=head1 NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::FakeRelease - fake plugin to test release

=head1 VERSION

version 6.025

=head1 SYNOPSIS

    [FakeRelease]
    user = CPANAUTHORID ; # optional.

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This plugin is a L<Releaser|Dist::Zilla::Role::Releaser> that does nothing. It
is directed to plugin authors, who may need a dumb release plugin to test their
shiny plugin implementing L<BeforeRelease|Dist::Zilla::Role::BeforeRelease>
and L<AfterRelease|Dist::Zilla::Role::AfterRelease>.

When this plugin does the release, it will just log a message and finish.

If you set the environment variable C<DZIL_FAKERELEASE_FAIL> to a true value,
the plugin will die instead of doing nothing. This can be useful for
authors wanting to test reliably that release failed.

You can optionally provide the 'user' parameter, which defaults to 'AUTHORID',
which will allow things that depend on this metadata
( Sometimes provided by L<UploadToCPAN|Dist::Zilla::Plugin::UploadToCPAN> ) to still work.
( For example: L<Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Twitter> )

=head1 PERL VERSION

This module should work on any version of perl still receiving updates from
the Perl 5 Porters.  This means it should work on any version of perl released
in the last two to three years.  (That is, if the most recently released
version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the
minimum required version will not be increased.  The version may be increased
for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower
the minimum required perl.
