Subject: 1.46_01: dependency on Scalar::Util 1.46_01 neither declared nor declarable
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 667b
This is more a memo to all puzzled parties than a bug report. List-Util-1.46_01 fails for many of my smokers but for none of the other cpantesters' smokers. The reason is that my smokers skip a percentage of new releases in the intent to catch cross version dependencies. And this strategy was a full success. If I test HAARG/List-Util-1.46_01.tar.gz without having installed HAARG/Scalar-Util-1.46_01.tar.gz I get fails. If I test HAARG/List-Util-1.46_01.tar.gz on a perl with HAARG/Scalar-Util-1.46_01.tar.gz installed, I get a pass. This is not even declarable because both are DEV releases and as such not indexed.

The lack of a dependency on Scalar::Util is intentional, as it is meant to work with the old version installed. Even if the newer Scalar::Util was indexed, depending on it would entirely defeat the point of splitting the dist. Still looking into the failures.
