Subject: urllist falls back to cpan.org but not forward to configured value
Date: Tue, 13 Dec 2011 20:41:28 -0800
To: bug-CPAN@rt.cpan.org
From: zengargoyle <zengargoyle@gmail.com>
CPAN 1.960001 Perl 5.14.2 A MyConfig.pm setup to use a local mirror: 'urllist' => [q[http://zim.local/CPAN]], and doing roughly: while (my $pkg = <>) { chomp $pkg; my $mostly_useless_rc = CPAN::Shel->install($pkg); } to do a batch of installs... when a distribution fie is not found for some reason on the local mirror, CPAN will (grrr) switch to http://www.cpan.org and (grrr more) will continue to use www.cpan.org for the rest of the installations instead of attempting to switch back to the requested local mirror. Further info. I had just done a minicpan update on the local server (guess a few files hadn't made it to ftp.osuosl.org/pub/CPAN yet) and using the output of cpan-outdated (so looking for specific A/AU/AUTHOR/Dist-#.#.tar.gz dists). No problems seen with the local mirror, the first half of the installs went as planned until the switch to www.cpan.org
