Subject: Use of sudo in test suite is problematic
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 428b
t/16-expire-with-sudo.t uses sudo, which may or may not be available; also the usage of sudo does not work well with automatic systems (automated installers or CPAN Testers smokers) if the user running the test suite is not configured for password-less sudo usage. I think it would be best to check before if password-less sudo is possible (e.g. running something like "sudo -n ...") and skip the test if this is not the case.
