|Subject:||output too verbose|
I really would like CPAN.pm to be much less verbose. The purpose of feedback to the user, is that they see when things go wrong (or right). The output of CPAN.pm is so verbose (by default only?) that it is impossible for people to understand what is happening. My request is especially focused on messages like 'YAML' not installed, falling back to Data::Dumper and Storable to read prefs '/root/.cpan/prefs' Iff there is a good fallback, then why bother the user with this remark which is only understandable by Perl die-hards? My wish: please create an output-log in a file, and only show the user whether an installation was completed successfully or not, with a pointer to the (temporary) log.
