     # lists nothing

	               # alt: says that ls doesn't support URLs

	get http://    # this is probably all we need to implement. Maybe a new
	               # class needed that does as_string and as_glimpse as well?

	And maybe a pragma that turns this feature on? So that 'get http://...'
	never works but 'force get http://...' does? Alt: config variable to
	turn feature on, then a separate module that implements it.

	Brian likes the idea

oh, very interesting, especially if I already have the file:

This makes CPAN::Mini::Inject a bit less useful because I no longer

	* Batch jobs without a lock should not be allowed to cleanup the cache
	directory. And then document the lock policy and that there are lockless

	* Observing what autoinstall does:

"-Iinc" Makefile.PL --config= --installdeps=File::Find::Rule,0,UNIVERSAL::requir
CPAN: File::HomeDir loaded ok (v0.58)

	Yes, this goes really into recursion. Since I have "reuse" turned on,
	the damage is limited but if I had it not on, it would be a lot of
	expensive noops.

	The question is simply: how can I prevent autoinstall from going into
	recursion? I want it to do its detective work and return it to me. Ahhh,
	it does so! It writes them in traditional style into the Makefile. All I
	need to prevent is that this target (the "installdeps" target) is run
	during 'make'. Or that it is being run but does nothing. Or whatever
	that does not repeat what I have already done.

	1286: ok

	89 ok

	91 ok ???

	1300 ok ???

	1310 ok ???

	Obviously a timing related bug. The ls command seems expensive. Maybe
	perl is slower or the sqlite patch made CPAN.pm slower. Setting the
	default timeout to 30 and ripping out the sqlite patch brings us test ok
	again. Putting back in the sqlite stuff with the small obvious fix in
	the exists method brings test ok again. Setting timout back to 20 again
	and just increasing the timout for the 'ls ANDK' command to 30 brings
	test ok again. All of the successes in the SVN directory.

	* CPAN::SQLite has the dependency on LWP::Simple missing

	* observed a strange behaviour: trying

	test /home/src/perl/cpan-sql-stuff/CPAN-SQLite/.

	early, immediately after Bundle::CPANxxl. Dependency on SQLite is
	recognized, recursive dependency on DBI is recognized, but SQLite does
	not build a SQLite.xsi which seems to indicate that it did not find DBI.

	install helps, so we are still unfriendly to testers?

	Hmm. Installing on naked 29367 gives no errors. Installing on

- PAR::Dist::FromCPAN            ...missing.

	Now that I have Module::Refresh and Test::Base Jifty fails tests due to

	* Trying to get a binary search running for XML-Feed-0.12. I need to go
	before 20000 where I haven't been for quite a while and nothing works.

	I need to break a circular dependency ExtUtils::CBuilder => File::Spec
	=> PathTools => ExtUtils::CBuilder

	I'm hung at the moment with 19096: it cannot build
	Scalar-List-Utils-1.18 because it fails during perl Makefile.PL:

	Can't call method "load" on an undefined value at inc/Module/Install.pm line 180

	I have tried to install Module::Install myself but this did not help.

	Removing the whole inc directory does not help either. When I improve
	the code at line 180, it just gets reverted magically. This is what I
	tried to insert:

		my $obj = eval { $self->load($method) };
        if ($@) {
          my $err = $@;
          require Carp;
          confess $err;
        $obj or return;

	Running in the debugger fails also because it fails at compile time.

	Giving up on 19096, trying 19523.

	Same thing but I realise that I can skip Scalar-List-Utils. Now I need
	to install LWP with notest. And XML::Atom fails because 'Undefined
	subroutine &utf8::is_utf8 called at t/18-unicode.t line 17.' Use notest
	again. And XML-Feed's test still fails with

DIED. FAILED tests 44-45
        Failed 2/72 tests, 97.22% okay

	Trying 19096 again. This time XML::Atom cannot write a Build file with
	the same Module::Install bug as above. Giving up.

	Maybe investigate within the maint branch?

	Yes! This shows us an interesting fact: under 29163 we see the same
	failure. Under my /usr/local/perl-5.8.8/ we do not see it. 27048 which
	is closest to 27040 (which would be 5.8.8 exactly).

	Same failure. So it's very likely a module dependency. Some recent
	module upgrade probably. my 5.8.8 installation might still have the old
	one and updating breaks? The successfully testing 5.8.8 says

  > On a tangentially related note, are there any plans to make CPAN do

No. I never considered this a job for CPAN.pm. If I had the time,
inclination and fu to write talk-me-through-optional-features
software, I'd write it independently from CPAN.pm.

I think of CPAN.pm as the glue between the user and the CPAN mantras.
CPAN.pm 1.89 will allow the users to store their preferences about
optional things in any CPAN package, no matter how the packages
themselves manage them. If you play with 1.88_62 see the 00.README in
the distroprefs directory. But it's no
talk-me-through-optional-features software.

Or if you prefer a drawing:

*** Dependencies will be installed the next time you type 'make'.
    (You may need to do that as the 'root' user.)
*** Module::AutoInstall configuration finished.

	Next step is to document what is wrong with the prereqs and present the
	findings to author.

	1. Test fails on XML::XPath.         requires bug
	2. Ditto on LWP::UserAgent           requires bug
	3. Ditto on Digest::SHA1             requires bug
	4. Ditto on DateTime                 requires bug
	5. Ditto on XML::LibXML not so obviously!) requires bug

	It may be the case that the author thought that a user that says no to
	an optional feature will accept failing tests. But I'd expect that if I
	say no to a feature then this feature is not tested at all. And I'd
	argue this is important because a user can usually not reliably
	differentiate proprely between failing tests due to bugs and failing
	tests due to missing prereqs. No bug on Module::AutoInstall side.

	Now our manual binary search stands at 27069(ok) and 29332(not ok) and
	our patch seems to be clear: add the above 5 modules to requires and not
	as optional modules.

	Done and it worked with 28618.

	* Need a way to specify a different distribution for a module. Say, we
	realize that the officially current XML::LibXML 1.62 is broken but some
	PAJAS/XML-LibXML-1.61003.tar.gz still works. I think, I'd like

	  ->{goto} = "PAJAS/XML-LibXML-1.61003.tar.gz"


	* Need a way to specify notest from distroprefs. When we know Strptime
	doesn't pass a test but we know that the problem is harmless or can be
	ignored for some reason. I think, I'd like ->{test}{skip} = 1

	* Todo: LWP::Authen::Wsse is an optional prereq of XML::Atom but did not
	get installed. Need to find out how to signal to AutoInstall that I want
	all recommendations installed. Ahh, I find that XML::Atom not only uses
	AutoInstall but also Module::Build and that writes a _build/prereq file
	and I could read that. I would then find that 'recommends' hashref and I
	could then start installing what I find there.

	But how do I know that the user wants that the recommendations be

	While watching what Module::Install is doing and trying out variations I
	get the impression that I have no chance to do the right thing. If the
	user says, he wants the recommendations, they still do not end up in
	META.yml or _build/prereqs or where else should I look?

	After the user has said that he wants everything, we see

Checking prerequisites...
 * Optional prerequisite LWP::Authen::Wsse is not installed
 * Optional prerequisite XML::LibXML is not installed
 * Optional prerequisite DateTime is not installed

	But nobody builds or installs them. I find them nowhere in the build
	directory stored away. And yet, when I test XML::Atom, it requires it
	magically and I have to install them manually.

	* Todo: the order of lines in the "failed" command or "failed" report
	section is, given identical command ID, I believe, random. Need a
	timestamp for finer granular sorting. That would make the listing much
	more useful because the first is the most important, all others may be
	followup errors.

	* Todo: write a Makefile target for the 3 *.dd files in distroprefs DONE

	* Todo: Storable support for distroprefs DONE

	* Since I fixed the bootstrapping problem of YAML/Expect/ReadLine by
	allowing fallback dd files, I thought that now I would be able to run
	binary searches more often for broken (or unexpectedly fixed) modules.
	My first victim should be DateTime::Format::Strptime. But binary search
	converged towards 2794[123] and it was so obvious from mere watching
	that this turning point was not the Strptime problem but some other
	Params::Validate related problem. P:V 0.86 broke at 27942 and so
	DateTime could not be built and Date::Time::Locale could not be built
	and Strptime could also not pass its tests.

	At some point in time later P:V worked again and so we have this
	eclipse: at 27942 the still working Strptime disappeared in the shadow
	of P:V and when P:V started to work again, Strptime was broken (or was
	it not?). If it broke we cannot see where it broke unless we start
	another higher level view that throws extra patches around.

	The good news is that we can determine the duration of the eclipse of
	P:V: it broke at 27942 and reappeared between 28156 and 28181 (closer
	examination pending).

