Subject: Could CPAN::Reporter list prerequisites of prerequisites?

I received this failure notice: http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/110151b2-a54a-11df-9029-8b70cb7a5043 The problem is that there is no way to tell from that report what the actual problem is. I just happened to know about the failure already. HTML::DOM requires HTML::Tree and HTML::DOM 0.042 and earlier are not compatible with HTML::Tree 3.24_x. If CPAN::Reporter could list the prerequisites recursively, I’m sure it would be a great help to many people.

It's a great idea, but technically difficult given what information is known at the time tests are run. That said, it might be possible to do more along these lines as "version 2" CPAN Testers clients are written. -- David
