Subject: if ~/.pause missing create it
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 365b
I forget the annoying and nearly unparseable error I got a few minutes ago when trying to release. It basically said 'my auth credentials were wrong' in a much less clear manner. I had not defined a .pause since reinstalling the system. It would be nice if in the case of a missing .pause if dzil would prompt for a username and password and create the .pause.

DZ will not create or alter that configuration, but it is planned to prompt for credentials if needed. This ticket will stand for that todo. -- rjbs
added there is no prompt_pw method yet, so we'll need to add one to suppress the echo -- rjbs