	Very nice: Strptime worked with 28181 and so we can run another binary
	search between 28181 and 29312. Breakage at 28325 and report sent to P5P

	* why is reuse_old_builddir (sp?) turned off in degraded mode? I think
	there is no good reason. FIXED

	* Observed that the E of DONE is in the second line during "03". Take
	the algorithm in reanimate_build_dir() around line 4175 in all three
	index files. It's easier to read and workd even for @items < 76. DONE

	* display the commandid during the failed command -- just for a while. I
	want to see how big the holes are and if they look plausible. -- They
	have all the same number! FIXED

	* Bug: ~/.cpan/sources/modules is full with backup files FIXED in 1360

	* I just added the decicive line to Makefile.PL so that I can
	conveniently start messing around with CPAN::SQLite support:

	* distroprefs with artificial intelligence: find out how to write a
	distropref with so much AI that it handles several different dialogues.
	I just realized that YAML::Syck talked me into a different dialogue on
	some older bleadperl that had YAML 0.60 installed:

*** WARNING ***

This release breaks compatibility with versions earlier than version 0.60 of
YAML::Syck and YAML.pm when serializing blessed references.

See the COMPATIBILITY file for more information.

*** Pre-0.60 version of YAML.pm (0.53) detected.
Continue installing YAML::Syck? [y]

	We would like to answer to this question yes if it comes. Or we would
	like to upgrade YAML first.

	One would think that Expect collects data and compares them to a pool of
	regular expressions each of which has an associated answer. As soon as
	one expression matches, its answer is given and it is taken out of the
	pool. On EOF do not even complain. Very similar to what we do now. Is it
	even worth to keep the current interface? Yes, because it has the
	potential to break. Because Expect itself does not provide it. We must
	write some code in between:

	Variant 1: match on /./, look at the whole collected string, do the
	match loop. On success do as we do now, on failure continue as we do
	now. On timeout do like we do now. On EOF exit the loop silently. As
	test write a distro that asks 12 questions in random order and dies if
	the wrong answer is given.

	Variant 2: match on /./ until timeout is reached. Now do your own
	matching. On success do as we do now, on failure give up. One question
	that we cannot answer is too much. There is no timeout error, just a "no
	prepared regex matches the question". On EOF exit the loop silently.

	Variant 2 is much better.

	Today I wrote CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-Expect-1.00.tar.gz for that.

	Hmmm. So Randy wants to have use_sqlite to be set before we enter the
	shell and he wants it only within the shell. This is pretty likely

	Trying to set use_sqlite earlier with a tiny patch to Makefile.PL.
	Doesn't work because CPAN::SQLite loads MyConfig again according to the

	$ = require '/home/k/.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm' called from file `/home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/peHlG5S/perl-5.8.0@29243/lib/site_perl/5.9.5/CPAN/SQLite.pm' line 50

	So we lose the switch again. Back to the drawing board.

	Either I need a way to use CPAN::SQLite without having it guess CPAN.pm
	internals all over the place. Or Randy needs a CPAN.pm that has API
	calls for all the CPAN.pm internals. I cannot allow a plugin that tries
	to reload the Config file and overwriting the Internals that I have
	currently set. This is happening and makes it hard to predict what will
	happen next.

	* degraded mode problems: I did an 'o conf commit' in degraded mode and

Speaking of bad configs, I think I might be a good idea to start
adding some basic error checks.

Yesterday I got caught by the various paths not allowing the use of
tilde ~. Instead of my homedir, it installed to a directory called,
literally, "~".

Apart from being a little annoying, fixing it required I make the
scariest command I've ever done on a production system.

	* randy kobes sent two patches--Thanks Randy, I'm swamped with work ATM

	* imacat writes in #22749:

	> I found that CPAN is NOT downloading CHECKSUMS alone with the

	[the protocol shows how the fourth host succeeds for
	TIMB/DBI-1.53.tar.gz but CPAN.pm then fetches the CHECKSUMS file from
	the first]

	For young files there is often a short timespan within which there is no
	entry in the checksums file yet, even if they come from the same host.
	As you are always working with very young files, I'm surprised it
	doesn't happen more often to you.

	But in principle you are right, CPAN.pm should try to get checksums file
	from the same host because the likelihood is higher to get an uptpdate
	checksums file.

	sub _ftp_statistics
	sub _new_stats
	sub _add_to_statistics
	sub _recommend_url_for

	And then fill the stats hashref in each of the download methods

	method, hosts tried with successmode, time finished, file size,

	First working version with crappy stats (no nosuccess reflection) now
	tested with a couple of European sites in urllist and running

	!unlink "/home/k/.cpan/sources/authors/id/N/NW/NWCLARK/Acme-Meta-0.02.tar.gz"
	force test Acme::Meta

	in an endless loop looks good.

	Now todo: improve the statistics with above mentioned fields and with
	nosuccess data and actually honour the $file argument to
	_recommend_url_for() when a CHECKSUMS file is requested. Maybe make the
	randomness a selectable feature?

	* https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Attachment/250710/107655/ is a bug in YAML

	I've put my findings in there. FIXED.

	* ALERT! A test in YAML turned red with blead??? It turns out that my
	YAML crashes bugs-rt when the URI module is installed and passes all
	tests when the URI module is not installed. The second test in bugs-rt.t

2006-11-01  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Locking needs to be resolved soonish to enable safe concurrent
	megainstalls and concurrent running shells.

	I want to share the build_dir first because this is currently the most
	dangerous spot. I suppose we can have it by using File::Temp for the
	individual build_dir. We would have to turn off build_dir_reuse for the
	second process (Update 2006-11-17: Why?). Nobody would ever overwrite a
	build_dir. Some guys would remove old directories and this would do no
	harm. Should be done in rev. 1183.

	Even if the second uses the same perl as the first one, we could coexist
	because many commands scan the INC repeatedly. Things we do not scan
	again and again are ???

	historyfile: We would have to set histfile to nil for the second. DONE

	metadata: we would turn it off for the second. We could
	neither read nor write it safely without locking protocol. DONE 1181

	reading traditional index files: make writing atomic, let the second
	only read them (by setting expiration time to inf). DONE 1181 Actually,
	this was nonsense. the expiration time must not be changed. The user
	wants to read index files from time to time... REVERTED in 1188

	ability to reload index: turn off for the second DONE 1181

	storing/listing local bundles: risk REVISIT LATER

	local directories with the dot: risk REVISIT LATER

	shared source: make it atomic to download (if it isn't yet) DONE 1180

	Different perspective: batch jobs have not had a lock ever since CPAN.pm
	exists. They could break each other on any occasion. Did they write the
	histfile? Seems not so. Timestamp does not change with my tests and it
	does not say "Lockfile removed". Yes, checklock is only called from the
	shell (and from mkmyconfig but this is negligible). REVISIT mkmyconfig

	But they read metadata and shouldn't. Disable! DONE 1181

	And they reuse build_dir. Disable! DONE 1181

	But they MUST read the index files: make writing atomic! DONE 1180

	Is CPAN::FTP::localize doing its storage management atomicly? YES, since 1180

	Todo: consider setting scan_cache to "never" or maybe not.

	* Todo: compare the output of the 'failed' command within megainstall
	and after reentering the shell. DONE and found one bug and fixed it in
	rev. 1178

	* I wanted to watch some scenarios with persistent data. Especially with
	modules that work and that are being tested again and again with prereqs
	and without or within bundles and if they are retested or not, installed
	or not with persistence and within the same session.

	Write a megatest?

	* Wondering why I find this in the build directory in Crypt-CBC-2.22.yml:

  writemakefile: !!perl/hash:CPAN::Distrostatus 
    FAILED: ''

	Note the 0 in COMMANDID.

	A: The reason is that we only issued one command with 'make
	megainstall', so this is correct.

	* Does the shell still do locking? Under which circumstances is locking
	turned off? Console/terminal I suppose.

	A: yes.

2006-10-31  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* just a memo what I usually install:

	    install Bundle::CPANxxl Math::BigInt::GMP Plagger Bundle::Phalanx100 Jifty Coro Getopt::Euclid DBIx::Class IPC::PubSub Bundle::Pause PadWalker Graph::Easy

	YAML::Syck after Bundle::CPAN did not turn off interactivity.

	YAML::Syck before Bundle::CPAN worked well.

	CPAN::Reporter before YAML worked well but we want to catch the early
	YAML interactivity (which in turn can be avoided with YAML::Syck).

	Now all in "make megainstall" including logging.

	* Todo: some capture stuff maybe collected into the YAML files in
	build_dir that contains all relevant output of that distro so we can
	study the nonsense that currently goes on when I do my mega install on

	For some reason some modules failed early in the cycle and then never
	got re-tested. And they broke others which also didn't get re-tested. In
	the end we had a lot of modules uninstalled that would test individually
	well but all refused to re-test without force.
	One simple solution was to 'force test Bundle::CPANxxl' but that took
	many minutes again.

	[What's the deal with PathTools? Ahh, the dependency on
	ExtUtils::CBuilder again. I have reported the bug but it is not yet
	fixed. FIXED in Bundle::CPAN by pulling CBuilder to the front,]

	For example the chain broke: CPAN::Checksums -> Data::Compare ->
	File::Find::Rule -> Number::Compare. I could install Number::Compare now
	when I asked for it (without force!), and then the chain could be
	resolved step after step.

	Something's fishy.

	* Q: Why is this: during install Bundle::Phalanx100 I get for
	DBD::Oracle a writemakefile NO
	Makefile.PL' returned status 65280

	When I leave the shell and start it again and call 'failed' it is gone.

