Subject: CPAN clucks when unable to find a file in a mirror
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 659b
When installing a distribution, if CPAN is unable to find the files in a given mirror it will generate a cluck output of the error. This is massive overkill. Previously, a simple error message stating it was unable to find the given file on said mirror. CPAN would then continue on to check other mirrors. This debugging output is being generated for every remote file request to the mirror. This has become an issue for us at $work as we are using CPAN::Mini to maintain our internal packages. Any attempts at building now generate massive error output with little reason. Attached I have included a sample of what the current behavior looks like.

On a side note, the 5s forced sleep when the aforementioned 404 error occurs could be considered unnecessary as it is really only an issue if none of the mirrors function correctly.

This is a known issue and has already been patched in the CPAN.pm source repository. Regards, David

The problem is that almost nobody uses this fix as no public CPAN.pm release occured for nearly 2 years. -- Olivier Mengué - http://search.cpan.org/~dolmen/ http://github.com/dolmen/

We expect to have a stable release in the next few weeks before Perl 5.14 is finalized.
