Subject: have a nicer UNKNOWN intro paragraph
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
Suggestion from sisyphus: I guess my only quibble would be that the diagnostic still implies that the author has made a mistake. I'm looking at the paragraph: -------------------------------------------- This could be because your distribution had an error during the make/build stage, did not define tests, tests could not be found, because your tests were interrupted before they finished, or because the results of the tests could not be parsed. You may wish to consult the CPAN Testers Wiki: -------------------------------------------- The super-sensitive module author will still read that as implying that "there's something wrong with your distro", even though the real problem could be that the tester's environment is lacking something (eg the mpc library). Maybe something like: -------------------------------------------- This could be because the tester's build environment lacked a necessary element, because your distribution had an error during the make/build stage, because tests were not defined or could not be found, because your tests were interrupted before they finished, or because the results of the tests could not be parsed. You may wish to consult the CPAN Testers Wiki: --------------------------------------------