	A: because we did not care for the state safe

	Fixed in rev. 1172

2006-10-30  Andreas J Koenig  <akoenig@*c*nm*b*l*.com>

	* From: "David Golden" <xdaveg@gmail.com>
Subject: CPAN::Reporter and Bundle::CPAN
To: "Andreas J. Koenig" <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>
Date: Mon, 30 Oct 2006 10:04:05 -0500                                           

With CPAN::Reporter 0.29, all the config items are switched over.  The
Todo backlog is still non-trivial, but I don't think any of the items
will cause back-compatibilty problems down the line.  Given that,
please feel free to add CPAN::Reporter to Bundle::CPAN whenever you
have a chance.


	* disable PerlMagick

2006-10-30  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* File::Slurp vs Pod::Coverage. Ticket opened:
2006-10-29  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Need to write build_dir/*.yml files also if reuse is turned off. And
	also when we fail.

	* Need a 'disabled' keyword on distroprefs. The hack to use
	cpanconfig/make=false is both Unix centric and not obvious. ADDED in
	rev. 1159

	* distroprefs is harder to use with build_dir_reuse than before. We now
	need "force get" more often because the old prefs value is in the distro
	object. Force get can mean a network connection, so there's a need to
	decide how we want to deal with that.

	First idea is to remove the prefs from the serialized object but this is
	much worse in case a patch has been applied.

	* new method perl_fingerprint and _is_deeply or so to compare previous
	and current fingerprint. DONE in rev. 1158

	* Math::Pari was definitely broken by blead. Make it a bug report(?)
eval {require Math::Pari};
print $@ ? "N/A" : Math::Pari->VERSION;
print "\n";

	|has that one extra IV at the end.

2006-10-28  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* think about the locking from a different angle: currently it is
	possible but unsafe to have concurrent access to the .cpan/build

	* go after the Module::Build errors in Error.pm and Mason: I suspect
	that's the set_perl5lib bug mentioned by Ilya. NO, it was not the
	set_perl5lib bug. The bug is that the two distros use subclassing in
	their Build.PL and so Module::Build's own methods are unable to provide
	the prerequisites. My workaround for now is to fall back to the content
	of META.yml, the bug persists and needs to be discussed with M:B people.

	* write a dummy distro that reads arguments to Makefile.PL and another
	one that reads something from STDIN (or maybe both in one) DELAYED until
	the distroprefs stuff leaves the alpha stage.

	* replace 03 index file with YAML.

	* Todo/buglet: turn on debug "CPAN" and find the reason why
	incommandcolor is quite often not reset. We had that further down but I
	fear it is not yet fixed.

	* H3 Locking: Linda W writes

	>I'm not sure I understand the reason for the lock file

	And I promise to try out a more granular locking mechanism. This was
	between 2006-01-26 and 2006-02-01 (and I wrote a paragraph into the
	manpage how multiple ~/.cpan* directories could work)

2006-10-27  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Test if "reuse" works without metadata (timing issues because the
	entries do not exist yet?) No, it doesn't! FIXED in rev 1149

	* Investigate what happens if a user has CPAN 1.8802 and Module::Build
	0.2611 and tries to upgrade to 0.2805. Gabor says, it fails. If it
	fails, I'll have to coin a new phrase for the bug: install suicide? No
	need to worry, ATM it works more or less well, but it doesn't fail
	rightaway. CHECKED after rev. 1149 or so.

	* Rethink if Ilya's expire_old_builds is better the build_dir_reuse in
	that it sets an expiration date. His -1 is my 1. His 0 is my 0. I have
	nothing like his 30. The name of his variable is not good in that one
	could believe that setting expire_old_builds==0 might mean to do NOT
	expire them at all. Hmm. I think my build_dir_reuse is good enough.

	* Todo: invent a test for build_dir_reuse. It should construct a YAML
	file before test start that will then be picked up and lead to some
	"already in..." which we test for. And then we use force to actually get
	that distro. Or we do that for an inexistent distro so that we do not
	have to rewrite the test after each new release? DONE in rev. 1152

2006-10-25  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Todo: if the user does not want to install a module (say a
	build_requires), give him options to use the already tested module even
	after he has left the shell.

	Ilya seems to say, people do NOT want to install a number of modules
	because they are not yet sure if they really need them. But they have
	tested them and have them still lying around in their ~/.cpan/build
	directory. So we should give them a chance to use them next time they
	come around with the same perl.

	DONE in rev. 1140 with build_dir_reuse

	* Todo: put the distro ID close to the OK or NOT OK line DONE in rev.
	1136 or so.

	* What was the deal with

Package 'CPAN' already declared with version '1.88_57'
ignoring new version ''.
Looks good



	* Since DBI is fixed I see other interesting breakages: Class::DBI,
	RPC::PlServer, GD.

	GD fails with 5.8.8 and 5.8.3

	Class::DBI fails with 5.8.8

	RPC::PlServer fails with 5.8.8 and 5.8.3 but only if Crypt::DES is

	OK, so nothing new.

2006-10-24  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Coro 2.0 works with bleadperl Yay! YAML for Coro with default answers

	* bug with notest pragma: it seems to remain in the distro object. I did
	a report DAGOLDEN/CPAN-Reporter-0.28_51.tar.gz, then I did a "notest
	install" on it. Then I reloaded and tried a "report" on it again and
	CPAN refused to run the test because of the notest pragma.

	FIXED in rev. 1132 but what is a good test for it? test WRITTEN in 1133.

2006-10-23  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* The ->VERSION bug was back for a short while. It happens when
	version.pm is not installed and Module::Build loads its own version.pm
	from <data>. There it finds 0.661 and this does something that isn't
	fool proof, very hard to diagnose and to reproduce. Easy workaround: do
	not check for Module::Signature->VERSION anymore. The test was on 0.26
	and we now have 0.55, so I guess, I can remove the version test.

	As soon as I have means to not call into Module::Build, this bug will
	diappear for sure, so no need to hunt it down from here. FINISHED in
	rev. 1123

	So recall: one can turn off sig_check, then install version, then leave
	and enter CPAN.pm and the bug should disappear. Or we release 1.88_57
	now. Update: I released 1.88_57 immediately after that.

	* SMPETERS fixed DBI-1.52. Thank you! YAML for DBI with patch address

2006-10-23  Andreas J Koenig  <akoenig@iconmobile.com>

	* make a list of cpanconfig variables that can be changed via
	distroprefs. Extend the list and document it, so that people can look it
	up and do not have to read the source and can file bug reports against

	I fear for example that the preferred builder is not configurable(?)
	latter half FIXED in rev. 1124

	First half done with rev. 1125

	* Write an executive summary of the state of affairs wrt. distroprefs so
	we can decide about future directions. Update the README file to better
	outline the executive summary. Update the examples to better reflect our
	powers and weaknesses.

	What we have:

	- Give the user a simple system to store per-distro preferences related
	to environment variables, commandline args and stdin for the four
	commands of our traditional mantra: perl Makefile.PL, make, make test,
	make install (and symmetrically for M:B modules)

	- Give the user the option to patch distros with arbitrary patches from
	local disk or CPAN

	What we aim at:

	- Give the users a simple means to exchange their preferences to reduce
	the overhead of maintaining them. As it currently stands, those YAML
	files devaluate quickly as new distros arrive.

2006-10-23  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* release a 1.8802 with the HTML::Mason workaround? Because it may take
	a while until 1.89 is ready to go. DONE in rev. 1120

2006-10-22  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Todo: gzipped patches; DONE in rev. 1103

	* patches that are not separate files but live in the YAML file? REJECT
	unless somebody requests it.

2006-10-21  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* add CPAN::Reporter to Bundle::CPAN (which version of CPAN.pm needs
	CPAN::Reporter currently? -- 1.88) WAITING for OK from David Golden

	* Tina suggests: if the user has changed some config variable via 'o
	conf' mechanism and has not yet saved the new config via 'o conf commit'
	and is leaving the shell without saving, we could trigger a dialog.
	#22396 talks about this.

	After some thinking: maybe I prefer just a loud warning instead of a
	hanging terminal. Hmmm.

	This is a critical/showstopper thing because people perceive it as a
	bug. rev. 1114 FIXES

	* Todo: find out the remaining relevant pieces of Ilya's patch:

	(1) better logging (maybe with the help of CPAN::Reporter?) I said below
	that we have colors now, but fact is that you have to scroll back and if
	you install 100 modules, you cannot investigate without disturbing the
	process. One would like to study STDOUT and STDERR in a separate window.

	(2) "cpantok#" keep some test OK state between sessions. I see no strong
	need for this ATM.

	* just a memo what I usually install:

	    o debug CPAN Distribution
	    install YAML::Syck Expect YAML Bundle::CPAN Module::Signature CPAN::Reporter Math::BigInt::GMP Plagger Bundle::Phalanx100 Jifty

	YAML::Syck after Bundle::CPAN did not turn off interactivity.

	YAML::Syck before Bundle::CPAN worked well.

	CPAN::Reporter before YAML worked well but we want to catch the early
	YAML interactivity (which in turn can be avoided with YAML::Syck).

