|Subject:||Failed Test Suite with Mail::SpamAssassin 3.2.3|
Dear Andreas J. König, Hi. This is imacat from Taiwan. I found a strange issue that I cannot dig further. It seems that CPAN 1.9203 failed to run the test suite of Mail::SpamAssassin 3.2.3 without previous version of Mail::SpamAssassin installed. You may refer to this test report: Mail::SpamAssassin 3.2.3 without previous version installedMail::SpamAssassin 3.2.0 without previous version installed Mail::SpamAssassin 3.2.3 with 3.2.0 installed However, CPAN 1.9203 runs the test suite of Mail::SpamAssassin 3.2.0 nicely. If I install Mail::SpamAssassin 3.2.0 first, CPAN 1.9203 runs the test suite of 3.2.3 nicely, too. CPAN 1.7602 (comes with Perl 5.8.8) works nicely, too. If I run "perl Makefile.PL; make; make test" manually on Mail::SpamAssassin 3.2.3, it works nicely, too. This issue seems to be specific to newer versions of CPAN. Sorry that since both CPAN and Mail::SpamAssassin are big modules, its a little difficult for me to dig further. But I still tried to limit the scope of this issue as possible. I do not know if this is a general issue or is specific to Mail::SpamAssassin 3.2.3. But I worry that if this is a general issue then all CPAN testers reporting with CPAN 1.9203 may suffer from this issue, and report many wrong result to innocent modules. (I'm still using CPANPLUS.) Please tell me if there is any question, or if I could be of help. Thank you.
