Description

Bruce, this is up your alley, I'm just creating a ticket so we have a reminder.

Change History (5)

Yes, but the volume of new packages will make it a challenge unless I set up the scripts to ignore the perl pages.

comment:2 by ken@…, 3 years ago

For preference, only the perl modules packages (i.e. not the perl dependencies) should be tested.

comment:3 by Bruce Dubbs, 3 years ago

Looking at the wget list, all primary perl modules are at

Was this intentional?

comment:4 by Bruce Dubbs, 3 years ago

It turns out that ignoring the perl dependencies can be done with one php line due to the differences in url mentioned in comment 3. Should be fixed at revision 20718, but leaving this ticket open for Ken's comment.

Yes, it matches what we had in the 8.3 release. Glad it turned out to be useful.

Some of these low-level modules have at times in the past had frequent new versions, picking them up automatically seems excess work.

I was shocked when I saw that ExtUtils-LibBuilder had appeared out of nowhere in the new versions, and sorry that this needed work. Thanks for fixing it.

I've noted the two different locations in packages.ent in r20719.