	* as long as HTML::Mason/Module::Build are broken, we should use
	Bundle::HTML::Mason? Alas, it doesn't list HTML::Entities. And after
	that it still fails on 07-interp.t. Ah, ok. Report sent. But can we
	patch it? DONE

	* Maybe add support for more CPAN::Config variables in distroprefs

	* Todo: document the trailing dot and that it is useful in a Bundle file
	and that there is a LOCAL.trailing_dot_distros.yml in the distroprefs
	directory. DONE in rev. 1093

	* Todo: extend patch ability to files from CPAN to be downloaded on the
	fly DONE in rev. 1089

2006-10-20  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* highest prio: patches. Easy to test with an example against one of my
	failing dummy distros. DONE in rev. 1086

	* add 'perl' to the matches stuff of distroprefs DONE in rev. 1087

	* When we have support for patches and apply patches, we should also
	disable reporting through CPAN::Reporter. DONE in rev. 1088

2006-10-19  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Ilya's patch

	svn cp -r 131 https://pause.perl.org:5460/svn/cpanpm/trunk https://pause.perl.org:5460/svn/cpanpm/branches/1.76-ilya200610

	https://pause.perl.org:5460/svn/cpanpm/branches/1.76-ilya200610 now lives in


	and the patch is applied and checked in. Ready for studying.

	Original discussion: google groups for prerequisites_policy expire_old_builds.

	Today I would suggest

	(1) prio 1!: organize patching into distroprefs, full path within the
	YAML file seems acceptable (DONE)

	(2) organize logging into distroprefs via redirection (might be easy but
	prio low because we have colors now)

	(3) keep the new meaning of the trailing dot, it does not interfere with
	patching as it is for *personal* distrodirectories (make sure it works
	with local bundles! (DONE[it did already])). For local distros one does
	not need patching (and if you do, you know what you're doing).

	(4) mark_tested_ok is similar to distcc/ccache and could probably be
	implemented as such. The time consuming step on perl distros is 'make
	test' and that makes it very complicated. One would need a checksum of
	perl AND all used modules during the test. Like for example File::Slurp
	failing with current combination of perl and Test::Pod::Coverage but
	succeeding without T:P:C

	Poor man's variant of it may be one that works only with a perl checksum
	or mtime as Ilya did. Still seems outside the scope of CPAN.pm but
	should be supported once it works outside with simple mantra.

	For now, distroprefs give you a different 'make' command for a
	permanently-known-to-be-tested module, that might be just 'true' on UNIX
	or something to do with distcc/ccache-like solution.

	That might be annoying if one works with different perls and want to
	have different modules marked as tested_ok. Maybe we need to add "perl"
	into the "match" structure? (Yes!) (DONE)

	(5) Faszinating is the idea to leave the shell and come back into the
	same state of already tested but uninstalled modules. But why are they
	not installed? Hrm, maybe because once installed, nobody will re-test
	them? Need further arguments.

	(6) install_tested is the normal default when running 'install' instead
	of 'test'. What's the deal?

	(7) containsdists is implemented but nowhere used, so what?

	(8) I have not yet understood the distinction between force_test and
	force_update and the call $self->test('install') seems bogus.

	* just a memo what I usually install:

	    o debug CPAN Distribution
	    force install Expect
	    install YAML Bundle::CPAN Module::Signature CPAN::Reporter Math::GMP Math::BigInt::GMP Plagger Bundle::Phalanx100 Jifty

	YAML::Syck after Bundle::CPAN did not turn off interactivity.

	YAML::Syck before Bundle::CPAN worked well.

	CPAN::Reporter before YAML worked well but we want to catch the early
	YAML interactivity (which in turn can be avoided with YAML::Syck).

	* From David Golden forwarded rt.cpan.org #20979

     head -13 C:/vanilla-perl/perl/lib/CPAN/Config.pm|tail -1
     'cpan_home' => q[C:\vanilla-perl\.cpan\],

	FIXED in rev. 1071.

	* In case somebody asks again, this is from Test::Harness 2.62

+    * Restored the behavior of dying if any subtests failed.  This is a

	Ah, it's quite fast.

	* write a dummy distro that reads arguments to Makefile.PL and another
	one that reads something from STDIN (or maybe both in one) DELAYED until
	the distroprefs stuff leaves the alpha stage.

	* Measure kwalitee with Module::CPANTS::Analyse before uploading. That
	way we can catch bugs in M:C:A itself or in its dependencies. DELAYED
	because currently M:C:A doesn't pass its own tests.

	* write a test with new dummy modules PrerecqurseI and II (or CircDep?)
	Take t/CPAN/authors/id/A/AN/ANDK/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make as the
	source and
	t/CPAN/authors/id/A/AN/ANDK/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-CircDepeOne as
	target. DONE in rev. 1031

	* Schwern reopened 21144. Go resolve, I have promised before the next
	release. FIXED in rev. 1016 and 1018

2006-10-13  Andreas J Koenig  <akoenig@*c*nm*b*l*.com>

	* Slaven want direct support for $Config->{make} and
	make_install_make_command so that it can be set to gnumake for PDL on
	freebsd. DONE in rev 1015

	* Slaven says that no user knows the distroname as well as the module
	name. ==> Change the prefs hash structure. "qr" shall be replaced by
	"match" and contain "module" and/or "distro" which are ANDed conditions
	and each may contain a regex. We probably will rename all distroprefs
	files too. DONE in rev. 1013/14

2006-10-13  Andreas J Koenig  <akoenig@*c*nm*b*l*.com>

	Holy crap! Recursive installation where we are just eager to maintain a
	clean and efficient queue of installation objects and could do it
	ourselves so easily? And besides that, the INC path is not our INC path,
	so I always get a different CPAN version. While the latter is only
	disturbing a minority, it's a BUUUUUUG to go recursive.

	Not only does it cost memory, this child is also uninformed about failed

	This needs to be fixed.

	The manpage of M:AI says it checks if it is running under CPAN.pm. Maybe
	this check is wrong? Apparently yes.

2006-10-12  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* restructure the prefs YAML files to have cpanconfig as key and all
	CPAN.pm configs inside that. That gives room to cpanplus. DONE

	* why did MIYAGAWA/XML-Atom not work? -- Because it asked us twice but
	our yaml file only answered once FIXED.

	* improve feedback when you pick a file for prefs settings, maybe store
	the picked yaml file in the distro object. DONE.

	* test if you can get around single modules by specifying
	prefs->{make}{nosuchtarget}. Interesting for MailTools or DBI in current
	bleadperl. EXACTLY! (and tested)

2006-10-08  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Nice to have: CPAN::MyDistroPrefs to store arguments and expect
	scripts to Makefile.PL/make/test/install based on regexes being matched
	against the distroname. (think libwww, ReadLine, perl-ldap, Apache-Test,
	and always questions from Module::AutoInstall, Carp::Clan asks if I want
	a prereq for testing from Makefile.PL, Net::DNS ask if I want to run
	tests over the internet, mod_perl or Apache::Test asks me for the apache
	executable, Authen-PAM asks me for a password, Module::Signature asks
	for importing the key)

	Name? DistroPrefs is good. Customize is not so good because one would
	expect that it is related to 'o conf'. Distro must be in the name.
	DistroCustomize is too long so DistroBuildEnv seems completely out of
	band. Only Prefs is tempting but again too easily confusable with 'o
	conf' stuff. Something completely different? Its about Env, Args, Stdin.
	BuildInput? Distrinput? Distrin? No. DistroPrefs the long word, prefs
	the short one. 'reload prefs' might be a command if we need it at all.

	ALL DONE in rev. 1015; well, left in alpha state

	* Todo/buglet: turn on debug "CPAN" and find the reason why
	incommandcolor is quite often not reset.

	First example is "Net::Stomp" with a prereq of Class::Accessor::Fast.
	After it and its prereq are installed, the module Class::Accessor::Fast
	and the distro K/KA/KASEI/Class-Accessor-0.25.tar.gz are both still in
	command state.

	So it's something with follow_prereqs.

	Seems to be fixed with rev. 980 but needs to stay on the watchlist

	No, I just tried Bundle::Phalanx100 and the majority of modules was in
	commandcolor and many were neither installed nor reported as failed, so
	the rev. 908 may be buggier than we ever were?? Maybe its just the "run
	it twice" problem due to late dependency resolving. Oh and watch the
	ugly bug that shows up when makeing Mason!

	AHHHH, that is fixable with eval! FIXED in rev. 981.

2006-10-07  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Todo: clean up XXX

	* automatic testing? Is it anywhere documented what the impacts of

	* new keyword capture? CPAN::Reporter does not know the output of the
	commands before "test" and cannot report about compilation failures.
	This looks like a major flaw to me:-(

	* E1: Nice to have: make YAML vs. YAML::Syck switchable. Another
	advantage would be that we could remove YAML from the Bundle. DONE rev. 986

	* reload cpan should be based on timestamps. Fixed in rev. 979

	* Bug via Bundle::Phalanx100? Shortly after perl-ldap-0.33 I see 

Unknown require type for 'G/GB/GBARR/Convert-ASN1-0.20.tar.gz', setting to 'r'. This should not happen and is construed a bug.

Unknown require type for 'A/AG/AGROLMS/GSSAPI-0.23.tar.gz', setting to 'r'. This should not happen and is construed a bug.

	Todo: see after it. I think it's AutoInstall.

	Fixed in rev. 979

Appending installation info to /usr/local/perl-5.8.8/lib/5.8.8/i686-linux-64int/perllocal.pod

	What I had done was to install CPAN::Reporter but forgot the sudo for
	make. Then I added the sudo to make_install_make_command and did a
	'force get' and then the above. The install was successful in the end
	but the "Sorry" message was written in red and completely bogus and
	together with the 'Refusing to autoload' message was frightening.


