Subject: Net::LibIDN needed for unit tests
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 468b
Net::LibIDN is listed as an "optional" module for Net::DNS. However if you do not install it, then Net::DNS::SEC cannot complete its unit tests. I'm not certain where this should be fixed. build_requires in Net::DNS::SEC would be good enough for me. Or make it a requirement for Net::DNS since the code doesn't seem to handle it well if the module is missing. Either way both of these modules are yours, so I thought I'd report it and see what you thought. Thanks!

I had no difficulty installing Net::DNS::SEC on a machine without Net::LibIDN. Neither does Net::DNS::SEC nor any of its test scripts do anything which involves non-ASCII domain names. As you provided not a shred of analysable evidence to support your claim, I do not propose to pursue this further. I suggest you try again, paying particular attention to any messages about version numbers.
