Subject: force should override distroprefs disabled
I think force should override distroprefs disabled=1. Or at least fforce should. I'm not sure if this means just repurposing $self->{force_update} for CPAN::Distribution::get() or if a new forcing flag should be added. David
Thanks for the suggestion, great idea. I'm not yet sure how *exactly* this should be done nor how to implement it. For a quick workaround: I always say o conf prefs_dir "" when disabled=1 strikes and set it back later.
I think it's working now in 1.92_59. Thanks David,