	Trying to reproduce by setting both m*_install_*_command variables to
	"false", then install CPAN::Reporter. This gives a long list of failed
	installs at the end. Then 'install File::Copy::Recursive' works as
	expected: already tried without success. Then 'force get F:C:R' works as
	expected. And then again 'install File::Copy::Recursive' works as
	expected: tests again and tries to install.

	Shhhhhhh, so I cannot reproduce this, something must have been different.

	GIVEN UP: this did not show up again in any test

	DONE in rev. 952

	* Todo: investigate if we want a different amount of newlines depending
	on readline availability. Who is it who displays the extra newline as
	soon as readline is active? It is apparently coming from readline and I
	see no reason to interfere. REJECT

	* Todo: send a patch to P5P that adds Queue.pm to the MANIFEST.

	* Todo: add to 30shell the case of repeated testing that was fixed in
	rev 915

	* Attention when testing: Lingua::Alphabet::Phonetic::Password makes
	Test::Pod a "build_requires"; Lingua::Alphabet::Phonetic makes it a
	"requires" instead. So we have it both as "r" and "b" in the queue and
	the first one wins over the other. So once we have something not
	installed due to "b", we cannot install it anymore unless we use
	force:-( It would be nice to make this less confusing for the user and
	resolvable without force for the expert.

	This warrants new tests in 30shell. Let's do diamond dependency:
	CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Build shall build_require
	CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make and require CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-Zip.
	And CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make-Zip shall require
	CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make. We have not tested install yet (I think) and
	we can try to set make_install_make_command to a perl oneliner or so.
	This constallation shall try to install CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Make
	because requires trumps build_requires.

	Interactive testing strategy right now:

	rm -f /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/prCXKHM/perl-5.8.0@28904/lib/site_perl/5.9.4/CPAN/Test/Dummy/Perl5/Build.pm /home/src/perl/repoperls/installed-perls/perl/prCXKHM/perl-5.8.0@28904/lib/site_perl/5.9.4/CPAN/Test/Dummy/Perl5/Make/Zip.pm

	That brings me to the idea that it would be nice to add these

	* Todo: test bundles and reqtype; especially when you do NOT install
	things because this opens new branches of code execution DONE

	* Todo: ... and finally we will have to carefully differentiate what we
	do with the things that we get off the queue: breqs shall not be
	installed. And we need a user pref here: treat build_requires as
	requires would have the advantage that the build_requires stuff be
	installed and may save time on the next occasion.

	This needs to be coordinated with David because it breaks
	CPAN::Reporter. Hi, Dave!

	New config option build_requires_install_policy: yes|no|ask/no|ask/yes

	* So what was 886 about? Put CPAN::Queue in its own file.

	* Bug introduced between 881 and 886. If a Module::Build module fails,
	we happily take it as an OK. CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Build-Fails reveals
	the bug. Going back step by step with 'svn up -r XXX' we see what was
	broke too: 885, 884, 883, 882, 881!!!

	What!??? 881 was a release! Between 879 and 881 no code changed.

	878 was a bit different. And 877. And all have this bug suddenly.

	So I start to believe it is a bug in the maint-5.8 branch or in some
	module we installed since. My maint is 28854 right now.

	Testing again with bleadperl and 886: NOT BROKEN!

	The only two modules out of date in my blead are Class::Accessor and

	Outdated modules in current maint-5.8:

	CGI CPAN Devel::PPPort Digest Encode ExtUtils::Command ExtUtils::Install
	ExtUtils::Manifest ExtUtils::ParseXS IO Locale::Maketext Math::Complex
	Sys::Syslog Term::ANSIColor Test::Builder Test::Harness Text::Balanced
	Text::Soundex Text::Tabs Tie::RefHash Time::HiRes Time::Local
	Unicode::Normalize threads threads::shared

	Updated as much as I could and ALL IS WELL.

	So now we don't know who was to blame. Restarting over and going step by
	step: it was Test::Harness 2.58. So we have a difficult-to-explain
	dependency here: CPAN + Module::Build-deploying modules + Test::Harness
	< 2.62 leads to not recognized test failures. I put Test::Harness into
	the Bundle::CPAN. Maybe I must verify the Test::Harness version before
	testing MB modules? FIXED by making T:H 2.62 a PREREQ_PM and testing
	again in the code. In rev. 888

	* Todo: 'dump symbol', say 'dump $CPAN::META'. But pipe into the pager
	for large datasets! DONE in rev. 885

	* build_requires: need two modules that have build_dependencies which I
	do not install and still both must build. This means, I inject the
	build_dependencies into the queue and flag them as build_dependency
	which then leeds to a simple make or test for them, never to an install.
	Up to now we use set_perl5lib during CPAN::Distribution::test. In the
	future we would need a similar vein during the two earlier stages,
	{Makefile,Build}.PL and make. Yes, this should do.

	Where are our build_requires? I keep forgetting the URL where Randy Sims
	provides so useful statistics. Here it is:

	And the build_requires page is here:

	But manually skimming the 876 distros is tedious, so I need again my own

	One thing is complicated: when a module is a build_prereq, then all
	*its* prereqs are also degraded into build_prereqs unless they are
	already prereqs for something else:-! And then we have the diamond
	dependency: Foo build_requires Bar and requires Baz. Bar requires Frob,
	Baz requires Frob. So we make it a bit operation: REQ => 1, BREQ => 2?

	OK, candidates for my tests:

	MARCEL/Class-Null                         Test::Pod::Coverage

	Not suited for testing. It has a Build.PL that requires Project::Build
	which does not exist at all and when a user preferes Module::Build over
	ExtUtils::MakeMaker he fails immediately. It has a Makefile.PL that has
	Test::Pod and Test::Pod::Coverage as PREREQ_PM and it has a META.yml
	that tells me that Test::Pod and Test::Pod::Coverage are build_requires.
	But when I grep for Test::Pod and Test::Pod::Coverage, they are not
	mentioned anywhere. The solution would be to remove the Build.PL and the
	META.yml and remove the PREREQ_PM lines in the Makefile.PL.
	JFITZ/Lingua-Alphabet-Phonetic-Password   Test::Pod::Coverage

	Need to set prefer_installer MB because it comes with a Makefile.PL. The
	dependecy graph seems to get very large. Test::NoBreakpoints failes its
	tests. But in the end, L:A:P:P passes its four tests quickly and skips
	the one that need Test::NoBreakpoints. Vorbildlich!

	Very stupid is CPAN.pm when I repeat the 'test L:A:P:P' command: it
	repeats all tests for all dependencies and only then runs the test on
	L:A:P:P. This is time-consuming and may be a bug or a feature. Don't
	know the reason. FIXED in rev. 915

2006-09-21  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* I have seen this bug with 5.6.2, 5.8.3, 5.8.4, 5.8.5; it seems not to
	effect bleadperl and 5.8.8, 5.8.6-RC1

	Once you have installed both Module::Signature AND CPAN::Reporter, you
	cannot test both of them in the same session. E.g. with 5.8.4 I do

	test Module::Signature
	--> tests ok, do you want to report? no,no,no
	test CPAN::Reporter
	--> tests ok, debug says "main: distribution\nmain:\
	comments\nCPAN::Reporter defines neither package nor VERSION--version\
	check failed at (eval 70) line 405."
	test Module::Signature
	--> tests ok, debug says "main: distribution\nmain:\
	comments\nCPAN::Reporter defines neither package nor VERSION--version\
	check failed at (eval 70) line 405."

	"version check failed" is in

=item %s defines neither package nor VERSION--version check failed

(F) You said something like "use Module 42" but in the Module file
there are neither package declarations nor a C<$VERSION>.

	So I spot this line in CPAN::Reporter:

    $tr->via( 'CPAN::Reporter ' . CPAN::Reporter->VERSION );

	and I change it to

    $tr->via( 'CPAN::Reporter ' . $CPAN::Reporter::VERSION );

	and the bug is worked around.

	Repeating experiments with CPAN::Reporter and Net::SMTP and AUTOMATED_TESTING

	I just started with a fresh blead@28875 and the command

	    install CPAN::Reporter Bundle::CPAN Module::Signature Devel::Symdump

	and all reports that CPAN::Reporter offered were accepted by me. So
	tomorrow morning I expect reports on testers.cpan.org above the FAIL for
	DBIx-Timeout. Then I can install Mail::Send again and send a few reports
	and then I can set AUTOMATIC_TESTING and on the next perl I can do that
	in opposite order.

	7 hours later nothing shows up on http://testers.cpan.org/recent.html

	I'd better go subscribe to cpan-testers. Now I am subscribed and I
	re-tested with blead@28876 and while Mail::Send does send out messages
	since I added the MASQUERADE_AS line, they do not come back to me. I
	need to change the email_to to me on the next try.... And yes, the mail
	arrives. Apparently it is not accepted at testers, only Net::SMTP gets
	through. Maybe some MX thingie going on.

