Subject: Random test results
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 549b
I just ran 'make test' about 5 times in a row. The last run was a PASS, the others FAIL. This also explains why some of my smokers have sent both FAIL and PASS. Example: FAIL http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/10239880 PASS http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/10239465 You can tell that they are the same perl by looking at the git commit id. Initially I thought this is an undeclared dependency, but the experiment shows it's random. I just repeated the experiment and this time I had several PASS in a row and then a FAIL. HTH, Best,

Yeah, I know... the tests are pretty badly written, and full of race conditions. I'll get around to fixing that one of these days... -doy
This should be pretty much fixed in 0.10.
