|Subject:||Don't feature TODO tests so prominently|
Feel free to WONTFIX this one, but... Large applications (especially non-pure-Perl) that use TAP and are very portable tend to aggregate a lot of TODO items on obscure platforms. TAP offers two ways to deal with this, you detect this in advance and SKIP these tests, or you TODO them. I think it'd be nice if TODO tests weren't reported so prominently, right now they're reported with basically the same prominence as failures. Instead it would be nice if it was just: All tests successful. In addition there were $n passing TODO tests The specifics about the TODO tests could then be queried by running prove with --todo-analyze or some better named option. Morits and rafl in #toolchain roughly agreed on this behavior, i.e. that it shouldn't be so verbose, not the specific suggestion above.