2006-09-19  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* repeating the exercise of testing CPAN::Reporter

	blead@28868: install CPAN::Reporter and its dependencies (no MailTools
	but Net::SMTP ist there). Testing TAPx::Parser fails miserably, the
	report seems to be sent. Testing CGI::Session succeeds with lots of
	SKIPs. The report seems to have been sent. Testing Module::Signature
	succeeds with just a single test, report seems to have been sent.
	Installing CPANPLUS::Dist::Build installs among many other dependencies
	CPANPLUS itself, the latter succeeds and I let CPAN::Reporter send a
	mail which seems to work.

	Now I install Mail::Mailer and succeed. The Mail is still sent by
	Net::SMTP and apparently succeeds.

	Now let's try IO::Tty. Tests succeed but it's a test.pl based distro, so
	CPAN::Reporter cannot send mail. To get to a quick end, I now test
	CPAN::Reporter itself. It pretends to send mail, from the debug output I
	recognize Mail::Mailer. And now I have two mails in the mqueue with
	"Could not resolve k75.linux.bogus". QED.

	MASQUERADE_AS(`franz.ak.mind.de')dnl in the sendmail.mc seems to have
	done the trick.

	* find out why CPAN::Reporter cannot send mail on my home machine

	Somebody seems to try to send mail and using the local address
	(k75.linux.bogus) in a HELO or something. I'm testing with

	Installed modules? Mail::Send from MailTools? Net::SMTP from libnet?

	MailTools no, N:S yes.

	Ah, Test::Reporter says "If you have MailTools installed". Hmmm. This
	test succeeded today with blead@28866. Will have to wait again to see a

	So now I have MailTools installed and now I see again the message

	* Test the urllist dialog. Requires a fake mirrored.by file. DONE in rev. 851

	* Todo: test many cases:

	if we have a urllist, if have none: can we always hit RETURN and reach
	the end, especially if we already have a previous pick? Once upon a time
	the user may have been able to reach the previous pick from the
	continent question. The hint is the $no_previous_warn variable.

	if we say 'o conf init'...yes/no (yes is what the shell test does, so
	there's no need here to investigate this branch)

	What's about the SPACE RETURN thing, is it broken and since when? It
	seems it works again, maybe since rev. ???

	* http://www.flight.us/misc/FirstTime.pm_AStrebkov.htm (E3) and
	by Andrew Strebkov makes the URL selection nicer.

	It allows hyphenated ranges like 10-14. It also fixed the SPACE RETURN
	bug that seems to be fixed now anyway. DONE in rev 848

	* MAYBE change syntax for 'o conf init MATCH' to require two slashes for
	the regex version just for ortogonality. REJECTED because this argument
	does not have the same magic as other arguments that may be several
	different types of strings.

	documented in the POD. DONE in rev. 831

2006-09-12  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* rev 807 broken (and _62 was most likely broken too): prompt namespaces
	now too much voodoo. FirstTime::_real_prompt is not defined everywhere.
	Goto the drawing board

	CPAN::Shell::colorable_makemaker_prompt used in package CPAN and
	CPAN::Distribution uses ExtUtils::MakeMaker::prompt

	CPAN::FirstTime::_real_prompt is local in CPAN::FirstTime::init for
	colorizable and later for a closure and yet later again directly for
	colorizable again

	CPAN::FirstTime::prompt is used within CPAN::FirstTime::init many times

	my_dflt_prompt uses prompt

	my_yn_prompt uses prompt

	my_prompt_loop uses prompt

	conf_sites uses prompt

	picklist uses prompt

	bring_your_own uses prompt

	prompt uses _realprompt

	Q.E.D. _real_prompt  may be undefined. Stupid. FIXED in rev. 825

	825 also fixes 5.8.0 which always matched each prompt twice. All I had
	to do was to change the tests so that no non-prompt-match ever matches a
	prompt accidentally

2006-09-11  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Todo: again go testing with several perl versions.

	Especially the urllist dialog needs test cases. But older perls as well
	need attention.

2006-09-09  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Tempted to give up on Term::ANSIColor. If I turn on colorize_output in
	TestConfig.pm, then we do not pass tests. Somehow loading of
	Term::ANSIColor changes too much.

	utf8 handling wrong with ANSIColor; err, no, only an emacs issue.

	several '# Can't exec "./Build": No such file or directory at /home/k/sources/CPAN/SVN/blib/lib/CPAN.pm line 5477.'

	Yes, this is reproducable. The Makefile target
	testshell-with-protocol-twice runs the testsuite once with
	colorize_output off and once with on and we see that colorize breaks the
	tests. Todo: make the difference between colorize and not colorize as
	small as possible, then we know which lines we can blame.

	Yes, now I have it reproducable and the blame is clearly not on
	Term::ANSIColor but on some perl leakage. To demonstrate the bug, set
	the $demobug variable in CPAN.pm to a true value. Then run make
	testshell-with-protocol-twice. I seen the second run with
	colorize_output==TRUE fail. Maybe it's the use of the regex, I don;t
	know yet. Need to narrow down.

	But the important step is that I now have a workaround and can support
	colorization with just a small compromize. AND I can turn the bug on and
	investigate in many different contexts. FIXED all that in 809

	The $demobug thing is underdocumented!
2006-09-08  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	directly. DONE

2006-09-07  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bugs in FirstTime: print and warn not unified; needs to be
	investigated: two calls to warn replaced with print in rev. 803:
	somebody ate the warnings, they were not displayed for unknown reasons.
	Update: no, the warnings were not dropped but the global value of
	$CPAN::Config->{urllist} was emptied when I interrupted the selection
	process. Fixed in 804-807 or so.

	turned out that histsize really depends on histfile and they should be
	asked as a pair. But then I tried 'ftp' which hit several options,
	'^ftp$', '\bftp\b' which both did not match at all and I wondered if

	There I find the train hackathon result was in 689 and 686 was the copy

	So I guess the merge command would have to be

	  dynamic_config was a major major design mistake, that they got
	  entirely backwards. It relies on authors to not forget to set the
	  dynamic flag, or it results in a failed install.
	  But of course, nobody ever does remember to set it, and we have a huge
	  number of existing modules that don't do this properly.
	  There is no problem at all in us having the requires values considered
	  to be "advisory" only, and then "localize" the dependencies.
	  In short, the flag should have actually been the other way around
	  (i.e. static_config) and so dynamic_config should ALWAYS be 1, unless
	  you have it EXPLICITLY set to 0.
	  We may or may not be able to get the spec revised later on, but in the
	  mean time, dynamic_config should aways be 1 unless you have an
	  explicit 0, not just when there is no requires field.
	  This makes installation potentially a bit slower, and less able to
	  shortcut, but it makes sure that installation remains correct.

	I just tried to make this a Todo item but then checked the code and
	found it bahaves already as Adam suggests. ---> DONE

	Add it to your "requires" hash, that way it will end up in META.yml and
	if people have YAML installed, they can read it.
	If people have YAML not installed they will call either the
	Makefile.PL or the Build.PL to hopefully find out what the
	prerequisites are. That way you get the prerequisites but as you have
	noticed, it is too late for your build process.
	I don't know how I will fix that. Suggestions welcome. I put it into my
	Todo file.
	* Feature request: when asking 'm /svn::notify/', then I would like to

  It would not work for distros, but for modules. Not for bundles either.

	if there is no CPAN/Config.pm, we must initialize one immediately. If we

	/usr/local/perl-5.8.0@27277/lib/5.8.8/CPAN/Config.pm as I just tested it
	with 5.8.8.

	So if root installs CPAN without testing it, they have no CPAN/Config.pm.
	They start it and land immediately in the init process. Good.

	If he runs 'make test' it should succeed all tests. Currently it fails
	12cpan and skips 30shell because of 'no Expect'. ==> TODO. DONE with

	If they have no CPAN/Config.pm and start cpan as an ordinary user, then

Got another SIGINT

cpan[11]> ls GAAS

	After that, the problem was not reproducable. Remove and reinstall perl,
	install CPAN, install Bundle::CPAN, install Bundle::Spd works.

	So we have a hard to reproduce bug.

Warning: No checksum for Net-Daemon-0.39.tar.gz in /home/k/.cpan/sources/authors/id/J/JW/JWIED/CHECKSUMS.

The cause for this may be that the file is very new and the checksum

going awry right now.
Proceed? [yes] 

	This time I look immediately into the CHECKSUMS file (which is the cached
	one!) and indeed there is no Net-Daemon-0.39.tar.gz in it. On the CPAN
	we do have a newer checksums file. Is this cool?

	So we have the root of the cause. Now for a solution?

	I can answer 'no' and then reproduce the problem. Note that the old
	CHECKSUMS file is 3 months old and its timestamp is 1 month old.

	Fixed in 638 with the new argument $sloppy for CHECKSUM_check_file, but
	test still missing. ... Test added by adding CHECKSUMS@588 in rev. 643

	If I now start a new CPAN session, I can install Net::LDAP without problems.

	If I uninstall Convert::ASN1 and start a new CPAN session I can get
	nearly the same result:

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/k/.cpan/build/Convert-ASN1-0.19'
  sudo make install UNINST=1 -- OK
*** Convert::ASN1 successfully installed.
*** ExtUtils::AutoInstall installation finished.

make[1]: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/k/.cpan/build/perl-ldap-0.33'
  /usr/bin/make  -- NOT OK

	On the other hand, running same thing on a 5.8.7 with 1.83 succeeds, but
	it asks me if I want to run sudo (and I say no and again no).

	Now I tried bleadperl@27016 with its 1.8359: 'install YAML' then
	'install Net::LDAP' and got the same error.

	Now I try perl-5.8.8-RC1 with its 1.83: it succeeds but asks me again if
	I want to run sudo.

	5.8.8-RC1 with 1.8362: succeeds and asks me if I want to run sudo.

	blead@26447 with 1.8362: error.

	What is it about, the ExtUtils::AutoInstall line? ExtUtils::AutoInstall
	is NOT part of the core. Net::LDAP comes with version 0.59, Audrey has
	reached 0.63.

	I think it goes like so:

	have no perm -> ask sudo -> user says no -> success
	have perm       implicit yes             -> failure

	This is consistent with all of above.... After some more investigation
	reported as bug to Audrey and Graham

2006-01-30  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Revisit 17313: Module::Build people have promised to write a
	./Build.bat file instead of a ./Build file on Windows. Until this
	becomes true, hide mbuild_install_build_command from Windows users.

2006-01-29  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Foreign bug: broke perl again YAML? blead@26994 fails on test
	dump-perl-types.t of YAML-0.53. Wrote blame report about 26980--DONE

2006-01-27  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Foreign bug: Email::Field or which module was it that just produced
	more than 1000000 eval warnings? Cannot reproduce.

	* bug: if a META.yml specifies a prerequisite module that we do not
	know, the whole prereq_pm became undef. FIXED in rev. 480.

2006-01-26  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug: illegal entries in the Config hash are never removed and a hash
	cannot be emptied. The latter is FIXED with rev. 475, the former with
	rev. 476.

	* Bug (Tyler MacDonald): OK, I've figured out what went wrong: 0.27_06
	isn't on www.cpan.org/pub/CPAN yet. However, *how* it went wrong is
	truly bizzare: LWP returned a "404 not found" error, yet somehow I still
	ended up with a .tar.gz and .tar file, and CPAN thinking it had actually
	downloaded something. This looks like a bug in CPAN.pm, both in the 1.7
	version that's distributed with 5.8.7, and the latest release, 1.83.

	In my environment, this comes from curl. After fixing the curl switches,
	the problem persists. This time is lynx to blame, but for lynx there is
	no commandline switch that propagates a 404 to a false. So we now read
	the file that lynx sends us and heuristically decide if it is an error
	message. FIXED in revision 477.

2006-01-25  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug: META.yml may contain build_requires which for example File::BOM
	specifies. It doesn't matter that I believe that it is not a
	build_requires, it is really a requires because only tests fail, not the
	build process. But I must merge the two hashes. FIXED in rev. 471

	* Foreign bug: YAML with bleadperl fails a test which succeeds with
	maintperl. REPORTED

	* Bug: with 1.8358 from the core CPAN says after the start
	"lib/CPAN/Config.pm initialized" and goes into the init dialog. After ^C
	I find a lib/CPAN/Config.pm file.

	Ahhh, that's how 'o conf commit' had written my dontload_hash: producing
	a syntax error. FIXED in  rev. 466

2006-01-24  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* 5 new bugs from in RT: 17237 17238 17241 17242 17266

	17237 may be fixed with rev. 464 but not yet tested.

	rev. 465 continued to work on 17237 and I consider it fixed now.

	rev. 467 fixes 17238

	rev. 465 also is an answer to 17241 because this was most likely not a bug

	rev. 469 fixes 17266

	17242 is the request to work with Win32::OLE which I could only reply to
	with 'patches welcome'

	* Bug: setting "o conf dontload_hash ''" breaks the shell: C<Can't use
	string ("") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at lib/CPAN.pm line
	833.> FIXED in rev 464.

2006-01-21  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* see if podlators 2.0.1 fixes the broken README and if so, switch back
	to ${PERL} in the Makefile.PL. FIXED in rev. 457

	* bug: while trying to install Bundle::CPAN, YAML was delayed "until
	after prerequisites" but later was not retried or maybe was retried but
	CPAN said, it was

Running make for I/IN/INGY/YAML-0.53.tar.gz
  Is already unwrapped into directory /home/k/.cpan/build/YAML-0.53
  Delayed until after prerequisites
Running make test
  Delayed until after prerequisites
Running make install
  Delayed until after prerequisites

	So the installation of Bundle::CPAN was not really tried to finish.

	The dependency chain is as follows:

	  YAML depends on Class::Spiffy and Test::Base
    Test::Base depends on Spiffy

	Bug is that ->{later} is not double checked when encountered. Fixed in
	rev. 454.

2006-01-18  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Foreign Bug: RDF::Simple has LWP::UserAgent as undeclared prereq???

	Running make against RDF::Simple pulls in a lot but it finally comes to
	an end. When I then run test, the whole load of modules starts testing
	and three fail their tests:

  ABW/AppConfig-1.56.tar.gz                    : make_test NO
  FLUFFY/Class-MethodMaker-2.08.tar.gz         : make_test NO
  ZOOLEIKA/RDF-Simple-0.22.tar.gz              : make_test NO

	paging back reveals: all the RDF::Simple tests fail due to missing
	LWP::UserAgent, RDF::Simple::Serialiser, and Class::MethodMaker. The
	latter two do not appear when I test against 5.8.8-tobe. REPORTED via

	AppConfig fails due to "Can't modify non-lvalue subroutine call at
	t/file.t line 112, <DATA> line 69." This is a 5.9.3 issue, we succeed
	with 5.8.8-tobe (@26917) REPORTED via p5p.

	Class-MethodMaker tests fail complaining that they cannot find
	Class::MethodMaker. This is also a 5.9.3 issue. Fully automated binary
	search is impossible unless I find a smaller test case. 26492 ok, 26493
	not ok. Ha! It is a Makefile.PL vs Build.PL issue! On RT #16241 I have
	added this observation.

2006-01-17  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* rt #17089 suggests that we have to care for M:B being installed when
	we find a distro that has only a Build.PL and no Makefile.PL

	AFAIR only CPAN::Metadata::RDF is a module that comes with Build.PL and
	without Makefile.PL, so it is the only one to test the bugreport. This
	takes *quite* a while because of prerequisites (Class::MethodMaker,
	Template::Toolkit, DateTime::TimeZone, DBD::SQLLite, LWP, etc.). And of
	course after all the prerequisites, we HAVE Module::Build, so must
	remove it again. FIXED in rev. 433

	* Foreign Bug? I must investigate DateTime::TimeZone separately. It
	wanted to install Module::Build on its own and then failed giving as a
	reason that Module::Build was not installed???

	It turns out the prereq_pm is undef for some reason. But prereq_pm is
	only built during the 'make' step and then not resetted during a 'force
	get'. The 'prereq_pm_detected' bit is set and I must leave/enter the
	shell to debug this. OK. I see a Makefile.PL that simply fails because
	Module::Build is not installed. At least it says what it wants, but we
	must be better prepared for such an attack. OK, I'll file a bugreport
	against both DateTime::TimeZone and Module::Build -- somebody has to
	confess that it is a prereq and write it into the META.yml. That's what
	I would say. DONE

2006-01-13  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug: when ~/.cpan/sources/authors/id/A/AN/ANDK/CPAN-1.83_54.tar.gz is
	not a tar file (because I mistyped a URL and got something else), then
	even "force get ANDK/CPAN-1.83_54.tar.gz" does not overwrite the bogus
	file. The stupid program just keeps complaining that the file is not a
	tarfile and I must remove it manually.

	Ahh, this bug needs not be fixed because it only happens when you have
	no Digest::SHA available. REJECT

	* Bug: $CPAN_config_loaded should be replaced with something like
	$INC{"CPAN/Config.pm"} || $INC{"CPAN/MyConfig.pm"} so that loading one
	of the two before starting the shell will do. Then revert patch 411.
	FIXED in rev. 418

	* Todo: see the newest cpan by brian. DONE (BDFOY/cpan-1.51.tar.gz)

2006-01-12  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug: We cannot determine the prereequisites of File::Find::Rule
	because we have no YAML installed and Richard uses Module::Build, so we
	have no Makefile to parse. There is some MB interface to get them. fixed
	in rev. 396

	* Bug: "install Bundle::CPAN Expect Test::Pod" currently failes
	correctly when we reach YAML because we cannot verify the signature. But
	we must not die, we must only set the correct status so the rest of the
	gang can be installed. Fixed in rev. 384

2006-01-11  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* what happens to "failed" when we reload the index? TESTED OK

	* force: I'd expect 'force ls' to always fetch fresh CHECKSUMS
	files. Currently it doesn't. FIXED in rev. 401

	* optimize "ls dowens": currently fetches D/CHECKSUMS and D/DO/CHECKSUMS
	even if we already have D/DO/DOWENS/CHECKSUMS. Is it worth fixing? NO

	* get rid of the summary currently provided by install bundle, its
	superceded by failed(). REJECT, maybe it's useful

	* Todo: document "failed" (and "status"?) DONE for failed, REJECT for status

	* today's rev. 374 of CPAN.pm should be partially reverted: while
	failed() looks good most of the time, it looks ugly that 'force install
	version' installs version and still failed reports:

Writing /usr/local/perl-5.8.0@26774/lib/site_perl/5.9.3/i686-linux-64int/auto/version/vxs/.packlist

  JPEACOCK/version-0.53.tar.gz                 : make_test NO

	Correct behaviour should be that the 'make_test NO' bit be nuked. FIXED
	in rev. 387

	Above that, the "prompt" change was only interesting during debugging.
	Nobody wants to see the internal number of commands in his prompt. FIXED
	in rev. 388

	* Bug: YAML fails to unpack because of bad signature. Retrying leads to
	prereq Test::Base failing due to bad signature. Retrying leads to
	running make test on YAML. dump reveals that somehow SIG_STATUS was set
	to YES. Ahh, that's the signature on the CHECKSUMS file. Need a new
	attribute for broken signatures. FIXED in rev. 374

	Debian's apt-get solve that? HALF-DONE in rev. 360: We now have the
	envariable CPAN_SHELL_LEVEL but I'd still like to make a change to the

	* Give every command a number and store that number in the object,

2005-12-30  Andreas J Koenig  <akoenig@cellular.de>

	* FirstTime needs a structure over each question or questiongroup so
	that we can ask single questions. Structure was brought by Jim Comie
	around rev. 355

	* Bug: "reload cpan" does not work if the old and the new CPAN.pm
	have a different path. I installed a new CPAN.pm from CPAN and it
	did remove the old /usr/share/perl/5.8/CPAN.pm but installed the
	new one as /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.7/CPAN.pm. The reload then
	always just said "0 subroutines redefined". FIXED in rev. 321

	* rev 315 fixed a path/permission problem with the use of basename() and
	I could see that the error message gets much better than before but we
	need a test case that shows that this strategy can really work in some
	cases. Maybe we need to store the tar file somewhere else to keep the
	tmp/ directory tidy. Also we must see what happens when we cannot remove
	the tmp/ directory. The list of broken distros in
	eg/find-module-install-sudo-bugs.pl will help. DONE

	* add eg/ to the MANIFEST? Not yet, the script is too much focused on a
	problem that is not of interest to others. REJECT

	* Bug: checksum mismatch on a file is being reported even when the
	file has 0 bytes. 0 bytes should clearly constitute the right/the
	duty to overwrite. FIXED in rev. 320

2005-12-29  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug suspected in Module::Install: it seems to run CPAN.pm in a
	subshell with sudo and so we get directories under build/ that we do not
	own. No release before this bug is traced down! Bugreport sent to Audrey
	a few minutes ago (already Friday, 0:30 Berlin time). Bug confirmed and
	has already been fixed in 0.37 and old distros must be redistroed. DONE

	* branching and merging: make current HEAD a branch "1.80_56plus" and
	roll HEAD back to contain only the zero-risk stuff (for maybe later
	releasing that as 1.81?) DONE

2005-11-30  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug: when the Metadata file has been read with the old version and
	CPAN reads the new index it does not update the version. Witness
	Crypt::Khazad. Once the Metadata are removed completely and built up
	correctly, everything is OK.

	Can be tested by running

	!print $CPAN::META->{readonly}{"CPAN::Module"}{"Crypt::Khazad"}{"CPAN_VERSION"} = "1.0"
	reload index

	This may have nothing to do with multidot versions, just some
	pessimization in the code dealing with replacement of META when
	re-reading index files. FIXED

2005-11-22  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* From: David Golden <david@hyperbolic.net>:

	> Also, "lack of distname support" is overblowing the situation.
	> Distnames are supported perfectly fine as long as you put it in the
	> proper syntax with author's ID and version.
	I think the problem Jim encountered is that "proper syntax" is part of
	the arcana of CPAN.  It's not obvious from the help:
	>  a,b,d,m  WORD or /REGEXP/  about authors, bundles, distributions, modules
	>  i        WORD or /REGEXP/  about anything of above
	>  r        NONE              reinstall recommendations
	>  ls       AUTHOR            about files in the author's directory
	Something that clarifies that AUTHOR/DIST-VERSION is a valid format
	would help.  Or rather, some specific example of what that WORD can be:
	  where WORD is either a module, bundle or author name or a
	  distribution name of the form AUTHOR/DISTRIBUTION-VERSION
	It's vaguely alluded to in the CPAN perldoc, but only in the section
	describing the four CPAN::* classes.
	A doc patch would be a quick fix for this.

	* is version in script/cpan OK? It was 1.3 in perl @25981! Same
	for Nox.pm FIXED

	* PAUSE key 2005? DONE

	* Need Releasenotes, the ChangeLog is a big mess with the numerous
	checkins that all were just testing the release cycle itself and
	not generating anything useful for the user. DONE

2005-11-02  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* Bug: why did the release only contain a ChangeLog up to release
	206 when we were at 212? Ah, I see, the disttest target does not
	make a to-be-released file, must be done by make dist. So the
	whole release was @206. No harm done because between 206 and 212 I
	only worked on the release target. I think I need a disttest of my
	own that takes the dist.tar.gz already built and tests it, not the
	one that builds a dist from the air again into the air and tests
	that. I want a real test of that file that is going to be
	released. Then I can live with 'make release' running both dist
	and disttest. I think. DONE
	* Bug: as a non-root user and first-time caller (no ~/.cpan/
	directory) I said "not ready for interactive configuration" and
	then said 'o conf init'. I got no questions asked but into a fast
	endless loop like so:

(1) Africa
(2) Asia
(3) Central America
(4) Europe
(5) North America
(6) Oceania
(7) South America
Select your continent (or several nearby continents) []

Sorry! since you don't have any existing picks, you must make a
geographic selection.

	until I hot ^C. *Very* Clever tricks with prompt?

	Reproducable as described. Leaving the shell and entering it again
	make it not reproducable. I must 'rm -rf ~/.cpan
	lib/CPAN/Config.pm' to reproduce. FIXED in rev 214

	* cpan> m Apache::AuthAny 
	Can't call method "upload_date" on an undefined value at /usr/perl-5.8.4/lib/5.8.4/CPAN.pm line 5761.

	FIXED in rev 186.

	* Slaven suggests a variable "permanently_connected" that helps to
	decide if a connection to the internet is available. Do ask the
	community if people care about such stuff. Slaven expects, some
	will care that the the 'm' and 'd' commands now make a connection
	to the internet. FIXED by introducing do_ls_on_m_and_d.

2005-10-20  Andreas J. Koenig  <andreas.koenig.gmwojprw@franz.ak.mind.de>

	* ChangeLog needs to be written by svn during make dist, and the
	dependencies must care for a rerun of 'perl Makefile.PL' when
	CPAN.pm gets edited. This would be 'svn log -r HEAD:131' for the
	ChangeLog, I think. FIXED

	* Bug: installing SWETH/IPv4.pm did not seem to work anymore.
	FIXED in revision 172.

	* Bug: there is a directory ZTANG/Text-PORE-102/ on CPAN with a
	single file README in it. ls chokes on ZTANG because of this. Is
	it a bug that the directory exists or is it a bug that it has no
	CHECKSUMS file? FIXED by simply removing the README file from

2005-10-12  Andreas J Koenig  <akoenig@cellular.de>

	* Bug: the nonsense command 'force ls andk' should just do a plain
	'ls andk'. Instead it complains: C<Warning: Cannot ls andk, don't
	know what it is.> FIXED in rev. 180

2005-10-11  Andreas J Koenig  <akoenig@cellular.de>

	* Bug: "o conf foo bar" should complain about invalid key "foo".
	It does instead set "foo" to "bar" and it happened to me to set
	"debug" to "all" and then I wondered why debugging was not turned
	on. Would it have complained, I would have found the correct
	command ("o debug all") much quicker. FIXED in rev. 178.

	* Same effect can be illustrated by changing to the source's root
	directory, running 'perl -Ilib -MCPAN -e shell', 'install
	Tie::CPHash' (or something else???) and then 'reload cpan'....
	Ahhh, this latter example it is a matter of somebody having turned
	off $^W globally:-)...FIXED

	cpan script should accept arguments as suggested by Matt Sergeant:
	   cpan install My::Foo
	Cache manager should read youngest directories first and start
	deleting without measuring as soon as the cache limit is reached.
	Rename 'o conf' to 'set' and 'o debug' to 'set debug'.
	Provide something, so that the next "o conf commit" will not overwrite
	the config file. maybe "myconfig_readonly"?
	I have a patch by Jochen Wiedmann that implements a per-distribution
	permanent configuration directory. The new containsmods() method in
	1.52 should help to fit the patch with the rest of CPAN.pm.
	Option to skip testing (Ask Bjoern Hansen).
	Default Argument for make,test,look,etc. could be the last argument???
	Make a preferred download method configurable (allow further download
	methods via plugin?)
	Allow different site preferences for index files and other files
	Replace make with Make
	Maintain the cache at runtime. Currently we only check it at startup.
	Distribute compressed CHECKSUM files
	Security layer
	make plugins configurable, adjust @ISA
	Make configurable that multiple additional index files can be
	integrated (for Intra-CPANs). I believe CPAN::Site did it right
	anyway, so we might skip this.
	Make the 'make' command itself configurable as suggested by Rujith de
	Silva <rujith.desilva@ps.net>, who wants to run 'sudo make install'
	instead of 'make install'. (Fixing this is delayed, because it
	interacts with Make.pm)
